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.

Falling behind.

I've been falling a little bit behind this week. I had full intentions of taking pictures of my last grocery haul, because I was so proud of myself for staying within my new budgetary guidelines (#win). But life got busy and I ended up eating a good portion of those groceries before I got around to taking a picture of them (#fail). So I guess I could take a picture of my now 1/2 eaten groceries...or I could just wait until the next grocery haul and try again.

I've been falling behind on other things, 'betes included. It's high time I put my CGM back on. It's been off since June, since I was taking acetaminophen medication related to the spinal cord injury and it interferes with the CGM. Being off the CGM has made it easier for me to ignore my diabetes. No alarms going off to notify me of blood sugar doom. Ironically, a friend of mine (also T1) called me last night and was saying how off track she's been with her diabetes for the last 6 months. I'm worried about her, because her diabetes is really out of control and she is having complications as a result (both eye and limb neuropathy) and so did my best to try to motivate her back into taking care of herself, and in the process I ended up re-motivating myself.

Tonight I have such a crazy migraine headache that it's hard for me to focus on any one thing for very long. I joined the DSMA chat on Twitter tonight, but didn't contribute much because of the headache. Could be triggered from allergies or from the spinal cord stuff, not sure. I'm going to think positive that when I wake up tomorrow it will be gone. Until then, I'll keep this entry short and go to bed.
