Human? Moi? OMG, yes! A year ago I was a simple English instructor. I also made homemade bread and desserts. Then, I found out I was on the road to diabetes and had to monitor my blood sugar. My first reaction was the lab tests are wrong
and then oh crap
. Since my mom and grandmother died from this disease, I knew I had to be proactive or I'd go down the same road. So, now that I've been in pretty good control and I was made a moderator, I'm supposed to know everything? No, I don't.
I'm learning as I go and have learned a lot from everyone on the Forum. Since I love to cook, I guess you'd say different food is my forte. This is not a perfect life though, as I see our son eating all the wrong things. He's a tall, sweet 26 year old teddy bear but stubborn and thinks he's invinceable.
On the other hand our 23 year old daughter is interested in changing what she eats and understands cause and effect, so to speak. There are times I've slipped and eaten something I know I shouldn't
but now it's easier to stay on track and I would say it's because of participating in the Forum. Being in the same boat as so many others gives knowledge and understanding, a kind of comraderie (and a reason to follow my own advice!) It's great meeting new people here! The world is not as big as it used to be.
