Sunday Update 12/16/12

I’ve put my writing on hold until the next round. I’m spending this time reading my literature about diabetes and trying to come to terms with the fact that this is going to be my life from now on. Testing my blood sugar twice a day is going to be a challenge for a writer, since I’m sticking my fingers. However, they aren’t really as sore as I thought they would be. Maybe it won’t be too much of an issue. I’ve had two doses of my medicine (it’s once a day), and my blood sugar is down some, but not as much as I would like. Maybe it takes a little while. I think my medicine is the kind that actually makes the pancreas produce more insulin. I need to read up on it. I’m also on blood pressure medicine. 😦

I’m an optimist by nature, so I’m NOT going to let this get me down. I just need to take care of it. And I promise there won’t be numerous blog posts on diabetes and how it’s affecting me. No one wants to hear all that. Just maybe a mention every once in a while to let everyone know what’s going on.

So, how has YOUR writing been going? I’m still interested in hearing about you. 🙂
