This week is all about taking a break from diabetes.  In my early years, I did that….. a lot!  I thought I could party like a rock star and ignore the silent things happening inside my body.

But diabetes is a wicked companion who will not be ignored.  And oh, how I have tried.  And paid a heavy price.  Dehydration, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, headache and hyperglycemia.  Yuck!
