Perfect Timing

What’s this? An envelope?




Oh man, now I am really excited!




I have been really down the past few days and this really made me feel so much better. Knowing how much this community looks out for one another and cares about one another is just amazing. It’s support I would have never thought I could find on a computer through the internet.

So Bill, at 1 Happy Diabetic, you are helping to make me a happy diabetic and I cannot tell you how much I needed this lift.

And as far as your note goes, the only thing better than the scent of yummy bacon would be enjoying a few strips with my East Coast Bro!

Thank you Bill!


Is That Snow?

No. It's just the mega flake I have become.

One thing I will say is I am still keeping up with the Lent Loser thing but my diabetes stuff has just been unacceptable.

First, I stopped taking Symlin because of the nausea. I stopped this several weeks ago and just took an injection right before typing this. Hopefully I won't get sick on my keyboard. Yuck.

Second, the CGMS. I tried again after my little break and had another sensor telling me I was 42 all day long. Need I say more?

The Diabetes 365 project I have totally flaked on. I was taking pictures everyday in fact, I have a bunch I never uploaded but I just gave up. I give up a lot. 

I have cancelled 2 appointments with my neurologist, 1 with my endo (the old one), still have not really actively looked for a new endo, skipped out on a diabetes mentor training that I was so excited about but I talked myself out of doing. 

I give up a lot.

I am realizing more and more that I am the worst motivator, and advocate for me. For George. I assume I cannot do anything and am my own worst enemy. 

This post went from a quick rant to a deeper realization as these words flow from my fingers. 

Why do I do this? Should I explore this? Will I? Probably not since I can talk myself into and out of something faster than you can say Bacon Wrapped Bacon. 

Just when I think I am getting my shit together I fall apart.

Can I blame diabetes?

I don't think so.


A Chapter Ends

Back in August of 2007 I became an official writer.

Well that was what it felt like although I am sure many would disagree, including me. But that summer marked the beginning of Blogabetes on dLife and I was lucky enough to be asked to be one of the contributing writers there.

Between The B.A.D. Blog and Blogabetes pretty much everything that popped into my head went into a post somewhere. It was good to have two different places to share but also it was a struggle sometimes with family, work, and life in general needing attention. Duh.

So with that, as of today, I am no longer a blogger at Blogabetes.

That was a lot harder to type than I thought I would be. Wow.

Anyhow, I know that with my new position at work time will be required of me that was not before and I would hate to either not post, or write something that I am not proud of. I cannot do that and If I cannot contribute then I need to step away.

And that is what I have done.

To all of you Blogabetes writers and the dLife crew, I will miss being a part of the team and to any of you who enjoyed reading my posts there, thank you so much. I hope I can still put out posts like that here but it is going to take some time to figure out this new part of my life and find a balance that will work.

If you don’t know what Blogabetes is, you should check it out because there are some GREAT people writing there.

Take care Blogabetes, and thanks for the awesome chapter in my life!


You Tube Tuesday #160

I um, I am not sure what to say about this. It is bizarre and yet I could not shut it off. What is going on here?

Enjoy? LOL


I'm Gone

Today is a busy day. I am working outside of the office all day and after the lousy nights sleep I got, this is going to be a difficult day. 

So yes. The Ninja is gone for today. See you all later.
