Stop Beating Yourself Up

January 12, 2015


We all do it.  “If only I had done this.” “If only I had done that.”  “I should have…”  “I will never do that again (repeat 4 times).”  “How could I have been so…”  You know. And I know that sometimes we beat ourselves up over experiences in our lives.  The negative thoughts and feelings of […]

Go With the Flow

January 9, 2015


Let me start off by saying that it is not always easy living with diabetes.  I admit it. Diabetes can be challenging.  I have taken a ride in an ambulance due to low blood sugar on two occasions (once when pregnant).  I have had to stop mid run to eat something sugary like candy corn […]

Persevering on “bad” days

March 25, 2013


“Bad”. Probably should not use that word.  I try to use “challenging” so it does not sound so negative.  But today, I want to use “bad”.  Just one of those days.  One thing after another.  Some things diabetes related.  Some not. So what to do?  Wait… You are probably wondering what is so “bad”.  Let […]

I Am Diabetic. I Am Different.

July 20, 2011


I am a diabetic, and I am different. Different= unlike in nature, form, or quality; novel and unique. (Webster’s Dictionary) I will take the “novel and unique”.  Diabetes has had an impact on my life.  Some good stuff and some challenging stuff.  But either way, it has made me realize that we are all novel […]
