Diabetes Sucks

July 4th - a time to feel patriotic and have a good time - RIGHT? It seems that the days which are supposed to be fun and filled with family, friends and great food seem to come off kind of depressing.

Diabetes sucks.

Now after dinner I am just worn out. Guess I should take 'r easy to make sure the sugar is all in-check!
