#Diabetics: Support for #Women with #Gestational #Diabetes. #diabetic

A pregnant woman who has been diagnosed with gestational diabetes is going to receive a lot of medical support in the form of frequent doctor appointments and nutritional counseling. But she may also be in the need of emotional support. It is hard to change the way you eat and live your life when you are pregnant and adjusting to a new disease in addition to that can be overwhelming.

There are many forms of support you can seek out. The support from your spouse or partner is going to be very important. They cannot be eating an ice cream sundae in front of you while you are expected to abstain. Since eating like a diabetic is a healthy lifestyle change, you both should follow the diet set forth for you keeping in mind the extra caloric needs of different people.
Joining a group of pregnant women is helpful too.You can go through your pregnancies together and when your babies are born you can continue with your support network as 
your children grow up together. Touch base with your endocrinologist to see if they know of a support group specifically for women with gestational diabetes.  You can share recipe tips and provide the emotional support needed as you ride the roller coaster of pregnancy with diabetes.

There are many online support groups too with a specialization in many different complications that can arise in pregnancy. Or join a support group for woman online 
whose babies are due at the same time as yours. You may even meet someone online that lives in your neighborhood.

Don't feel that you have to deal with your diabetes on your own.  Help and support are available. If you can't find it readily with a little research you are sure to find what you need.

#Masturbation techniques for maximum #Pleasure

 1) The basics – Madam Palm and her five lovely daughters

masturbation: sex with someone you love. Most people learn pretty early on that their hand is a capable friend with benefits. It’s natural, effective and whole lot of fun.

Yet many guys still get stuck thinking that the best way to masturbate is simply as follows:

    Switch on a movie.
    Grip penis gently but firmly in your strong hand.
    Move up and down repeatedly at lightning speed.
    Ejaculate into a tissue.
    Return to the paused video game.

This is of course one of the most satisfying masturbation techniques known to mankind.

The speed and pressure you can apply brings about a satisfying orgasm. But you can add much more variety as you’ll see in the next few tips.

2) Don’t forget Madam Palm’s twin sister: 4 ways to masturbate using your other hand

two hands are better than one. Even at this basic level, you can still spice things up by using your other hand. Here are some ideas:

    Try only using your other hand.

    Try using both hands at the same time. If you can put them one next to the other on your shaft, then lucky for you and any girl you meet. But if not, you can try placing the penis in between both palms pressed together.

    You can use one hand to move up and down the shaft while the other plays with the head of your penis.

    Wringing is a great double-handed technique. Imagine wringing the water out of a cloth by squeezing your hands in opposite directions. Just be a bit more gentle with yourself!

3) Don’t leave your balls hanging

2 balls. Your balls are more than just an odd shaped storage facility. They are an erogenous zone which you can use to heighten your orgasms.

It’s up to you to work out the best way to masturbate by including your testicles; all guys are different, but here are some suggestions:

    Pull them slightly downwards while masturbating.
    Try caressing, stroking or tickling them – experiment to see what and where feels good.
    Try just holding them in a light but firm grip with the other hand.

There is another good reason to spend some quality time with your balls. If you know what they feel like normally, you can look out for any unusual lumps – something all guys should do on a regular basis.

4) It’s not just women that have multiple erogenous zones

Diagram of the male and female erogenous zonesIf you think the best way to masturbate is all about your penis, and maybe your balls, then think again.

It’s a popular belief that only women are blessed with multiple erogenous zones. But the truth is that men are more sensitive than you might think.

For example try touching your nipples in the way that you would a woman’s. Experiment with different strokes, pressure and movements.

Try caressing the inside of your thighs or your stomach. If there’s anywhere that you know you are sensitive, don’t be afraid to explore yourself further with touch.

Some guys will be more sensitive than others in different areas, so it’s up to you to find out what works for you. There are no rules, so get to know your own body and find out what floats your boat.

