Usually I handle the whole diabetes thing with sarcasm and jokes. Occasionally…erm, regularly stating some frustration. Today is different. Today I am sad. Today I am disappointed. Today I feel less. Today diabetes has brought on tears.

Sister Time

My sister and I don’t get to spend much time together. I work odd hours and haven’t been feeling great and she has a boyfriend, school and work. Last week after 8 days of planning we went to lunch and a movie. Then tonight we both had cancelled plans…so we went to dinner and a movie!

Fish Out Of Water

…Now I’m a fish IN water.

It’s wonderful to swim without a time limit. Saturday night was the first time, Sunday the second. I LOVE it. I’m still working on the right basal rate, with time I’m sure I’ll figure it out. …That and how to keep water out of my ear! Continue reading
