November is diabetes awareness month, so now is the time to get out there and raise awareness. If you aren't sure what to do you can always participate in the Big Blue Test. It is an easy way to show support and help a great cause. You can find more information about it here:

In April the doctor put me on insulin while I was in the hospital for bypass surgery. As of the end of August 2013 I am no longer taking any meds for diabetes. The only thing I am taking is for my blood pressure and I may come of that in April 2014. I went back to truck driving 24 September! Talk about glad to be out of the house!! Oh, I weighed in at 210 pounds when I had surgery and now my weight ranges from 180 to 185. I still watch what and when I eat and walk as much as possible. I try to do a 12 hour fast everyday and that seems to help keep my blood sugar at a 'normal' level. Since surgery I am unable to eat as much as I used to. I guess tha's a good thing. Every one take care out there…
