You'd think after 22 years of being diabetic I'd avoid the rookie mistakes, but no...

I decided to treat myself to some chocolate after lunch and completely forgot to bolus for it, which lead to a lovely 15.1 at break time, and me making confused faces until I realised what I'd done (thank goodness for the bolus history on the pump!).

I managed to end up back down to a more reasonable 6.9 within three hours though, which I was rather pleased with! :D

Positive attitude

I've had a few people say how much they admire my attitude in dealing with diabetes and AIH, and while I don't really feel that I'm doing anything special, I do try to be positive and just get on with it. Mainly because I think if I let myself get depressed and pessimistic and "woe is me" about things, I don't think I'd be able to deal with anything, and I refuse to let diabetes/AIH rule my life that way.

However, that doesn't mean that I don't have days where I get pissed off, where I wish it would all just go away, or at the very least behave itself, and I think that's ok as well, it's all part of the dealing process. I love xkcd in general, and when I saw this comic today, it really resonated with me, because it's so true.

In a completely random note I've just discovered that I actually have comments on some of my other entries! I do apologise for not responding, I wasn't being rude, I'd just figured that Blogger would send me email notifications if I received comments and apparently it doesn't...
