I started this blog back at the end of October and was pretty good about blogging pretty frequently at first. I have really enjoyed writing this blog and reading other blogs and being a part of the Type 1 Diabetes online community. As I reflect back on 2012 a lot has happened. I quit my job in April where I worked as an accountant at a non-profit to go to work for my husband. This was a huge change for me because I had been there for five years and it provided incredible stability with regards to schedule which was perfect for my diabetes. Although, having a flexible schedule has its advantages. With my new flexible schedule, I was able to see the Discovery Shuttle flyover DC in April (photo above) but is not always great for keeping my blood sugars in good control.
In 2012, my husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary in Europe, where we traveled for 3 weeks. Planning diabetic supplies for three weeks was not exactly easy. I’ll have another article posted about the stress leading up to that planning. I also traveled to Ireland in March, which is a beautiful country, and California in June. I skied down my first black diamond hill in February at Breckenridge, Colorado. In August, my husband and I bought a house which included a relocation 100 miles south of where we were living but close to my family which is nice.
2012 was also the year where I really focused on getting my A1C below seven. The closest I got was 7.1 but thanks to my CGM and my new hobby of running, the last few months of 2012 were my best ever and I can’t wait to get my A1C checked again. While I reflect back on 2012, it wasn’t all roses. I definitely had my struggles with my diabetes. But hey, that’s every day of every year.
Thanks for a great year 2012. Can’t wait to see what 2013 brings :).
