This past weekend, I ran a 5k with zero training. In fact, I signed up for it only about two hours before the actual race began.
Diabetes limits my impulsivity (Is that a word? It is now, I guess) in so many ways. I don’t get to just grab a cupcake and eat it without a second thought. So much of my life for the past almost 5 years has been planning, provisioning, and preparation.
However, on Saturday when my friends Chris and Chad said they were running a 5K that night and asked if Allen and I were going to be there, I decided on the spot that I wanted to do it. I decided to be impulsive because, you know what, fuck diabetes!

For many people, 2016 was a horrible, no good, very bad year. So many celebrities died. Brexit happened. A very strange US election happened. All among other things.
But for me? 2016 was honestly amazing.
It feels almost like a bad thing for me to be saying that because so many people around me had such a terrible year, but it’s true. 2016 was great in so many ways for me.
Somehow I missed that yesterday was the start of another #DBlogWeek. What is it? It’s a week where we diabetes-related blogs post each day focused on a particular subject or topic.
Today’s topic: : “Many of us share lots of aspects of our diabetes lives online for the world to see. What are some of the aspects of diabetes that you choose to keep private from the internet? Or from your family and friends? Why is it important to keep it to yourself? (This is not an attempt to get you out of your comfort zone. There is no need to elaborate or tell personal stories related to these aspects. Simply let us know what kinds of stories we will never hear you tell, and why you won’t tell them.) (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!)
