The first day of school

So today started off like the first day of school has for the past 12 years (NOT). Actually my 13th year of teaching started off at 4am with my cgm telling me I was low. I felt a bit shaky but really had to pee so I went to the bathroom first. On my way from the bathroom to my bg meter (about 8 steps) I managed to pass out.

"You are so right, BPG. Words can heal or hurt and we should use them with some thought. When I see a high number on my meter, I tell myself,"That's just data." When I see a wonderful number on the meter, I feel delight and…"

Words are a curious thing they can lift us up or pull us down. We can say something with good intention and it comes across the wrong way. This happens a lot when you aren't face to face with people and are communicating through messaging, emails, and yes the chat room.

A couple of days ago there was someone in chat that was feeling bad about a rather high bg number. Instead of getting suggestions on what they could do to help get it down or the much wanted "hey, that sucks"…

Monday, May 19th will be my 2nd Diaversary. I am celebrating it by having a "normal" Monday complete with work, running with co-workers and some students after work (if the rain holds off) and going to a 3 hour fiddle practice. I know it doesn't sound like much but it is nice to have be able to have a "normal" day :-) Cheers to all of you who work hard everyday to not let D kick you in the butt so you can have a "normal" day as well.
