From Abby: [D-Blog Week] One Great Thing.
It's hard to pinpoint one thing I do well with diabetes. Let's face it - I do everything well. Diabetes is so easy for me. I'm constantly 104 mg/dL. My blood sugar never strays from 80-120 ... ever.
I wouldn't even dream of eating sugar. Especially cake, when I pass my nursing boards, at diabetes camp, while working 24 hours a day. Nope. Not me.
I wear my Dexcom for 7 days only and never calibrate unless it asks me to and my BG is steady, so my meter and CGM are dead on all the time. Always. I actually throw it out the window when it's more than 1 mg/dL off.
Pasta? Bread? I don't even know where that section in the grocery store is. I only eat chicken and green beans always. Because that cures diabetes, ya know. No carbs.
Long story short, I live my life, I survive, I have fun, and I do the best I can with my diabetes. Most days are unremarkable, I check my blood sugar 6-8 times daily, I change my pump site every 3-4 days, I bolus for pretty much everything I eat. I just live, and diabetes tags along.

Yup, you definitely have sarcasm nailed. In addition to making us grin.
