A Temporary "Cure"
I cannot believe how long it has been since I last updated the blog. Needless to say, life after graduation has been full of ups & downs which luckily, has not included ups & downs in my blood sugar. Blogging about betes has honestly slipped my mind for most of the summer because it has been a none-issue. Worrying about jobs, money, apartments, grad school and the future has strangely helped me feel at ease about diabetes. I have realized that idleness...especially BOREDOM is counteractive to all my health goals. After tallying over 50 hours a week working for a summer program, I suddenly realized that my blood sugars were the best they had been in a loooooong time. Now the problem is that my busy period has stalled and I'm feeling anxious about my health and my upcoming doctors appointment. It seems that I always get messed up around the time of a doctors appointment and enter a strange, weird, period of change that messes up all my hard work! However, I am thankful for the moments where diabetes has been a distant thought lost in the back of my mind. I can't help but wonder...is busy-ness the cure? Does my pancreas respond well to an active, movin' & groovin' life? We'll see!
