Hi Marie how you?
I am ok got into a routine at home with the girls now, Nura is showing signs of jealousy but loves her little sister to pieces, time is going so fast and I am finding it more enjoyable being a mother and breast feeding is not as bad second time around (it was so hard and scary with Nura because of hypos).
I am finding diabetes hard making me feel a bit useless and alone at times I guess I need to get in touch with my diabetic team.
Here is a picture of the girls, hope you like it. Xxxx

Started Yoga? - that makes me laugh, and if I were more hip I would just post LOL!

No, I haven't started. I have done yoga in the past, but not currently practicing, although I need to get back into it for sure. I actually have some cognitive dissonance because of the deeper philosophy behind yoga, and I am only interested in the exercise component. (Hmmmm ... could be a convenient excuse ...)

Anyway, the YogaO thing is just an acronym for You Only Go Around Once, which is just a reminder that I need to focus on doing the right things for myself everyday in order to create the basis for the day that (hopefully) will follow.

Thanks for asking - I do hope all is going well for you!

"This sounds like a nightmare! This guy should be reported. It's completely unacceptable for a pharmacist to deny your doctor's orders. What happened? I would transfer to another pharmacy if possible."
