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!

    Diabetes Blog Week May 10-16

    Well, I'm one of about 130 PWD (people with diabetes) bloggers that are particpating in Karen's project at her website Bitter-Sweet (appropriate name for what we go through - don't you think?).  I'm abit late in the game as I don't Twitter as much as I'd like to and only noticed this today when I went online.  I saw a few people putting #DiabetesBlogWeek in their Tweet's and I discovered what it was all about.  I wrote to Karen saying I wish I'd known earlier, and that I had a few nonUS friends who blog that I thought might be interested at contributing to her cause.  Karen tweeted back to me saying "You can still join #DiabetesBlogWeek if you want to - it's not too late! Just let me know and I'll add you to the list. :)". 

    So, come on, what are you (we/I) waiting for - let's all get blogging.   Never blogged before?  It's simple, just let your thoughts flow out of your fingertips.  Check out Karen's simple instructions at her website in the link I've posted above. 

    Happy blogging!  Off I go to see what sprouts from my BG (blood glucose) pricked fingertips (it's not really that bad - remember - always prick with the vampire lancet on the SIDES of your fingertips - less nerve endings on the sides).
