Re: [IP] Bad A1C, the doc says I will be referred to diabetes education-Give me some healthy habits!!!!!!

I have an idea that I hope many will join in on.

As an 11 year old prepubescent girl, I didn't take my diabetes diagnosis 
very well, and acted accordingly-including starting a "Why I hate diabetes" 
journal.  :(

Now, 20 years later, pumping and in good control, I have a new journal, 
where I write down the great things that control means to me..
"I woke up this morning and felt like getting out of bed instead of feeling 
like I hadn't slept a wink"  (in reference to my first 2 mornings in a row 
with BG under 180.)

Anyone who is interested, let's help this fellow pumper (and really, 
everyone that reads these posts-who of us couldn't use a boost every once in 
awhile??) by writing one thing that good control means to you.

I know I'm on the verge of sounding like a self help program, but it's been 
a few weeks since I've thrown my meter across the room, so I'm trying to 
keep up the momentum..
