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!

  • The Easter Bunny is NOT evil ...

      Okay - I think in the beginning I thought of the Easter Bunny as looking like the character from Donnie Darko - but I'm thinking of changing my mind of that vision now. 

      Easter Sunday arrived - hippity hop, hippity hop - I remembered that I had hidden a few more Easter goodies (we already consumed the Easter Egg "designer" jelly beans the day before).  For some reason - I think what I should be calling "evil" is my insulin pump - since I don't think I've ever maintained such level BG's before with munching away on sweet treats that most diabetics would run to the hills screaming - "no, no, no!!!!".  So, off I went to bring out Mr. Toffee and Mr. Fluffy chocolate bunnies.  I religiously broke off an ear from Mr. Fluffy (white "chocolate") - weighed out the portion - did the calculations of how many carbs for the weight of the chocolate. This took a few extra minutes of drooling as I got the formula abit wrong - but in the end and after a few head banging episodes (I was never good at math at school) - BINGO - results.  So, abit of insulin (bolus) and I ate Mr. Fluffy's ear.  Yummy.  Then I had abit of Mr. Toffee's ear - and winged it with the calculations as I seem to be getting the hand of how much to break off. Double yummy.

    Mr. Fluffy

      Anyway, I am glad to say that with some of the bits of the two nice bunnies - my BG's stayed at pretty even keel of around 5 mmol/L (90 mg/dL) - and waking up this morning - I was slightly lower then I like to be at 3.2 mmol/L (57 mg/dL) - but abit of espresso along with some toast / jam / slice of cheese - I'm all set for the day. 

      Now, the next question is - to keep myself busy enough - so I don't hear Mr. Toffee and Mr. Fluffy calling me to nibble on another part of them.  I must be good - and wait until Mike gets home from work.  Wish me luck!
