joyceshookery I recycle cans and bottles because I get money, and even $5-7 makes it worth my while...that is as long as I have a car to haul them to the recycling center. When I didn't have a car, I gave my cans and bottles to a friend. There's no law that says I MUST...

joyceshookery Hatley, I go through that sleep/wake thing, also. When I get serious about getting a good night's sleep I take a 100 mg Trazadone. I've been up all night again working on crochet. Taking a pill might not be the answer for you. It works for me and it could help...

joyceshookery Don't know how high your sugar goes and it would probably be a good idea to ask your doctor for sure about having ice cream. There are some "no sugar added" ice creams that are really yummy. There might be some specific ice creasm made for diabetics but I...
