First I like to say thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. With the help of my wife she had reminded me of the man she fell in love with. I've always looked at the positive things in all situations. Like my mom has always told me : take your problems and look at yourself and remember that no matter how small, bad or down you feel, there is always some who has it worse. So pick yourself up and get over your self pitty party and get on with your day. Sometimes I need a little reminder and now that I've preaching that to my wife last 10 years or so she sometimes has opportunity to return the advice to me. I know in my last blog I sounded a little on the down side, but thats not the case. I do have bad days especially when I want to eat the way I normally do and stuff my face. But things are different now. I'm moving towards a positive direction with my diabetes along with no longer telling my daughter that daddy's sick. I just expain to her that we need to eat well and take care of our selfs.

As for today I'm glad that everyone had some good comments from my last blog and that I may not always get a chance to write in here but I will try as much as I can. It really helps me.

Thanks for listening (reading)

Being positive

O, I am so glad I got to read this today. I've had this blue funk all around me for about two months. Couldn't tell you why, just didn't feel like anything was worth anything. But reading your blog today, made sense, and I think, no I know that I have to pick myself up and go for broke. All I have to lose is being sad, and depressed and all I have to gain is well everything. Thanks for sharing. Your mom was a wise woman.

I'm so glad you feel better. I guess we all have our days of playing the violin. It's not a fun disease, is it.
