    i’m trying to reach out to all the moms or dads on this forum. im trying to get a friend of mine help with clothes and shoes for her 5 kids by tomorrow. she lives in a town called cape girardeau mo, and they start school tomorrow. I have a paypal account if anyone is able to donate anything, we are trying to raise at least $300 before tomorrow and I can transfer that money to her on her prepaid card today and she has a local walmart that stays open 24/7. I know this isn’t what our moms meet is, but i’m hoping it can be. if any of you are able to be of support it would mean the world to her. she is only getting disability right now and her dad just passed a few months ago and she had to bury him with what her family had saved up. She is also a single mom.
    here is my paypal link and i can send pics of her family if anyone can help just to prove she was in need.

    We have tried for a month now to get help with her local charities and churches and no one had funding to do so. Please pass this along and maybe a prayer will be heard tonight. Thanks everyone.

    Diabetic neuropathy is a chronic condition that sometimes accompanies diabetes mellitus. Brought on by long term high blood sugar, this is usually a complication affecting the feet and legs. Over time the nerves become damaged and fail to send sensational messages to the brain. This loss of sensation can cause injuries on the feet to go unnoticed, leading to ulcers.

    Diabetics have to watch their carbohydrate intake, and bread is a major player in a typical American’s diet. Try to find a bread with at least 5 grams of fiber AND protein per slice so that eating it is validated by the nutrients it’s carrying. Also avoid preservatives as they’re not healthy either.

    Did you know that it is recommended that diabetics have a diet high in dairy? Studies show that dairy can help keep blood sugar levels from spiking, so having as much low-fat dairy as possible, can be a huge help to a diabetic. Have a tall glass of skim milk at breakfast and some cheese at lunch. It’s healthy and tasty!

    When a child has Diabetes, you need to ensure that everyone in their life is aware of the consequences of not adhering strictly to their new eating rules. If they go to their Grandparents’ house, ensure they know how important it is for the child to only receive healthy snacks.

    Diabetics must remember that cough lozenges are still candies! Try to buy herbal lozenges which are sweetened with honey, or options that have artificial sweeteners, to make sure that your blood sugar doesn’t spike while you have a cough or cold. We have to be so careful about absolutely everything we ingest!

    There are so many resources online for diabetics, including the American Diabetes Association, so make use of all they have to offer! Many have support groups, articles, research and even links to local educators, who can help you learn even more. Take the time to know what’s going on in your body and you’ll live a long, healthy life.

    A great breakfast food for a Diabetic is grapefruit! It’s been known to assist people with weight loss even when they do nothing else. Be careful that you aren’t on any pills, like atorvastatin for cholesterol, that have adverse reactions when you ingest grapefruit. It can actually increase their potency and potentially lead to an overdose.

    To help yourself deal with a diabetes diagnosis, arrange to meet with a diabetes expert or take a class. Diabetes may seem as though it’s overwhelming to live with, but a good instructor can help simplify the disease and give you ways to cope. Getting good advice from a knowledgeable source is invaluable to any diabetes sufferer.

    If you are diabetic and notice numbness, tingling, pain or burning in your legs or feet, report these symptoms to your doctor immediately. Diabetic neuropathy can be avoided by keeping your blood sugar levels under control. It’s important for diabetics to treat their feet well. Toenails should be clipped regularly, skin should be moisturized and shoes should be comfortable and fit properly.
