Another Day at Church

LDSWell N and I went to Church today, we actually arrived early so had time to talk with a few people before things got started. Feels like of strange being there early instead of semi late – but feels good as well, so two sides of the coin.

Service went well enough, had a speaker who talked about something or other, as in he talked and from what I saw around me people dozed off or stopped paying attention, the few who where no idea. My attention was all over the place at times and I just couldn’t keep my attention on him that well so I ended up looking around me at those around me so see their reactions, and to see a few people actually dozing off I actually found funny and strange, but if they where doing this (and they where not elderly, buy those in the late teens, early 20s) then it must have been as boring to hear as my brain was telling me it was to try and listen to or something.

Changes – Day 4 – #DiabetesBlogWeek

Diabetes Blog Week - IconWell its Day 4 of the Diabetes Blog Week and todays topic is…

Today let’s talk about changes, in one of two ways. Either tell us what you’d most like to see change about diabetes, in any way. This can be management tools, devices, medications, people’s perceptions, your own feelings – anything at all that you feel could use changing. OR reflect back on some changes you or your loved one has seen or been through since being diagnosed with diabetes. Were they expected or did they surprise you? – Bitter-Sweet Diabetes

Clean it Out – Day 3 – #DiabetesBlogWeek

Diabetes Blog Week - IconWell its Day 3 of the Diabetes Blog Week and todays topic is…

Yesterday we kept stuff in, so today let’s clear stuff out. What is in your diabetic closet that needs to be cleaned out? This can be an actual physical belonging, or it can be something you’re mentally or emotionally hanging on to. Why are you keeping it and why do you need to get rid of it? (Thank you Rick of RA Diabetes for this topic suggestion.) – Bitter-Sweet Diabetes

Trying to think, supply wise there is nothing that needs to be cleaned out I don’t have much extra in the way of supplies to start with, certainly not enough to last more then a month at a time unfortunately (though lancet wise ya those I have enough for a year the way I tend to change my lancets, aim for once a day reality is every other day they get changed).

Insulin wise that is a month to month deal (some months I wonder if I’ll be able to afford to get my script or not or will I have to try and make what I do have last longer until I can figure out where I’ll get the funds to pay for it from (not a good feeling on any level as many well know).

Meter’s I’ve got my primary and a couple back ups that I keep around to use as necessary the other’s have gotten donated as they years have gone by because I upgraded and didn’t need the older version any longer (I try to keep at least three back up’s because that means I can keep one on me at all times that works.

Other wise I can’t think of anything diabetic related that emotionally I need to work on, though I am sure there is something that is related that is still in the back of my mind or something that only comes out in my dreams and fads when I wake up, because something has to be there to make my sleep so toss and turn at times.

Well post tomorrow take care everyone!
