Diabetes is my best friend. 

I’ve been mulling on this blog post since last Friday. Eight entire days, I’ve been debating writing what I’m really thinking, no holds barred. It’s been keeping me awake at night, niggling in the back of my mind, gnawing at my every thought.

(Thank you Scott E of Rolling in the D for this topic.)”

I know that I have been brutally, painfully honest on here, often at my own expense. It’s weird and hard to know that any or all of your 1500 facebook friends can read your blog posts, especially when I’ve posted about my battle with diabulimia and other sensitive subjects. However there are a few things I will not share on here (so don’t ask!)
