Daily a Diabetic

Diabetes is Just a Word

Life’s good. The pump still is awesome and terrible at the same time (please refer to the post before this one). My last A1C was 5.1, which was down right amazing! My doctor was shocked. I was struggling with lows though, so that factored in pretty bad. I did some tweaking to my pump settings helping with my lows, but now I’m getting more high. I REALLY hate being high. It makes me freaked out. I just hate the idea that my toes could stop feeling someday, and for a blotch to appear in my vision. I’m scared all the time. I worry myself into the ground about what I should do. Recently, I’ve been trying to counter-act that by just fixing the problem when it comes without the emotions. I suppress the anxiety the best I can, and continue on my day. When I do that, Jared doesn’t have to worry as much. I don’t want to weary him constantly with ailments that will always come back to haunt me. I don’t want him to worry.

Art Soul

Poems and Things
      By: Rachel Wrathall

I am an artist

to the heart.

And thus I list,

I’ll never part.

 

From molding clay

Into a bowl,

To painting a sun ray,

or a human soul,

 

I’ll never leave you

beautiful arts.

Myself be new

with improving smarts.

 

I few years ago

I could never draw.

Now I could never let go,

My new eyes see less flaw.

 

But still today I quake

Because the mounting tasks can sting,

But I know just what’s at stake,

If I don’t let my soul out to sing.
