Learning

I am now basically a big walking cliché. All the things I’ve heard but not taken to heart are beginning to be a reality for me. Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s my illness. Though now the reason doesn’t seem to matter so much, as long as I learn my lesson.

Don’t take things for granted.

A day where you don’t learn something new, is a day not lived.

I could go on and on, but why. None of these are new concepts. I’m not here to teach anyone anything but to share my journey. If you get joy, new information, or just like to know what I’m doing; I welcome you to continue my journey with me. And please feel free to drop a line.

This new journey is so exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. Even though the cause wasn’t a great one, but why not make the journey a durable one. I’ve learned iMovie is a great tool. I’m still a beginner at it, but at least I’ve learned something I never knew how to operate before. I’ve learned new words like nephrologist, and proteinuria. I’ve also learned that I need to be strong, for no one else but myself.

I used to believe I need to set big goals, and find out the mystery in life. With everything that is happening, I’ve learned to set smaller, more obtainable goals one at a time. It may seem like I’m going backwards in life. But who is really the judge to say, which stage needs to happen at what age.

Now I want to learn how to make videos more pleasing to the eye. It may be that I need a tri-pod or need to learn how to edit the videos more. I also need to get my glucose down to about 90-95 in the morning. The last 2 weeks I’ve gotten it down to about 100-115. So I know I can do it. Don’t lose sight of why I’m doing all of this! I want to be able to have a choice to get pregnant and give my child a fighting chance at a healthier life.

Sugar Free Brownie

This past weekend I made sugar free brownie for the first time. My hubby(non-diabetic) was the tester and he approves! It did not have any after taste, so yummy! Since it’s got about 24g of carbs in 12th of a package, I could only eat one per snack time. At least now I have a great dessert to have when I’m craving chocolate! 

 

Stress

The root cause of my chronic illness, stress! Many people, myself included thought that eating sugar or candy is what causes diabetes. However there are many other factors. Genes, diet, stress.

I’m not a doctor nor have a degree in anything medical related. But going through this invisible disease I’m slowly understanding more and more that stress has a bigger part than anyone could imagine.

It’s almost midnight. More on this topic in a vlog at a later time!

Just the beginning

So glad this is up and running. It is so in the baby stages right now but that’s okay. Too many of my pictures, ideas, and videos (new addition) are spread out everywhere. I love having this centralized location for all of it. All of ME! Check back often, more contents will be posted any time! 

Hang on tight with the logistics of the site. I am too excited to get my thoughts out first! 😀
