I know that it has been a while since I last posted. And I do feel some obligation to get something new out there – self imposed, I know, but I still feel it.
I sat down tonight to try to put something together, and it’s just not flowing. I have not felt like writing [...]Continue Reading →
I really appreciate all of your support to my last post. I can’t tell you how meaningful it is to me. I think the OC is the best thing I’ve found since my insulin pump. You all are the best. I wish I could find words that better expressed how much you all [...]Continue Reading →
Is it just me, or is there a lot of emotion floating around the OC lately?
I thought it was just me, but then I sat down tonight to catch up on some posts, and I was just struck by the seemingly all encompassing “blah” that many of us are going through right now.

I’m looking for some opinions here.
If you have something more concrete than an opinion, that’s even better.
I have a story to share, but I don’t have time to post about it right now. But due to the events in that story, I had the first reading of “Hi” on my meter last night [...]Continue Reading →

It doesn’t hurt. The world is not falling apart. In fact, I have not noticed a single bad thing as a result of not logging.

There are things in life that we don’t have a choice about. Diabetes is, of course, one of those things. Gas prices and taxes are a couple others…
I don’t like having diabetes. In fact, it quite honestly really sucks. We find a way to do what we have to do, and to lead mostly [...]Continue Reading →

Instead I’m talking about the disconnect we have in one of our very basic bodily systems.
The body is a fascinating machine. One that we probably don’t give it’s due credit [...]Continue Reading →
One of those things.
It’s usually just swept under the carpet until the pile of crap under the carpet is just too noticeable to be ignored.
I don’t know what the current statistics are, but those dealing with a chronic condition such as diabetes are more likely to experience clinical depression. It’s something like two [...]Continue Reading →
If you take the last five or ten decisions you have made, everything from what to eat or drink to whether or not you should do something right now or later, and look at the matrix of just how many different combinations there could be. It’s mind blowing. Literally.
What to eat for dinner?
