24 hours ago, I was pacing the floors in my house, concerned and anxious about what my a1c would be. Today, I found out. After much work, I was concerned that it was going to go up from my previous 7.8. That would not have been good. But, it went down, 7.2!!!! I am so happy. I worked so hard, I have been adjusting my diet and exercising and changing insulin rates and it all paid off. I am so proud of myself. I would like to gloat for minute to share with you, my diabetic friend how I achieved success and how you can too. I would like to inspire others. It takes a lot of work and sometimes you may want to give up, but you must keep pushing. Good luck.
