Atoka. This trail was so nice and everyone loved the terrain. Above you can see my backpack all loaded down before we head out on our two day journey into the woods. Of course as you can tell I am testing my blood sugars before we leave.
milk snake that had crawled into one of the boys packs as we rested on the trail. It took him a little bit to be convinced that it was not venomous, dangerouse, or that another snake did not crawl into his backpack as well.
At the end of each day, and well I guess during each day I do always think about my diabetes. I had an old doctor once tell me that if you did not think about your diabetes at least seven times a day you are doing something wrong. I would adjust that to at least 20 times a day and even then I am usually doing something wrong. What do they say, just keep it between the lines and everything will work out in the end. I think that is how diabetics do it. We just keep it between the safe lines and check, test, and do it all over again the next day. It is a depressing disease because it is not seen on the outside and I would non-scientifically say that 90% of people think that you just don't eat sugar and all is well. Then throw in the non-scientific 80% of diabetics are type two and well the rest of us just deal with it the best we can from childhood to the end.
