Holidays I Can Handle. It's the Rest of the Year That's Tough!
Diabetics are bombarded with so much information on how to deal with food during the holiday season:
Okay already - I can do it - I plan when I go out to a party and can stay in control while still enjoying myself. Why can't I transfer those skills for my every day eating? Logically, I suppose I can, but it takes conscious planning and thinking. Perhaps that will be my New Year's resolution. If I can be as successful during the year as I've been during the holidays, it will be a very good year.

2009 - What A Year!
2009 has been a rough year for America. We’ve watched our fellow citizens face enormous trials at all levels: the economy has hit lows not seen since the Great Depression of 1929; our military is stretched to its limits as we fight in multiple conflicts around the world; education has been shown to be greatly inadequate – especially, in the areas of math and science; and healthcare is facing challenges which could prove devastating – especially, for the uninsured, those with pre-existing conditions and those who have “chronic” conditions, like diabetes.
