Interruption.

I don’t care what it is you are doing, but if you have to stop to deal with a low blood sugar, you have been interrupted.

Even if I’m happily doing nothing, and get interrupted, it bothers me. What was I doing? Nothing!! But it still bothers me.

Worse though, is when I am [...]

The stubborn low.

For whatever reason (insulin on board, delayed digestion, etc.) you treat a low that just keeps going lower.

You know how you feel when you’re low, and you treat it, then wait a bit.

I wanted to let everyone know what the actual prizes were for our contest winners.

Our lucky winners were Caro from Diabetes Wise, and Kerri from Six Until Me.

Getting a prize to Caro was interesting, because she’s overseas. I really wanted to get her [...]

Ahhh, the snow has melted, the temperatures are creeping up, we’ve had some rainstorms, I heard someone mowing their lawn already. Yes, spring is here.

You’ll never guess what I found near the side door of my house the other day. See if you can pick it out of this picture:

I tried another new thing at lunch today!

When I get the thought in my head to try a new food, it’s always a pretty risky maneuver. I mean, what if I buy this thing, and don’t like it, and then am hungry for the rest of the afternoon?
