As we drove up to the stadium to tailgate I could feel my mood changing as my blood sugar began to drop. I was talking and being my usual silly self, I checked my pump and was down to 150. The timing couldn't have been better, I took my insulin at the right time. We would setup our tailgating goodies and be eating as my blood sugar got down to 100. It was a perfect storm, i could enjoy the food, a couple beers and the company of others. As the rain began to fall my blood sugar began staying level, time for the game. Unfortunately the Broncos got beat but my blood sugars were great and I was with great people. The Broncos could have lost by fifty and I would have been smiling the whole time. It was only one game but I feel that I slayed the monkey that was on my back. I feel that I can now go to sporting events and not have my diabetes holding me back. A lot of work goes in to controlling every aspect of my diabetes but I will be more then happy to do the work if it means I can have fun and enjoy the event.
Today I found a great clip from the movie Pursuit of Happiness, I'm not one for movies but I will watch the heart wrenching parts all day on YouTube. I get the best parts of the movies and I get a little motivation. Anyway enjoy the clip and always try to remember what is said in it. DON'T EVER GIVE UP!!!
