Who among us can remember the days before our diabetes diagnosis?  Back when we were "normal" -- meaning we could eat and do as we pleased without a single thought involving glucose, carbohydrates, medications, or complications?

Emotion_3Nowadays we carry our meds and our monitoring devices.  We look at food as a math equation.  We have good days and bad days -- temperate days, and days where we're riding the Glucose Roller Coaster, which always makes one cranky, to say the least.  We think a lot about improving our A1c results. 

And all the while, the emotional roulette wheel keeps a'spinning.  We never know just where it's going to land. 

At least that's how I see it.  Does any of this strike a chord?  Read my October dLife column and let me know.
