Time For Diabetes To 'Take A Break'

Page 27, 'Take A Break' Magazine, Journalist: Lucy Jolin

If you follow Diabetic Dais on Facebook or Twitter, you'll already be sick of hearing me going on and onnnnn about being featured in 'Take A Break' magazine this week.  However, I'm so pleased that I'm going to write a post on here about it too.  One day I will stop talking about it, but not today ;)

Basically I just want to say thank you to the DOC and to everyone who reads either of my blogs, who comments, who follows me on Twitter, who's liked Diabetic Dais on Facebook or has generally just taken an interest.  Without your unwavering support, I very much doubt that my blog would have been noticed by a journalist so thanks, you lovely people!

If you're here because you've read the article in 'Take A Break', thank you for checking it out!  You can find out a little bit more about my 'diabetic story' by clicking here.  Basically I blog about my diabetes because I hope that by giving a true account of living with type 1, I can prevent people from making generalisations and increase awareness.  I also write about it because it helps me focus more on my blood sugar control and I love meeting new people who live with diabetes too, so please feel free to chat to me!

Anyway, that's about it for today.  Blood sugars have been running a little high today - I haven't had one reading below 10 which is a bit annoying but hey ho.  Oh yeah...and I've wasted 3 testing strips by not putting enough blood on them so they error'ed.  I think it's time to admit that I need to 'up' the dial on my finger pricker so I can actually draw some might help I suppose.

Hope the start to your week has been a good one!
