I need about 8000 more words and I'll hit the finishing line - which I can do so long as I crack on, so I won't be here too long this morning. Weekly meal plan, grocery list, knee therapy, and two - count 'em, TWO - viewings of the house over the weekend. Who goes house-hunting in December? lol...
First things first: I start my days with coffee and 'the news.' I ramble across the internet, dipping into everything from real news (NY Times, BBC, CNN) to what I call fluff news (MSN, Yahoo, Daily Mail). Sometimes you can find clinkers in the gold mines (even the high-toned news sources aren't above tweaking a headline to garner more viewers), and sometimes you find nuggets in the slush pile. Case in point, the following--
Well by golly. Mary Tyler Moore has been omitted from the list, and Paula Deen's announcement was all over the news last year (or was it earlier this year?) but there are some people on the list I wasn't aware have diabetes.
Thinks me, I'm in good company.
And for what it's worth on the flurry of debate about Drew Carey's so-called 'cure'? I know just what he means: I've gone from gobs of medications and being on the brink of injections to medication-free / lifestyle controlled. It may not always be that way, probably won't always be that way. Diabetes has a nasty way of showing up despite good self-care, the right foods, plenty of exercise. Age and heredity usually catch up sooner or later. Eh. I'll cross the bridge when I come to it.
But in the meantime, call it cured, call it in remission, call it whatever label you like - lifestyle controlled is a good thing. Hard to do, hard to maintain - still checking that ol' BG each and ever' mornin' - but worthwhile.
With that, I'm outta here. Verb day - off to GO and DO--! Have a good 'un, peeps. Carpe diem!
