DSMA January Blog Carnival: What’s next?

On January 26, 2012 by Cherise Shockley

What is the one thing you are looking forward to in 2012?  (diabetes related)

Personal:  Last year, my diabetes management wasn’t the best. I didn’t to take care of myself or my diabetes like I should have. I would forget to test first thing in the morning and eat things I know would cause self inflected wounds or high blood sugars.  I’m tired of being tired and making excuses. It’s time for me to do something and take action.  In 2012, I’m looking forward to working on myself and taking the steps I need towards owning my it.  I also plan on going back to college.

I’m also looking forward to all the new diabetes technology and diabetes meet-ups.  I highly recommend d-meet ups. Online interaction is amazing but meeting someone in person..wow!
