I'm not broken....

I just need to create something better.

Our challenge was to write about something we are struggling with. For me, that's an easy thing to pinpoint. I'm stuggling with EVERYTHING!

I have been on a SP break for the past month and to be honest, for many months prior to that. I ws so busy trying to fix everything that I mentally checked out and didn't work on anything.

Today the opportunity presented itself. A missing teammate and a request has led me back to starting over and seeing if I can create something better.

First big hurdle -- taking my meds as I should. I've been avoiding my doctor because I know that my A1C will be high again due to me skipping shots or not watching what I was eating. So this will be my focus goal this week -- take my insulin.

I've taken the first step and set up an doctor's appt for later this month. I have renewed all of my prescriptions and am carrying my diabetic kit with me where ever I go. I'm not allowing myself to eat anything without first taking my shots.

I know we were to focus on one item, but I'm also going to add to this nutritional tracking. First, I need to do it for our daily challenges, but more importantly, I need it to help keep my blood sugars in check.

I'm feeling anxious about getting back in the game.

    emoticon Calm. Peace. You are among friends. The challenges are fun and help us to create healthy habits (like daily tracking). I'm so happy you're joining us.

    emoticon I'm glad your first goal is to keep up with your meds. Is it possible that if you lose weight, you won't need the meds? If so, keep that goal in mind.

    Laura, you can do this. It's all about taking each day as it comes. Don't overwhelm yourself with trying to do it all in a day. Go with what you can do that day and focus then and then move to the next day when it comes. Good luck!

    You can do it, Laura!! Glad you're back on your meds. I went a couple of months without mine. Then I developed Cellulitis and my blood sugars and pressure went sky high. I'm back taking mine every day. Take care!

    Perfect attititude --- goes along with "you gotta start somewhere". Getting that blood sugar back in check should make you feel so much better and that will lead to tracking more and that will lead to.................................
