Well today's topic of discussion is "snap shots". From what I've seen today of other uploads - they are pretty darn good and it will be taking me abit of time to check them all out (it's a rainy day here in Montreal today)!

Today we've been asked to put a twist on the topic and focus on the good things diabetes has brought us. What awesome thing have you (or your child) done BECAUSE of diabetes? You can check out other postings at the link below which will be easier to cut and paste manually into a new page rather then clicking on it (hopefully you take the extra steps in order to get to the page I want to have linked - showing ALL the postings - otherwise if you click on this link - you won't see it - sigh - I'm a test guinea pig for Diabetes1.org) - http://www.blenza.com/linkies/links.php?owner=KarenBitterSweet&postid=04May2011a

1) How when I drink water – that it squirts out the end of my fingers due to multiple vampire pricks over the past 30+ years of blood testing. I am like a fountain.
3) Wondering what it’s like to be not be a diabetic – would it be any different then my life today as I play a game of poker at the casino each week?
4) Depression goes along with diabetes (am going through this at present – not fun at all).
5) Losing my eyesight – I wouldn’t be able to watch Glee or see Sprinkles the Diabetes Advocacy Unicorn!
8) What diabetic doesn’t dream of eating without having to think about blood sugar control and all the other crap we have to worry about? I mean – imagine pigging out on bacon? (this one is for you George).
9) Low blood sugars – I can function even at 2.0 mmol/l – but it’s not good at all for any of us diabetics to go low like this (does it kill off brain cells I wonder?).

Well, today is le deuxieme jour (second day) for the Blog Week topic – and the topic is “letter writing” to your condition, or whatever tickles your fancy (you can check out what the topics are for this week at this link – there are also “wild cards” for those of you that maybe stumped as to what to write – which I have to admit – today’s topic is abit difficult for me – but I’m giving it a whirl just for the heck of it while my brain is able to function).
Currently I hate feeling the way I have been for over a week now – life is such a B****. You have made me an unproductive member of society and I do not like feeling out of control. Diabetes rarely does this to me, and usually there is a reason for a low or high blood sugar but with you, I am a slave to the manufacturer of snot rags that make my nose raw and red along with not knowing when my strength will ebb to nothing but a limp noodle. What started off I thought as a simple cold after coming back from a holiday in Spain, has now blossomed into yet another week of depression with getting hit by you. I hate, loath, detest feeling drained and unable to think with you in my body and I want you to take a hike. You fool me into thinking I’m having a low blood sugar as well - with my feeling drained – and when I test my blood sugar - it is perfect – go figure that one out you evil little virus.
So, many thanks to my Facebook friends/Mummy that have encouraged me to get checked out despite my aversion to health professionals. I took the courage to go back to the same clinic that fixes me (this is same clinic that a GP misdiagnosed my eye problem back in November). I am hoping that today’s diagnosis of you – evil viral pneumonia, is what it actually is. I will be patient as I await better health and the ability to function (e.g. go on my motorcycle, sailboat, and the simple task of grocery shopping). I want my life back with my partner in life, diabetes by my side knowing it's the only one that gets up close and personal with me!