5) Moving south: the perineum

The Perineum is the area in-between your anus and balls. It’s a soft padded area which is sensitive to touch. You can try caressing it or pushing it gently with your spare hand.

6) The holy grail of the male G-spot

diagram showing the man's g-spot. Some cynical folk will say the male g-spot is a lost Atlantis which never existed in the first place.

But there’s no doubt that there are parts inside the anus which respond well to self-stimulation.

For more open-minded and less squeamish guys, one of the best ways to masturbate is to include the anus. For others it’s strictly a one-way street.

If you’re willing to explore here though, then you could be in for an orgasm-increasing treat. Here are some ideas for you:

    Don’t forget to wash before you start.
    Check that your chosen nail (yes – one finger will do) is short and not sharp. File it down if necessary.
    Add plenty of lubricant on your finger (proper lubricant is better so you don’t accidentally stick something in there which can burn)
    Rub around the outside of your anus to begin with.
    Gently insert a finger as far as is comfortable.
    You can then just keep the finger inside while you masturbate with your other hand as normal, or move it gently in and out. Whatever works for you.
    The G-Spot is a small area a couple of inches inside. It should feel like a little ball just over an inch in diameter. This is actually the outside of the prostate. You can softly rub this spot if you manage to find it, and if it’s pleasurable.

Stimulating the G-Spot is known in the tantric sex world as a prostate massage, and is an effective way of enhancing orgasm. The key though with all these ideas is to be gentle and soft.

7) Experiment with different positions

If you just sit in your favorite chair or lie on your bed, you’re not going to get anywhere near simulating sex.

And as you’ll find out in part 3, simulating sex is one of the most important masturbation techniques for men. Here are 3 ways you can use your body more effectively:

    Hold your penis under your body, lying on your bed on top of your hand. Then thrust into your hand.

    Try kneeling or standing and thrusting into your hand. The idea is to keep your hand still and use your body to move.

    Change positions from time to time: kneeling, standing, sitting, swopping hands or anything you can think of to add variety.

    And in case you’re wondering, unless you’re a yoga master, have a missing rib or could enter the Guinness book of records for your length, it’s extremely unlikely you’ll be able to do the necessary gymnastics to use your own mouth.

#Wellness: #Companies make millions off #lead-poisoned, poor #blacks. #Longevity

This is the one of the heaviest stories I've read in years. A chilling reminder of how systemic practices perpetuate race and class inequity in the U.S. 

First, you have thousands of poor folks of color poisoned by lead paint in places like Baltimore (including, it should be noted, Freddie Gray), thanks to the indifference of landlords, local housing authorities and elected officials, going back decades. This lead then impairs cognitive development (and is also correlated highly with criminal acting out by the way). 

Then when lawsuits finally seek to provide some measure of relief to the victims, companies swoop in and offer buy-outs of the victims' structured settlements, for pennies on the dollar, even though the terms of the agreements are both hard to understand (especially when cognitively impaired) and almost impossible for a desperately poor person to resist. When you're desperate, these kinds of deals probably look good to many folks. The "choice" they are exercising in taking the deals is no choice at all, in any meaningful sense. The fact that there are investors out there who make money buying up people's settlements -- when those settlements are the result of years of institutional racism and class oppression -- means there are people making serious bank directly BECAUSE poor black folks were poisoned. 

In other words, rich white people (and make no mistake, that's mostly who the investors are, given what we know about the racial demographics of investors generally) are profiting off of black pain. Directly. Not coincidentally. Not passively. Actively profiteering from the destruction of black lives. This is why we have to insist that Black Lives Matter. Because some folks clearly need a reminder.

Structured-settlement annuitants are lured by quick cash to unload their future payouts for dimes on the dollar.

#Diabetics: Testing your #Blood Sugar. #gestational #diabetic

When you have gestational diabetes your doctor is going to run tests at the beginning but then it is going to be up to you to monitor your own blood sugar on a daily basis.  You will still get the support that you will need but a lot of the process of keeping your blood sugar under control is going to be left in your hands.

