Body of Proof and Careers and Children. :)

I'm sorry - I just keep forgetting. I can also never think of anything to say.

But today, I watched the new episode of Body of Proof. Which is pretty awesome.

Here, have some flails:

Mary Mouser is a series regular now!
The diabetes storyline, although not front and center, is still there, on the sidelines. Just like the real thing. Always there, but not always visible.
There's a new cute guy!
I love this show so much!!!

Today, I had random lows all day. Including a 2.9 while I was trying to babysit four kids. 'Twas okay though. Also, four-year-olds are my new favourite. They're adorable and they love me but they're not independent enough to not need me and they're intelligent and they actually make sense when they talk. :)

And Sparks camp was this weekend. (And next weekend for the other group). It was fun, except for the fact that apparently, Sparks don't like sleeping. They were up until at least 11 (although one of them may have stayed up all night), woke up multiple times during the night, and got up at 6 or so. And EVERY time they woke up, they wanted to talk to me. Being the favourite can be hard. XD But it also means I get lots of hugs.

I love kids. I just...they're awesome. I love talking to them and being responsible for them and hanging out with them. I'm sad that there are not very many careers in working with children.

That's another thing - we've been researching careers and education in Planning, and it's kind of stressful. I don't know what I want to do with my life. I know that I want to work with children - but I don't want to teach, I want a fair amount of money, and I don't want to run a daycare. Not a lot of careers fit all that criteria. Right now I'm leaning towards Pediatric nurse (again) - and I was surprised to learn that BCIT is the only school in north america that offers a specialized pediatric nursing program. Which is pretty awesome. Also, a pediatrician can make up to 300,000 dollars a year. That's a lot. And it made me think - maybe? I don't know. I just don't know!!!

When people try to tell someone about my diabetes, sometimes they say I'm 'sick.'
I disagree. I don't think I'm sick. I have a condition which I have to manage, but it doesn't make me sick.

But today, I am sick.
Real people sick.
I don't like it.

I can't remember the last time I felt this awful. I have no energy. At all. I've spent the last 17 hours in bed, unable to do anything.
Yesterday the only thing I ate was a small bowl of yogourt.
And then I had some glucose tablets and Fresca.
Which I promptly threw up. (And I must say, rasberry tabs and fresca make the least offensive acid I've ever tasted.)

And although my blood sugars have been steady and in a good place, I want this to be over.
The hot-cold-hot-cold has to stop.
Also, I want my energy back. Remember when I could sit up without a Herculean effort? Those were the days. XD

And my arm site, suprisingly, has stayed on for 6 days.
I should really, really change it.

Status quo.

I'M SORRY I'M SORRY I'M SORRY it's been a while.

I've had a LOT to deal with recently.

Also, I have nothing to say.

Everything diabetes-wise has been really well behaved recently. Really well.

I went skiing for the first time last weekend. That was fun. Suprisingly, no lows.

Course selection has started at school, which is quite stressful, and I've also been looking into scholarships, which excites me. I could get so much money so easily...

Diabetes Art Day!

Last year when I heard about diabetes art day, I promised myself that I'd do it this year.
I saw it on sixuntilme last week - now I know that it's always the first Monday in February. :)
For some reason though, I didn't think that I could art beforehand. Why, brain? I thought that I HAD to do it today. And anyway, I forgot before now. But, I did art because I always keep my self-promises. So, although it's not beautiful, it means a lot, and it's my little piece of diabetes art. :)

'How I get through each day'

Test bottles, love, time, and EVERY SINGLE used test strip in my house. :)

I don't think I'm going to upload it this year, because I guess it isn't really 'art', as defined by the gallery site, but it's awesome to see what other people have made, and you can see them all here. :)
