« Diabetes Art Day: February 4th! | Main | An Exercise in Short Letters. »

Scrabbled.

Diabetes management is a delicate balance between "I'm fine" and "How sick am I?"  Between feeling awesome and feeling like garbage.  Between being knocked down by a low blood sugar to finding your footing again a few minutes later. A balance of insulin and exercise, food choices and blood sugars, rinse and repeat.

A balance of try, fail, try, succeed, and try again, damn it!

On some days, it can be exhausting.  And if someone leaves you alone with a Scrabble board and too much coffee for too long, you might take your aggressions out on the tiles.  

The "yeehaw!!" is what I want to yell when I see a 100 mg/dL on my meter.

Hope is on there twice because it needs to be.  (Also, I couldn't find another C for "community."  And every time I added a blank, it just looked like I Photoshopped it and/or forgot how to spell.  And adding "mgdl" just looked sloppy, yo.)

You've got some extra "hope" there, which I'd say is an excellent word to repeat.

VERY COOL, VERY TRUE. Also, if you scatter some used test strips on/around the board and those empty insulin bottles you've been saving, me thinks you've got your 2013 Diabetes Art Day Project !

I couldn't find another C for "community." And every time I added a blank, it just looked like I Photoshopped it and/or forgot how to spell.

See this is how not being able to spell in the first place helps. Ya get to a point where ya just don't care anymore. Kommunity is fin by me.

Funny. I never thought of "strength" as a long word before. One little syllable. So much inside it. Telling.

Love this post!

Very cool, but in my house some one would argue that yeehaw is not a real word. Then someone would complain that you were wasting all the triple word squares.

And here I thought you added HOPE because you WANTED to get the Triple Word Score!

You could have put KERRI against the second I in INSULIN, then put SIXUNTILME down to that E in your name. It may break the rules, but it's a boatload of points!

Guilt, love, try.

Good one Kerri...you win!!!

Dear God Kerri..this is brilliant!

Got t-shirts in the works?
