Click over to my blog for the full text and lots of posts from yesterday.



When I've been outside in 90+ weather for more than a few hours I really worry about the stability of my insulin, especially the stuff that is in the infusion tubing.

This was a fun week. I didn't go to the gym once, I didn't do anything exciting but everything was out of the ordinary.
