"Thoughts don't necessarily happen one at a time. They come in starbursts and waterfalls and explosions and they race away on parallel tracks, jostling, competing, fighting for supremacy."
Sometimes I think that how I take care of my diabetes follows the same patterns. I'm testing. And I'm bolusing. And I'm changing my pump site. But I'm surviving. And that's all. And then I have the time to think, and I realize that there's a specific time of day where I'm having the same problem. And then one day it's fixed. But two things changed that day, so I need to try to separate the two and see which actually caused the improvement. And sometimes that's hard. Wait, that is hard. We aren't living with a straight-line disease. But we do live with straight-line medicine. So the ideas on how to make it work best come and go, and work and don't work.
After reading this quote, I've started texting or emailing myself my diabetes ideas. It has helped. I don't know if it has helped for the long-run, but so far it seems to have been helping.
