I love that it’s raining and cold. I love that the clouds here are dark and rolling, even on a simple overcast day. I love the way they settle into the mountains and leave wisps and tendrils curling around the trees. I love wearing warm socks and long sleeved shirts and sweaters, and gaining a new appreciation for the radiating effect of my sleeping husband.
My blood sugars have been much better, lately, which is a relief. I think some of it was the stress of moving and a new place, and some the lack of a daily schedule. I’m looking forward to a new pump and starting the CGMS in December.
One of the more complicated things for me to deal with in terms of chronic illness is the unknown factor. I spend too much time fearing the outcomes that could happen. But today, more than anything, I feel grateful. Because right now, I’m okay.
