Whoa oh oh, feelings. Subtle ones. Beyond mad/glad/sad.



For breakfast sans spike, avoid maple syrup. This novel discovery trademarked by Joe. YDMV.

Share app, if this kind of line + lovebug of choice out in cruel world = sink into warm tub on cold day or dunk in cold tub outside masochist sauna. Or like stare into dog’s eyes in oxytocin love loop after rough day or during zombie apocalypse. Ahhh.


Verio, you don't always report my (my!) fasting BG as 140, but when you do, I re-test to make sure you really meant that.

Verio, you don’t always report my (my!) fasting BG as 140mg/dL, but when you do, I wash my hands and re-test to make sure you really meant that. Then I take a snapshot. 

Also new for Bigfoot diabetes: official “lucky” spot on left bird flip finger. Ostentatious callous. For lancet pokes and new nervous habit of callous-nibbling while driving. Really can’t bear poke any other spot.


This worst fasting BG ever, pretty sure. Meanwhile, little bit relief because earlier this week fasting BG = 97mg/dL. Ergo worried Bigfoot = cured fraud.


This week found out Diabetes Hands Foundation award BF scholarship Master Lab! Maybe high BG help BF assimilate, something in common beyond collard wraps/Diet Coke? So grateful, happy scholarship. Not really believe it.

    Congratulations on the scholarship! Really sorry to see that elevated BG! I can only imagine how you must feel… I hope you find the conference to be helpful.

    On a tangential note, I finally decided that I would sign up for TrialNet at the last JDRF conference that I attended. Thoughts of the results that your family received enters into my mind — am I up for that worry? As it turns out, I cannot enroll. I had gestational diabetes with my third pregnancy. This was both disappointing and a little disturbing. My pancreas obviously has some limitations.

    Anyway, have a great weekend — and keep looking into your adorable doggie’s eyes. 😉

    Congrats on the scholarship. And bummer about the highest fasting BG ever. Look forward to hearing more about both although Master Lab is much better than worsening fasting numbers.

    Master Lab. So happy! BG. Bleh. So real. But still! Master lab! You must be on a cloud.

    I liked this post because I’m excited that you’re going to MasterLab! I’m also sad, because I won’t be there. But… I know it will be a great experience for you. Yay!
