I have to report that  I have been feeling so good.. I do not want to jinx myself, but I have been doing well.  My goal for myself is to live everyday the best I can.  I want to live this way in my everyday life, not just my diabetes life.  I have vowed to […]

There is an aspect of what ifs and precautions that we live with as diabetics.  Of course what we eat, the exercise we get the injections and so on.  To me personally,  there is one thing specifically that I am very mindful of… My feet.  I need them to stay healthy and happy! Of course […]

I am a foodie.  I love so many different foods.  My favorites are Spanish tapas, any kind of fresh salad, and I love turkish dishes.  Many years ago while I was working retail in the Winter Park, Florida area I came across an amazing Turkish spot called Bosphorus.  It was so delicous and I fell […]

Hello all.  I have not posted in a bit, I have been in a little funk.  I have been feeling just a little down and stressed.  I have taken just a little break from cell phone, blogging, a little time out.  As I  sit here thinking, “I do not want to be Debbie Downer”.  I […]

After so many years of diabetes I have gone through numerous doctors, I believe my count is at five.   At times, I felt as if my doctors weren’t really listening, or caring.  I felt like I was just a number on a chart that they glanced down  at a second before they entered the […]

I have to admit I love chips.  They are my weakness.  I mean I can finish a bag in two days kind of weakness, maybe a bag in a couple hours. We are talking, a slap your hand away if you want a chip kind of weakness.  I have an obsession with Doritos, Cheetos, and […]

Phew! I made it through the appointment!!! And it really was not as horrible as I expected.  It is quite lengthy process of waiting and tests, but all in all not SO bad. My husband and I arrived at the appointment, and I had like 1,000 butterflies in my stomach.  I had thoughts of just […]

So I am ready and willing to share something so personal to me  right now.  Not many people know.  A little less than a year ago I was having an annual eye exam.  Diabetics need to go yearly due to complications that can arise.  This comes with being diabetic, in the back of our minds […]
