Welcome to my blog! I’m going to share my experiences with Type 2 Diabetes. In my opinion, diabetes is an art and not a science; hence most everything comes by way or trial and error. Before posting an entry, I do an extensive research on the subject. I also started writing about things that happen every day and how I learned to handle them independently; I do this mostly on my other blog, websaladbar.
This post is intended for those who understand what it takes to live with diabetes or at least have some compassion. I am aware that not everyone is capable of that. I’ve seen plenty of infographics on the net screaming about things like, John ate 48 candies out of 54 and now he has diabetes. The others pull a similar stunt about overweight folks. Aside from zero credibility, these postings are full of an attitude. In case of John and candy, nothing can be further from the truth. There is no link between increased sugar consumption and developing diabetes.
I’m a mother of two wonderful daughters; both have graduated from OSU and live in Columbus, Ohio. I live in the Midwest; I am retired and spend my time writing blogs, tinkering with my computer, browsing the net, of course chores and staying physically active. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes a few months ago. The news of T2D came as a shock, initially I was in denial but now I’m at peace with it and am trying to do the right things to keep my BG levels at bay. My last A1C level was 6.2, down from 6.4. I am currently neither on insulin nor on any diabetic meds.
