Random Thoughts on My Diabetes and This Blog


Advertisement

What follows in this week’s blog entry is — for the most part — a nonnarrative about a few things regarding my self-management. Often I write about what’s happened in the past week or so, but the last week has been rather uneventful in my diabetes[1] life. This morning as I took the dog on her hour-long walk, I tried but could not think of anything to write about this week. It’s a problem that doesn’t happen to me too often, because I can usually take a seemingly insignificant aspect of my life with diabetes and spin it out into a good thousand-word blog entry.

Today, however, it’s just not happening, in large part due to late nights with a new video game and some foggy-headed mornings. I keep wanting to write about my insulin pump[2] basal[3] pattern and how I try to hold it about 20 mg/dl lower than recommended, and why I do that, but I can’t find a way into that entry. Maybe next week?

So here are three bullet points for my blog this week:

He now gives quite a bit of thought to the condition, and to help him better understand his life as a person with diabetes, he writes about it.
