My name is Reverend Watts from the book, Forever Promised. Nurse Geri Lanham asked if I had any ideas that would help the diabetic patient.
Since humans first started writing, men and women have noted thier thoughts and personal feelings in some type of journal. It is a common past time to keep a diary or letters from loved ones here in 1888. Where would the biographer be without them?
Dr. O'Neal told me that with tight control a diabetic in 2012 can tell that illness is about to strike from glucose readings long before the body feels achy, feverish or tired.
Journaling may feel like a busman's holiday with all the logs a diabetic is suppose to take, but it can have a positive outcome. Not only is it a stress reliever but it can become an important reminder of what we did right or wrong. In time of tight control you are listing exactly the things you did and in what order. When glucose is a little wacky you can return to that time and see what has changed. Not only for your diabetes but other medical issues as well.
If you held control during a holiday, paste a picture that reminds you of it, or a picture of that child that melts your heart.
By looking back you can start to recreate lifestyle choices that worked in the past.
Cheers, Reverend Michael Watts
