Ok so it's more like where have I been. I'm sorry I haven't been around here since just before Thanksgiving. So much has happened in my little world that has kept me away from the computer and more into life events.
I'm back though, you all don't think you could get rid of me that easily do you? ha ha ha
Life has a way of throwing zingers our way. Since I was diagnosed at the very end of 2008, I'm still learning how to deal with the zingers as they come this way so I can keep a good handle on this little disease that latched onto me. I'm usually a very calm person, not a lot frazzles me, but, this past year has proven to take a toll on my very spirit with the loss of my Dad. The holidays came and there was a lot to deal with within my family and that proved to throw my stress level through the proverbial roof. I have a great support network around me, but, am very normal at keeping things to myself instead of letting it go and leaving it someplace else I guess.
But, I am back now. Things can only get easier and life will move along so I'm hopping back on the train. Since then, I have gained some of my weight lost back AUGH!! to say the least. Because of that (and I knew this would happen), my A1C jumped from 5.5 to 6.4. I guess the stress really did take its toll. Now its time to take care of me so I can take care of the zingers as they are thrown this way.
I hope you all are well, are finding ways to make your lives easier and taking good care of you. I have thought of a good deal of you a lot since I have been gone and have kept you in my prayers.
Hugs ~ Cheryl
ps.. I stopped in here about a month ago and saw a note about not squeezing your finger to get a blood drop out? Is that true? What are you all doing to retrieve enough to feed the vampire collectors?
