Who Can Test Their Blood Sugar the Fastest?

Let’s race.

Last week I went to a camp with my whole family. It’s a part of my church so many of the same people go every year. For example, these two guys, Collin and Tom go every year that I’ve been there. Tom is the dad and Collin is the kid. And they both have Type 1 Diabetes. So naturally we are best buddies.

I proposed that we have a race of “who can test their blood sugar the fastest”. I knew that Tom would win, because he has had diabetes for a lot longer then either Collin or me. But I thought it would be fun.

We raced. I won. By a lot. But I stalled so it would be closer. But it was still fun. And I highly recommend that everyone does this with their friends. It is so much fun!

Sincerely,

The Winner, Unbeatable, Type 1 diabetic

SUMMER

Welcome back, everyone! It feels like I haven’t blogged in FOREVER. Well, I hope to fix that. I can explain my absence in some part, though. If you’ve been following my blog, then you might know that I moved to Mexico for a year. And I just got back to my home in Colorado. I got back the day before yesterday. If you want more info on my so called “Adventure to Mexico”, my family has a blog about it.

Now that Summer is finally here (for me, anyway), I’ve got some stuff that I like to call time. Time to have the perfect A1C. Time to start up my CGM again. Time to exercise  a ton.

So that’s what I did. I started my CGM back up about two weeks ago, and I’ve  remembered how much I LOVE IT. So if you don’t have a CGM, your missing out, in my opinion. But if you don’t want one, that’s your choice. I’m not going to try to convince you to get one, because it’s your choice. Though I am in love with mine.

So it’s summer!!! WOOT WOOT!! I don’t really know what to say that’s diabetes related, but, hey! Whatever. I need some time to just relax and hang out. Not think about important things like diabetes. And post random blog posts, like this one, which seem to have a direction at first, but then just go on rambling. But at this point, I don’t care.

Have you guys seen the new Harry Potter movie yet? Did you totally love it? Are you sad that the series is over? (RANDOM.)

Sooooooo…… Happy Summer!! Yay! Go to the pool! Get sun burned! Bolus, or at some party or something, you’ll go high!

And thanks for reading!
