Life in LADA land

Living Philippians 1:6 with type 1.5 diabetes

Lessons learned

on June 22, 2012

If there’s one lesson I’ve learned from having diabetes, it’s that I cannot live life at breakneck speed without taking some sanity breaks.  That’s also true while traveling. Fortunately, on this trip so far, we have been able to pace ourselves pretty well. This morning, we slept in, picked up some food for the next few days at the conference and are now planted at a Panera catching up on computer tasks.  We have a busy afternoon, then a 2 hour drive, so this is a great way to start out the day.  The next three days are conference days, where the temptation is to go non-stop, since the speakers are all terrific and it’s going to be hard to say “no” to any of the sessions. Giving thanks for self-control and friends who will help me to make wise choices.

I am finally enjoying some lovely BG numbers – great night, good day so far, and hopefully nothing will sabotage it.  Yeah, right.  This is diabetes, not something predictable.  Giving thanks for the technology and medical support that helps me to manage this disease, for the most part.
