Dealing with my Diabetes - Day by Day

I am very new to all this community so everyone bear with me if I make mistakes. It is amazing how many of my non diabetic friends which is what most my friends are...until now. :-) think that I have it SO together regarding diabetes. Hmmm if only. Some days I do some days I do not. I am not to sure what kind of day today is. I have had an unexplained high, but I bolused for that and it is coming down. I have been housebound this week due to a sprained ankle, but am starting to put some weight on it slowly, slowly. I normally do a lot of walking. I am a Pet Sitter/ dog walker. I page says "Pet Care Specialist" boss suggested that. Between my dogs and the dogs I care for I can be walking 5 hours or more a day. This week I have not and it is driving me crazy. But this too shall pass. I am hoping by doing this blog it will help me deal with the daily difficulties that I have with this disease and to be reminded of the good days as well!

Welcome to TuDiabetes. I am pretty new here too. I hope your ankle feels better soon. I think it's great that you have a job that has you do so much walking.

Hi Sweeter! I love animals especially dogs. The one exercise I really enjoy is walking so this job/career is a really good match for me. I have been doing it for about 9 years now. My ankle is getting better thanks for asking. I downside to the job injury happened while walking a dog. :-)
