I think there are plenty of great ideas out there. Coming from so many different sources – books I read (or listen to), blog entries and comments, medical professionals or just plain intuition and luck.
The challenge comes in putting those ideas into practice in your everyday life.
An example. I see a therapist every [...]Continue Reading →
That is what the “target” BG range is like – landing on an aircraft carrier… in a storm… at night!
The “target” BG range is so narrow, compared to falling short (and crashing right into the aircraft carrier, sinking the ship in the process) or overshooting the strip (and falling somewhere in the sea of [...]Continue Reading →
Very quick post -
I tested my blood sugar at 11:11 am and it was 111.
Fun with numbers anyone? I think I’m going to go out and buy a couple lotto tickets, using my last few blood sugars to pick the winning numbers!Continue Reading →
So I just noticed that my quarterly endo appointment is coming up again.
Damn. It feels like just yesterday when I went in there and was thrown into a tailspin with a higher than expected A1C. I’ve been trying to get my head on straight ever since. And now I realize that it’s [...]Continue Reading →
Motivation that would be.

I feel that I am pretty tuned in to my body. I have been forced to pay attention to the little signals my body sends, that perhaps others can easily ignore.
Most of the time I can tell when I’m dehydrated. I can tell when I’m a bit low, and I can usually tell when [...]Continue Reading →
My fight is all mental.
If I can be in a good place psychologically, I can manage my diabetes.
Please note, I chose the word “manage” rather than “control”. There is no such thing as “control” with diabetes, in my humble opinion.
I have been slowly working my way through “The Physician [...]Continue Reading →
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes for my area was held Saturday at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN (very near Minneapolis).
Thanks to many generous friends and family I was able to raise a grand total of $1175 in donations. I think that is just wonderful. I never expected that I [...]Continue Reading →
