The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes! Whoo! Whoo!

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed back in the early 60's as a child.  I am living in Montreal, Canada and enjoy scribbling about diabetes from time to time. I’ve had my ups / downs just like any person would experience with going through life - diabetic or not.  My motto in life?  Diabetes does not control me – I control it!! 

You can find more posts/discussions at my Facebook page called "The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes" and also on Twitter under the name of FatCatAnna.  Feel free to follow me at both places or send me a private message!

  • Life is Good - Hockey - Nutella - Insulin!

    I was just about to post on my Facebook page with a follow up to my  sweaty dripping wakeup call at 0202 (see below) – then thought – ahhh heck – why not post another entertaining #dblog –

    As I dealt with a #BGnow of 1.8/30 in the wee hours of the morning - and scooped into an imitator Nutella - I came across this great site. I now have more info into the pros/cons of hazelnut chocolate spreads (shoulda gone for the PB route after eating sweet stuff to bring myself out of this low). Back to testing again - to see if I can lay my head down to sleep for a few more zzzzz's before getting up for work (and hockey game - go Sweden - go Canada)

    I decided that “what the heck” - LIFE IS GOOD – Canada won against Sweden (now – tell me – who did NOT get up early today – even out in the western sector of Canada – that is 12 hours behind – THEY WERE UP!!) #goCanadago

    Canadians win Gold in hockey

    On top of it all – despite how some of you may react to this ... my #BGnow reading – taken AFTER the hockey game ended (who has time to test???) – had spiked all to heck at *** 17.4 / 313 *** with my inhaling of the hazelnut spread - lick lick lick (inferior to the one I’d bought from Cedar last year by a long shot – which lead me to the original post on Facebook with reading the #blog from veggirlrd.com ).  Have ou ever seen those huge jars of Nutella at Costco?  Have you ever bought one yourself? LOL

    Wait - I'm getting off track here (nuts do this to you - excitement of hockey game win) ....  maybe my #BGnow went up as I was actually playing the hockey game alongside the team members??  Ya know what can happen when we do exercise – and how our #BGnow spikes up ( you can view ongoing discussion here at Diabetes1.org on that subject )

    The conclusion to this post is - with the use of insulin – lovely rapid stuff we have available today – as a professional human dart board (back to using the i-port again and sometimes bad diabetic when having a hypo and goes overboard with correcting) – I am now happily coming down to regular programming with #BGnow – along with having had an espresso with a bit of cream in it.

    LIFE IS GOOD (it all depends on how you lick LOOK at it!!!)