This will be done with a glucose monitor.  It is a very quick and simple procedure.  You prick your finger with a lancet using a lancet device.  A lancet is a plastic piece with a pointed metal tip that is put into a pen-like device that is used to draw blood from your finger.  It is relatively painless and with newer monitors there is very little blood that is needed to run the test.

Your monitor will also come with testing strips, a piece of plastic that has a microchip in one and a place to put the droop of blood on the other.  This strip is placed into the monitor, you put the drop of blood from your finger onto the strip and the monitor performs the test.  Different monitors take varying amounts of time but the average is between five and twenty seconds.

When you are first diagnosed with gestational diabetes you will be asked to test your blood sugar seven times in one day.  You will test:

* First thing in the morning before you eat (a fasting test)
* 1 hour after eating breakfast
* Before you eat lunch
* 1 hour after eating lunch
* Before you eat dinner
* 1 hour after eating dinner
* Before going to bed
The more you test the better idea you will have on how well you are managing your diabetes.  It is all the way to determine if you are giving yourself enough insulin.  

#Diabetic: Precautions #diabetics should take with #Gestational #diabetes.

When your Blood Sugar is Too Low
In a perfect diabetic world, you take your insulin, eat your meals and exercise and your blood glucose levels remain stable.  But things happen, you take your insulin late, you eat a light meal and then spend all afternoon running errands.  This is a recipe for hypoglycemia a condition when your blood glucose levels fall dangerously low.

Hypoglycemia isn't so much a hazard for the baby but it is for a mom with gestational diabetes.  The best way to prevent this from happening is to know the signs and how you feel when you blood sugar is getting low and to carry emergency supplies with you at all times.  

Some of the symptoms of low blood sugar include feeling:

* Hungry
* Nauseous
* Light-headed
* Faint

In the case of any of these symptoms, you should test your blood sugar right away and have something to eat.  The best choice is a glass of juice or another food item that is considered fast-acting such as a piece of fruit or a piece of candy.  Carry something with you at all times and a regular snack too.  If you are out and need to eat (say you are stuck in your car during a traffic jam) it is important to have food with you.

Other precautions that you should take when you have #gestational diabetes include 
carrying a card or another item that identifies you have diabetes and what type of insulin you are taking.  The worse case scenario is you passing out and the people who come to help you need to know that you are diabetic.  Make sure people at work and your family members are aware of your condition and know what warning signs to look for if you need help and when to bring your some juice or something else to eat.

#Diabetics:When you get Sick and have #Gestational #Diabetes

Aside from the morning sickness that many women suffer from in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, you may catch a cold or the flu before your baby is born.  In of itself, this isn't a fun experience but when you have gestational diabetes and are on insulin it is very important that you take extra good care of yourself.

It is important to remember that no matter how you are feeling, you need to take your insulin.  Your body relies on the external source of insulin and needs it to keep 
functioning properly.  But what do you do if you have the flu and are vomiting or don't have any appetite to eat.  As a short term solution, take your insulin and drink a soda that is not diet (you want the sugar in this case).  If you are able to, nibble on crackers or dry toast.  All the while, you need to keep a very close eye on your glucose levels with your monitor.  
 You need to balance the insulin you are taking and the food you are consuming so your blood sugar levels do not drop.  If you are unsure of what to do, contact your doctor.  A better plan is to have this discussion with your doctor before you get sick.  Your health care provider will give you guidelines to follow when you become ill and when you should contact the office or go to the hospital if things are progressively getting worse.

Getting sick is never fun but being pregnant and sick isn't just about you.  You have to still take care of your baby and yourself.  Be aware that when you are sick, your blood sugars may not act as they normally do, test more often to keep track of what the results are.

