2009 has been a year where I’ve been rather dominated by diabetes. I’ve been heavily involved in a diabetes support forum, writing diabetes-related poetry and articles here and elsewhere, and of course, dealing with the condition itself day-by-day. I wouldn’t say it has been controlling me, but I think that, in the coming year I need to find a better balance and look for more non-diabetes related activities and interests. I think it has been fairly inevitable that my first full year with the condition has meant a large proportion of my time has been dedicated to understanding it and learning all I can about its past, present and future, but next year I am back in charge!

Bring on the New Year, I can’t wait!
So give a resounding cheer!
I won’t hold back or hesitate,
And I won’t drink too much beer!

Last year my pancreas decided to end
It’s role in my glucose control…
Well, my wiggly organ friend,
Here’s one for your millimoles!

You thought that by this time that I
Would weep and mourn your loss,
But you were wrong and that is why
In THIS body I’m the boss!

I’ll tell you now that only when
You work like days of yore,
Why, then we’ll be good friends again –
In fact I’ll love you more!

Next year will be the year for ME,
I’ll have the upper hand!
Not in the thrall of devil ‘D’
But alive and feeling grand!
