About Me

My photo
I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

These were my A1C results from today! I wasn't sure what to expect when I came into the doctor's office today. You never feel like you are doing as good of a job managing it as you could be. Diabetes is a beat-yourself-up disease. It's a constant source of self-scolding, negative self-talk and feeling guilty for enjoying food. Diabetes is a disease where effort rarely equals results. It's just nice to see that little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!


  1. Way to go!!!! That's an awesome number.

  2. YAY and Congrats!!! I agree, it's nice when the D throws us a bone occasionally!

  3. Thanks, everyone, for your kind encouragement!
