Who among us can remember the days before our diabetes diagnosis? Back when we were “normal” — meaning we could eat and do as we pleased without a single thought involving glucose, carbohydrates, medications, or complications?
Nowadays we carry our meds and our monitoring devices. We look at food as a math equation. We have good days and bad days — temperate days, and days where we’re riding the Glucose Roller Coaster, which always makes one cranky, to say the least. We think a lot about improving our A1c results.
And all the while, the emotional roulette wheel keeps a’spinning. We never know just where it’s going to land.
At least that’s how I see it. Does any of this strike a chord? Read my October dLife column and let me know.
