I've been a little off on the blogging front lately...and I need to get back into it- lots of traveling over the past 7 weeks and we're finally settling down and getting back to normal.
Last Sunday, my brother and my SIL had an IUI procedure. I'm praying extremely hard that things work out for them, even though there is only a 7-10% chance of conception actually happening. I believe tomorrow is the day that she'll actually find out, but I'm not calling or asking. I figure if there is good news, I'll hear about it. If there is bad news, I'll know about it. I did have an amazingly real dream the other night that she had a positive pregnancy test- so I'm taking that as a sign that things are going well. So, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers...I would absolutely love to be an aunt!
I've been feeling crappy on and off for the last couple days. Part of it was my period, but last night, I broke out in a cold sweat, felt nauseous and weak...but it went away and I'm better again. Blood sugars have been relatively stable and normal. I feel that since I've started volunteering at Children's Hospital, I've been exposed to more sickness than normal..perhaps I'm catching a few things?
I've been reading other community bloggers posts lately regarding the support or lack of support for adults with T1. This really got me thinking about how far I've come in the past 5 years. Honestly, most of my support and a lot of education that I've received has come from all of you out here in the blogging world. Sure, I walk with JDRF every Fall, but mainly in support of my 6 year old cousin with T1- not because of me. It is very much a kid focused event, which I'm fine with, but what about a 5k sponsored event from JDRF for adults living with T1? Maybe I'll start one.....now to find a contact! I would love to find a 5k race that is in support of myself - but it seems as though "running" or "races" are out for those with T1- mainly because most people think we can't handle it. That's my goal for this coming year- run a race and tackle any lows that may come along with it. But I want to run for myself- it's hard to find.
