It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here.

I’m busy these days. Our lives here in Bellingham are unfolding in wonderful ways. And honestly, diabetes has mostly been on the periphery lately. We’re enjoying the summer weather with its cool pacific breezes and tolerating the odd hot day. We’ve had visitors and we’re having more in September. I’ve been learning a new way of painting. Days pass, and I don’t think much about diabetes. I do what I have to do, and move on.

But diabetes is still there. It’s there. No matter what. One day a few weeks ago I woke up and realized it’s been my constant companion for the last 6 years. And that felt really sad.
