Summer's here in full force. So beautiful and relaxing, 1 week into vacation. It's amazing how much better you feel after some time to slow down. Sun and small adventures and more time off, streching before me, really helped me to forget about diabetes these last couple of days. There are the usual bumps and tweaks but overall everything feels smoother. I don't know if it's the less frenzied schedule or my less frenzied attitude, but regardless, so far so good. I'm feeling like maybe this sabbatical will go better than the last one, thanks to the pump. Fingers still crossed and a bit more hopeful.
