Well, I'm back, with a completely fresh start, having been diagnosed as Diabetic in December 2018.
Limited mobility, vertigo, and a wealth of other issues arising from those means that this whole walking away from Diabetes is going to be quite a challenge, but I'm determined to try and avoid medication for it if I can - got enough pills already rattling around in me, so I'd like to avoid adding to them.
Back again. Covid has played havoc with my diabetes and my UK mmol number has gone up from 40 to 109!!! Found out on Wed 14th Oct 2020. Spent a few days processing this and then remembered SP, so I am back again hoping to get my number right back down as time goes on.

Member Since: 12/25/2018

Fitness Minutes: 652

My Goals:
Move from diabetic to pre-diabetic, and eventually to not diabetic at all. And get off the pills I now have to take because of Covid.

My Program:
Walking! However that works out - indoors using my Wii, Leslie Sansone DVDs and walks outside with my new off-roading walker named Kirby!

Personal Information:
I'm in the UK. Colchester in Essex to be exact. I am a Colchester Blanketeer member, and I run a local charity group on Facebook.
We make Blankets and other necessities for people at End of Life, Chemotherapy patients, and dementia sufferers in our local hospital. We also make Trauma Teddies and help with other needs when requested. Members are making masks for the local 'Mask Trees'. And have raised a staggering amount of money for local charities including the Food Bank.

Other Information:
I love my crochet, and needed an outlet for my makes, and the Blanketeers supply that, as well as lovely friends, and a good deal of laughter at our fortnightly meetings.
Of course meetings haven't been happening since February, but we see each other online, and meet up in small groups sometimes within local covid laws.
