Well I made it! It was 3 years ago, I was laying in a hospital in ICU. My first over night in a hospital I might add. LOL That's when I was told I am a Type 1 Diabetic. So there I am a 52 year old man, in DKA, bs 672 and a1c of 13.2. Lucky me I got to learn a whole new way of living.
This road call Club 1 has been interesting to say the least. I now know how a pin cushion/dartboard feels. ROFLMAO That stupid thing I said in school years ago came back and got me. You know " Why should I have learn this I'll never use it!" Now I have to do that math just to eat, well you guys know!!!!
I also have to say I don't think I've been so healthy in decades. lol I am down to about 185 or so (6 feet tall) my last 3 a1c's have been 5.8 and I only use Novolg at 1 unit for 15-20 carbs. I also haven't needed any long insulin in months and my frig has a bunch of insulin in the butter compartment.
That's me living La Vida Diabetic!!!
