Diabetes Can Kiss My Arse!

....Though, its definitely kicking my arse at the moment! And so is this flu. Its kind of a double edge sword. The flu is causing my blood sugar to sky rocket and my blood sugar being up is making it harder for my body to fight this off. At times I do consider having type 1 diabetes to be a blessing in disguise. Because my body has been through so much already and because its pretty much essential for any diabetics survival, I can ready my body really well. And a raise in blood sugar for no apparent reason is almost always an indicator of illness or infection. So, I did have some advanced warning and popped some Airborne. Though it didn't work, the Vitamin C in it certainly won't hurt. And I have to pick up a B-12 shot tomorrow (I get them monthly) at the pharmacy, so hopefully that'll help fight this off as well. Can I still be in denial though? Its a much happier place in La-La Land right now. I do not have the flue... I do not have the flu... I do not have the flu...

Oh, and speaking of diabetes..... they do walks here and nationallyfor the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). I've done the walks before and they're always fun and very inspiring. Unfortunately, I can't get out of work this year to do it, but I encourage everyone who reads this to please go to www.jdrf.org and look for a walk in your area and then register to walk. Its for a great cause!

I just found your blog from MckMama's, and I think you are off to a good start! I, too, have Type 1 Diabetes, and I am always interested in what others have to say about it! Also, your photography is gorgeous.
