Oh my god I have been cut to the quick, my one and only commentator has accused me of being a TOFU eater. Imagine the nerve!!!

I don't even eat turkey dogs, tofu dogs are a bridge too far. If it wasn't for meat I wouldn't eat anything at all, I almost pity the diabetes dietitian when she tries that shit on me.

I gave up bread and beer I am NOT giving up steak

SO CHRIS take it back and apologize!!!

Okay here goes the next instalment on my sad weird little life

The sugar thing, due to medication and a careful diet I seem to have it under control. its still high but it has leveled off and there are no more over the top spikes and I have in fact started having some results below 10. I am reasonably happy with this especially as it has been less than 1 week.

Don't tell anyone but at the age of 39 I finally ate a whole salad and whats worse I enjoyed it. okay now you know my darkest secret, I ate a salad!!! I am so ashamed

Work appears to be going completely off the rails this year and the amount of work available is going to be limited only by our ability to attract employees.

Does any one want a job in western Canada? I might have to go to Arizona and borrow some of their illegals.

i have been burning up the test strips for new electronic meter trying to get a handle on my blood sugar. It seems to be all over the place and always much much too high. I am considering not testing anymore just so I don't have to admit how bad it is

I am scared they are going to put me on injectable because of the high readings and if they do that they will take my license.

I have a class semi truck drivers license and I am sure if they put me on injections I will lose it. I don't use it much anymore probably less than 10 times a year but its part of who I am and what I am.

My brother always says "stupidity wins"

I say ignorance is bliss

Today I was diagnosed with diabetes. It remains to be seen how it will affect my life and how I choose to live it but now I have to be a grown up and watch what eat.

Sometimes ignorance is bliss