#Transsexual: How to Transition from Male to Female #Transgender #CaitlynJenner #caitlyn

Male-to-female, or MTF, can be used as another term for trans woman. Whether you are a transgender or genderqueer, physical transition doesn't mean one has to have all of the options of having a physical transition. A trans woman may be straight, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, or even asexual. They wear whatever they want, whether it's feminine, masculine, or androgynous. You live your life however makes you feel happy. There is no "right" or "wrong" way of physically transitioning. You can go with whatever makes you feel comfortable.


  1. Practice an effort on passing - clothing, manners, and speech (body language is so so important). But just remember to be yourself. Pick the clothes that make you feel comfortable the most. You can train your voice to sound feminine. This can take a lot of time and work to train your voice at a certain pinch. Help with voice therapy is available through some speech therapists who specialize in transgender voice.

  2. Seek a qualified therapist who knows about gender transition. Seeing a therapist is required before you can get hormones and/or surgery, and therapists can also help with gender dysphoria and other issues you experience.
    • After plenty of thought, if you feel you need to pursue to physically transitioning, your therapist will write you a referral letter for an endocrinologist.

  3. The endocrinologist will prescribe a hormone regimen consisting of an estrogen and an anti-androgen.
    • There are many different kinds of medicine and forms, and all can cause severe liver damage if not monitored by a physician. NEVER try to self-medicate without a doctor.

  4. Know all the consequences:
    • You may grow breasts, depending on age and genetics.
    • Your breasts will continue growing in size for possibly the same amount of time for adolescence (i.e. 6-15 years), but not very substantially if you stop taking estros and anti-andros.
    • Stopping maintenance totally within or even after 3-6 month development period can cause bouts of severe and sudden exhaustion, weight gain, hallucinations, and/or uncontrollable erections.

  5. Transition for MTF Step 5.jpg

    It will take several hundred hours of painful electrolysis to remove a full beard (at 75-100 dollars per hour). You should begin this early on as it takes many years to complete and also it is a good test of your pain threshold and commitment. If you have pale skin and darker hair, Laser Hair removal can be a cost-effective and less painful alternative, although it technically is not considered permanent hair removal, but hair reduction. 
  6. Transition for MTF Step 6.jpg

    Laser hair removal can be used on the body if you have dark hair and light skin. This will cost another 100-400 dollars per procedure, depending on how hairy you are and which parts of your body are being cleared of hair.
  7. Transition for MTF Step 7.jpg

    Consider breast implants carefully. Many find that breasts continue to grow, but very slowly, so after ten years you can end up with too large breasts. Many people don't get implants. Both of these are available in the US and overseas. It is considered as a best placement to have either type inserted under the muscle to provide a more natural look. They ride high and settle into place in the first 6 months post-procedure.
    • Saline implants involve a smaller incision near the armpit, and they are inflated after insertion.
    • Silicon implants are similar to gummy bears in composition. The days of these spilling out are gone with technology that has been proven for more then 10 years now.
    • Know that breast implants are a risky procedure, and they may leak toxins. Once you have them, it's unwise to have them permanently removed: your chest probably won't look good. Make sure that you are certain that you want them before you get them.

  8. Facial feminization surgery is optional depending on the individual's circumstances; it can also be very expensive.

  9. Read and learn as much as you can before going forward with your plans. Plan financially as well as it may cost upwards of 50,000 - 75,000 dollars to transition [including FFS] plus you may need savings for time between jobs.

  10. Join support groups in your area or online support groups like,, etc, which will help you get through your transition peacefully and not make you feel like you are the only one transitioning.

Tips and Warnings

  • There will be a period of swelling in your nipples and breast, pain levels vary by individual, make sure you are eating well and are not dieting at the same time to make the best of dosage effects.
  • If you feel ill, consult your doctor.
  • Do not stop HRT unless medically directed to do so, starting and stopping can cause damage to your endocrine system.
  • If you absolutely must self-medicate (which is not recommended, but some poor transgender people do it due to costs), research thoroughly. Seek every nook and corner of this part of the subject.
  • It's never too late to transition. Even if you're an adult, you can still transition and look great.
  • Don't follow what amount of pills they might have taken because everybody is biologically different, we age differently, look differently and act differently, who knows us better than ourselves, so the key is know thy body!

