I am NOT a doctor, dietician or expert. Do I know everything there is to know about diabetes? Heck no, but I do know what it’s like to live with it.

Thoughts on Thanksgiving
Another holiday has come and
gone.Another day filled with family,
laughter, nostalgia and…food.I could
write about what I did that was good, or bad.I could feel remorse for something eaten that wasn’t in “my plan”.I could beat my chest and crow about “good numbers”.I could weep out of frustration because food
has become so complicated.But I won’t.
I won’t say that diabetes didn’t sit next to me at the
table, but it was quiet for a change.It’s
not that I ignored my condition.It’s
not that I didn’t care to take care of myself.It was just so much more important to enjoy the time with my family that
was present.It was good to reflect on
something other than food.I think it’s
important for all of us to do that now and then.We spend too much time worrying about what we’re
eating and how much we’re moving.It’s
ok to have a holiday now and then.I had
a full week spent not following my usual routine.Now it’s time to get back to it and I feel
refreshed. I’m ready to move forward. I
hope you all have the same feeling.
