I’ve talked my boss into letting me split my late shifts twice a week which allows me to go play basketball at the YMCA over lunch, and I’ve also taken a couple of flatwater kayaking lessons and I’m planning on doing that a couple times a week.

If only I had nothing else to do… Right? Wrong – but anyways.
I sometimes feel like there are so many things that we deal with that sometimes my diabetes takes a back seat and I don’t give it the attention I need to in order to achieve better control. I mean, life gets [...]Continue Reading →
