Last night around 9:00PM I got out my Levemir pen and prepared for my biggest shot of basal for the day. Suddenly the dogs began to bark. This is a major distraction: so Dogs, What's up? We have a…Continue
Take a moment to enjoy our POETRY CLUB! http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/poetryclub
When my blood sugar is not Dr. Bernstein good, I can't sleep. I amuse myself by staring at the ceiling and writing a haiku. This one comes back to me time and again:
My mind is a-swirl,

Today's post for the Fourth Annual Diabetes Blog should be about My Blogs, what I would wish my medical team could see and what I hope they don't see. I would rather my favorite doctor wouldn't see this Mother's Day anecdote:

Of course I will also take note of my 19th diaversary on November 22, 1993. Yes, I was diagnosed at the age of 63 -- first as a…Continue
I haven't been participating in the D-Blog Week until today. Today I read Jane K's blog, in which she wrote: "As D-blog Week comes to a close I think the people who have done important things to create an interactive community for people with diabetes are heroes".
