Forgotten again

Wow... here it is Late March 2014! Where does the time go?

I know I have failed miserably with this blog. So much going on in "real life". I'm not going to say something like "I won't neglect my blog anymore", or resolve to do better. I've done that before-- several times-- and have failed every single time.

Thanks to some awesome advice from a good friend, I am going to do this blog for ME. It will share MY feelings, and MY layouts, and if no one other than me reads them, it's ok, because I am not going to worry about getting my blog "out there". I have wasted money on a url and web space when I don't even use it.

Well, I guess two big things in particular have happened since I last blogged. One of them is that I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in late November 2013. Blood sugar was so high that it put me in the hospital for 4 days the day after Thanksgiving. I am now on a pill as well as 2 types of insulin.
The good news is that I immediately started making changes in my life, and I have gotten my diabetes under control. So much so that my Endocrinologist wants me to be a mentor to other patients who are struggling with their diabetes. I love that I can take my experiences and help others achieve the same goals.

The other big thing that has happened in my life is that I moved into my own place at the end of February. This is my first time legitimately on my own with no family, room mates, or spouse. Tomorrow will mark one month since I moved. I still struggle with being on my own... especially at night. Also, I live literally next to a railroad track, so there are trains coming through at all hours of the day and night, blaring their horn. I'll have to get a video of that sometime. And give you a video tour of my place.  I'll work on those once I get my voice back.

For now though, this is my update for you. If someone reads it, great! If not, that's ok. Cause I'm doing this for me. :)
