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!

  • Labour Day weekend of good sailing / good weather (finally)


    So,  I'm shutting down my work part of my brain - closing down the PC - going into non-techno mode until Tuesday. We're heading off on the FatCat, our 25' Catalina early Saturday morning - to hit destinations west of us along the water way.  I've got lots of good food prepared to make life easy on the water - along with some junk food (chips, nuts, dark chocolate).  Hopefully we'll meet up with liked minded boaters along the way (we always manage to meet up with new people where ever we drop our anchor).

    Summer day

     

    Mike and I are so looking forward to a w/e of good weather for a change and just getting away from the stress of work life! Get some swimming in, good winds to sail in, relax with a Dark 'n' Stormy (rum/ginger beer/lime juice).  I'll be lowering down my basal rate to about 50% on my pump - as in relax/unwork mode I use less insulin - sweet!

    So to all of you celebrating Labour Day on this side of the world - you deserve it as we all work hard and don't you forget it!!!
