Aaron & I always laugh at those Wilford Brimley commercials where he talks about his ‘dia-beet-us’!! It drives me crazy (the kind of crazy where I roll my eyes but still giggle a little). Like when my cousin still asks me if I’ve taken my ‘sugar pill’ no matter how many times I’ve told her I’m on insulin. Haha!
This weekend I remembered how much my ‘beetus does NOT like it when I’m sick. My numbers were rollercoaster-ing all weekend & I”m still having some trouble honing them in.
Being sick with diabetes is so much more work. If I’m nauseous I have to think ‘is it the high blood sugar or the bug?’ If I have crackers & sprite I have to think ‘should I do a full bolus? what if i puke later?’ Ugh!! But that’s why I haven’t posted in a few days. ‘Beetus & I were fighting the stomach bug that seems to be going around our little town.
All is better now though!!! 🙂 & I have some good news:
My letter to the editor that I wrote about Diabetes Awareness Month & World Diabetes Day ran in our local paper yesterday!! I’m not sure about the title they gave it but I digress. You can read my letter here!! I’m so excited, I know it’s not much but it’s still helping to raise awareness about Diabetes & some of the things going on this month.
I also got my postcard out in the mail for the World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange.
Had to represent good ol’ NC bay-bay!!! 🙂 Can’t wait to receive mine in the mail hopefully soon!!!
Never in my life have I been so involved in the Diabetes Community & I really wish I would have started sooner. I’m meeting a ton of great new people, getting a lot of support from people who know what I’m going through, & really feeling like I’m making a difference. Even if it’s just a small one.
It’s time for me to show my diabetes whose boss. I’m in control of this disease not the other way around. I can show others & myself that diabetes doesn’t always have to be bad.
It appears all the bones, walking, playing with ropes & squeaky balls have left Luke in a ‘oh isn’t life as a dog hard’ pose. Because we don’t spoil him at all you know. 😉
