I'm getting better. My levels are still a tad on the high side. Dr says it is because I am in pain right now. I guess when pain levels go down BG will follow.

Yep, it is funny how so many things spike our levels. Pain is a big one. Our bodies just do what comes natural, we get to peek inside because we are monotoring all the time. We learn so much about how our bodies work with this disease. Amazing.

This is so true. I know when I am gaining better contorl of my levels, I feel like I can do anything. I can walk for miles, resist temptation. BUT, when I misstep and make bad choices, I get so out of wack. I get moody, and want to eat whatever I want. Oh, and forget exercise. That is never a good place to be.

Right now, I am feeling good. My numbers are dropping pretty steady and I feel that I am doing what I can to control my diabetes. Tomorrow...well that could be a different story. LOL

well my levels are fine right now so I feel good.I found out recently I had diabetes and I'm only 13 so I was a bit depressed back then but I found out about a lot of other people who are diabetes and I've been keeping a watch on my levels and I'm getting use to it

Wow, you are only 13. That is great that you are taking it on. I know it must seem not too fair sometimes, but there is so much that you can do. I look at the Jonas Brothers (sorry, I don't know which one is the one with diabetes) But they talk about it, share it with people, educate and that must be a bit of an inspiration to young people like you. Your folks must be very proud of you.
