Sorry I have been away for so long. I guess I was going through a period of diabetes burn-out. I wanted to be perfect and I was hard on myself when I was not. The harder I was on myself, the worst my control got so I had to take a step back and re-focus. Yes I want to be in control but I had to realize that I am only human. There will be good days and bad days, ups and downs, highs and lows. That’s life. Now that I relaxed a bit, my numbers have come down.
I also had a really busy summer so far. I got a new puppy named midnight for my birthday and I went to the accident and emergency twice last month. Don’t start panicking… I was not the one in need of treatment, instead I was the worried family member because my mom hurt her ankle and had to get a cast. As one doctor put it – I was on the other side and very proud of it (my record continues…5 months and counting lol).
However, that is not what I wanted to share. I have big news! I am going to the states at the end of the month and I am so excited. How long will I stay? Well, that’s undetermined right now but I hope to make the best of it. I guess in a weird way I could say that I am going home but being raised in Barbados doesn’t make my trip feel that way. The scariest part of moving for any period of time is adjusting (ie packing, saying goodbye to friends and having to find a new Dr. WonderfulEndo).
Unfortunately all of this change means that I probably won’t be blogging quite as often but I will try to keep you updated as often as I can. Hope everyone is doing well and I will try to catch up on reading other great d-blogs.
