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.

We spend several hours drinking ginger ale, eating Club […]

Diabetic Moms

May 8, 2011


Happy Mother’s Day to all the diabetic (and non diabetic) moms out there.  Having children is the most amazing gift I could ever have received.  Getting pregnant for me was no easy task.  It took five years for me to finally get pregnant with my oldest daughter.  I did IUIs, accupuncture, herbs, you name it, […]
