Tips and tricks

#DBlogDay number five: Tips and tricks
Writing this on my phone today, as sitting at my desk is too painful. Herein is my first tip:
1) Don't forget that not all of your health issues have to do with diabetes! Take care of yourself normally as well as "diabetically". I rolled over something on my side a few days ago. Thought I pulled a muscle so let it lie. Woke today in excruciating pain. Docs tell me it's a bruised or cracked rib. The lesson is: if it doesn't feel right get it checked out!
2) You are not alone!!! There are many others of us out here who share some of the same challenges you have faced. Don't be afraid to ask us for help! If we don't know, we probably know someone who does. We're not doctors and can't give medical advice, but we can give life advice and be a listening, compassionate, ear.
3) Nobody's perfect - everybody makes mistakes! Making a mistake isn't a reason to beat yourself up or to give up. Pick yourself up and keep moving on. It will resolve itself one way or another.
That's all I have for today I hope this helps somebody. Have a wonderful weekend!!!