#Transsexual Women: A Gender Transition. #erotic #transwoman #transsexuality

Are you sure?
I wish I could tell you your life will get better just after transition but that would be a lie. A lot of girls end up regretting all the changes: often times for the wrong reasons. The most important aspect of a successful transition is rebuilding an emotional infrastructure: that support group of dear friends & family that comprise of our happiness through the course of each week & year.

Will your life be better after you transition?

Fundamentally, perhaps yes. However, in terms of “quality of life” - the answer is almost always “no”. Even in the best of circumstances, you’ll face these challenges:

  1. You’ll lose a lot of friends. Many that you retain will never enjoy the same level of intimacy as before.
  2. You’ll face strained relationships with some family members.
  3. You’ll live with lots of emotional scars from hurtful comments from loved ones - even strangers.
  4. Your work & career options will be limited. You might lose your job and your ability to earn a decent living at a time when costs associated with a successful transition are straining your resources.
  5. The process to successfully change your tender is very long, expensive & sometimes painful.

The best real-life analogy I can offer comparing what transition will & won't be?
I sometimes compare a gender transition to resolving a life-long challenge with horrible back pain. Anyone whose ever experienced severe spinal issues is aware how it affects every movement & thus every aspect of your life. If you get it repaired? You simply now have a good back - not necessarily a good

Now suppose you were born with this painful back pain. Throughout your entire life you found it almost impossible to function because of the pain associated with this birth defect. You find out you can fix it...but it'll cost you about ten focused years of your life. In that process you'll probably lose a lot of friends & family, most of your money & your subsequent career opportunities will be minimized. 

Is your back ache so miserable that you're willing to go through all this to enjoy a normal life?

It's very important to carefully consider this issue. One big reason? After you fix that back-ache, most of your other life issues, feelings of inadequacy, frustrations...? They're still there. The only thing that's changed is your back no longer hurts. 

It creates a basis for a lot more internal happiness. You’re no longer lying to the world, or yourself. Unfortunately, inner solace is only good for so much joy: you can’t grab a cup of coffee with it or trash talk your favorite nemesis.

#Longevity: Use the Secret in Your Life. #attraction, #manifesting

There are three powerful steps you can take right now to apply the secret law of attraction in your life right now.  These steps although simple they are powerful and effective.

The first thing everyone wants to know after watching the move the secret is, “How do I use the Secret?”  That’s understandable because although the movie is good and it does introduce you to the law of attraction it does not quite tell you how to properly apply it to your life.

The First Step

One of the first things you can do in using the secret law of attraction in y our life is to educate yourself as much as possible on the subject of the law of attraction.  Learn the very nature of the law of attraction and how it influences your life. 

The core of the secret, are your thoughts which goes a lot deeper than negative verses positive thought.  If you understood the truly nature of thought you would be a huge step above those who think they understand the law of attraction.

The Second Step

The second step to mastering the secret law of attraction is to get a journal and begin to write.  Do you know most people have no clue what their predominant thought patters is, nor do they even know what it is that they want.

When you get a journal you can begin to explore your feelings on a much deeper level.  Seeing your feelings on paper clears it up from being cluttered in your mind.

The Third Step

The third step to using the secret law of attraction is to take small inspired action towards your goals.  With your new law of attraction journal you can begin to track daily every action you take that is in alignment with your goals.  Its very hard for most people to be aware of the way they spend their time.  When you set a specific plan and track it in your journal you have a better change of seeing how your week has gone, your month and then your year.

Much time can pass with many of us taking the same tiresome actions that get us the same lousy results again and again.  Then many people say that the law of attraction did not work in their lives but actually the law of attraction did work.  It simply worked to give you more of the same conditions you were creating again and again.
