After being woken up by my husband going to the toilet at 3am, I did a flash glucose reading so I wouldn’t have a data gap overnight. I discovered I had been hypo since about 11pm…
In the middle of gobbling down an afternoon snack with my kids,
I noticed this…
Have you ever felt like this Tiny Teddy with chocolate on the wrong side of him? It is clearly not his fault, but he has no choice but to be packaged up with a whole bunch of other Tiny Teddies who have chocolate on the right side of them.
Even after 27+ years, living with type 1 diabetes still makes me feel like that one Teddy.
It’s my daily battle. I rise to the occasion and I put up a damn good fight every single day unbeknownst to most people around me.
After not blogging for awhile, I thought I’d dive back into it with a Wordless Wednesday post… with a few words.
I took a picture of this sign at one of my local beaches.
Life has been very much like this lately. Many unexpected waves. Managing diabetes while fighting these unexpected waves has been one of the bigger challenges. So I’m doing my best to roll with it and just keep swimming.
After all… it’s not always about diabetes, is it?
I walk past this sign every day that I work in the city and I had the following thought for the first time in over six years…
Is this where people with diabetes are made?
I made myself laugh… then I got stared at… so I took a photo, put my head down and kept walking!
Being relatively new to the blogosphere, I find I am still playing catch-up. Today I am blogging my first ‘Wordless Wednesday’ post, only it’s Thursday here in Australia. (Shhhh, don’t tell anyone!) I don’t know much about ‘Wordless Wednesday’ except that it’s a day in the week where you post a picture on your blog. And that’s about it. I am a firm believer in the idea that a picture speaks a thousand words, and actions speak louder than words… so here it goes!
