I am starting to work hard at getting back on track after a long case of diabetes burnout coupled with diabulimia. It's definitely not easy... I had an appointment with my CDE this morning, so with…Continue
First of all, please don't judge...So lately I've been obsessing about my weight. A few weeks ago I cut out junk food and have been eating a mostly all natural diet of fresh fruits, veggies, lean…Continue
I'm just about to hit the 5 year mark from diagnosis and for some reason I've been really overwhelmed and upset about having Diabetes lately. I've never been this upset about it before. I feel very…Continue
I've decided that blogging again might make my road to recovery a little easier. It provides me with an outlet to express my thoughts, so I started a brand new blog.

So I've decided to get back in to writing blogs and connecting with beets people via the world wide web because I've been having a hard time lately. None of my friends and family exactly know what I'm going through, so it's hard for them to help. I think it would be beneficial to talk to you guys, since you know what it's like.
