Alright, I started this new job that has increased my workload and stress two-fold. And, oh, I have to shove in eating (or not eat) just to maintain. I know it's terrible! I've barely been on TuDiabetes! What the heck!?! Anyway, the weight I fought to lose has slowly crept a bit back and I do realize I've been neglecting myself. I've also done a bit of traveling and you know how the food is when you travel- and the hours are a little crazy. Yes, I do the testing and the shots and everything- I just have to MAKE time right now. It's pretty dang sad but I PLAN TO RIGHT THE SHIP AND GET BACK ON COURSE! No more late nights working, hurried lunches, etc. Anyway, had to come clean with my blog here because A- I realize it, B- don't like it, C- must stop it! I gotta get that work/life/diabetes balance back! Wish me luck!

hi dana,
i don't think anyone has an easy time trying to get life/work/diabetes to toe the line. i had to give up the work part, so i only have work/life and it's a struggle. seems that now that i don't work "life" decided it could take over the work time. and they get mad when i say not today. i need me time.
if anyone can do it i know you can. you did it before. congrats on the new job.
