Just thought I'd let y'all know I didn't drop off the face of the planet. And I'm so ready for some football, I'm about to get UNready!! As we all know, the offseason sucks, but mine was a real beeyotch---got sick last winter and stayed that way for months, and then I got depressed on top of being sick and tired. Turns out I have diabetes. I don't have to take insulin, at least not yet, but I am taking pills and trying to learn how to eat properly. Yeah, me---a nurse who should've known what all those symptoms meant, and I went stupid and had to re-learn diabetes care as it applies to ME. Six months after my diagnosis, I'm still figuring out how to stick to a #@&!! diet, and I'm still confused as to why my blood sugar shoots into the stratosphere when I eat something so innocuous as oatmeal---OATMEAL!! But other than that, life's good, and I'm about to become an empty-nester since the youngest boy is finally flying the coop. Looking forward to another season of football, fun, and BoltTalk!!
