Cathy's Words of Wisdom

In May 2012 I received a very thoughtul email from Cathy...

Dr. Blumer, I thought I would share this list with you. I hope my blessings can help someone else. Please feel free to share this list with anyone you think could benefit:

1. I get to go first! For any medical procedures that require fasting, that is.
2. I am eating a healthy food plan (not a diet).
3. I will lose some weight.
4. I like to walk, good thing since I need to exercise and incentive to do it!
5. I have met some great people, like my diabetes nurse eductor, Michelle. And  my chiropodist, Julia.
6. I have an excellent doc.  My Health care team is with me every step of the way. I am not in this alone.
7. I can help others who have diabetes by learning all I can.
8. I can eat anything as long as I plan ahead. Cake is not a four letter word!
9. I am in control! Diabetes does not control me.
10. My sense of humor will carry me far, as well as a positive attitude!
11. I am NOT a failure! My pancreas failed, not me. (Thank you, Dr Blumer!)
12. When I am tempted, I just need to look for a way of escape, and take it!
Have a great day.
