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.

And THIS is why I go to the bakery instead.

I've got real issues when it comes to dessert. There's just no limit to how much I can eat. I rarely make desserts anymore, because I recognize that I have NO self discipline when it comes to them. Sugar is like crack to me. I'm happy when I eat it, and I'm willing to sacrifice a lot to have it (blood sugar, weight).

That's why I usually go to the gluten free bakery and buy ONE item. One brownie. Or one cupcake. Because if I have a whole pan sitting in my house, I won't ration them out; I'll eat a whole bunch in one day and hate myself. I'm eating a brownie right now as I type this, even though it's 10:30pm and I know my overnight blood sugars are going to pay big time. Because one of two things are going to happen- either I've over-bolused and I'm going to be low overnight (and get no sleep ala CGM alarms), or I've under-bolused and the exact opposite is going to happen. And then I'm going to step on the scale in the morning and say self-demeaning things to myself.

I sort of hate myself right now for having no self control.

  1. hello, would like to hear more from you. my 14 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 at 5 years of age and recently with grave's disease. very rare in under 20 year old's. there i much reason to believe that ambient radiation from cell phones and cell towers as well as wi fi is destroying our immune systems and causing the dramatic rise in auto immune diseases. in the last 20 years autism has risen 600% and that is when cell phones came on the scene. now it is 1 in 88 new borns. that is amazing. good luck and good to hear of your positive attitude. it can be catching and inspirational for others. check my website: www.wirelesswatchblog.org
