Time to reflect….Sept 2016

Sitting on a plane, gives me time to reflect on how I want to proceed with my blog !! I stopped writing my blog as I had a recent issue with my eyes…A complication of diabetes, ‘Diabetic Maculopathy ‘. which I am now having injections for .. in my eyes !!

My first reaction was to say why me ! Then I decided to turn it round and be positive..I opened up an Instagram account to fill with inspirational sayings and photographs that made me happy..I called it ‘ @alternativediabetic ‘ . Hopefully helping others going through similar situations in life.

I want to live my life to the full as you don’t  know whats round the corner, also travel more ..hence my blog stopped for a while ! ..Now after another short break  I’m ready to carry on bringing my story up to date …

June 1992 .. My life turned upside down !

I was still working, but needed to read everything about travelling with diabetes as my job meant me travelling to the Far East and turning my body clock round!  Now that I injected it worried me.

The end of late night dinners ..I started staying in more as I used to have low sugars everyday sometimes twice a day but that was because my sugars were  up and down ..later to be diagnosed as brittle diabetes .

We were trying for a baby , soon after our honeymoon I conceived but 8weeks later I had a miscarriage which transpired was because I was early stages diabetic but had not been diagnosed yet!

I was told I couldn’t get pregnant until my sugars were stable …6.0 to 6.9 mmol/l (108 to 126 mg/dl)….
