Hi, my name is Arlene M. Skinner and I’m a diabetic. It’s still up in the air which type. All I know is I am learning the ins and outs of a diabetic lifestyle. I left the hospital a bit scared of what to eat, having to inject insulin into my belly, and how different my life would be from this point. As the days went, I began to realize that my life isn’t much different, I just became a little more aware.
Since my trip to the hospital, I found that a few more people in my life were affected by diabetes than I thought and a few of my friends have at least thought about getting screened as a result. How amazing is that? Having enjoyed blogging for my real estate blog, I decided I need to blog about this experience not only for myself but maybe those around me. Thanks to my good friends and creative masterminds, Susan Anderson and Katherine Anderson, “Cut the B.S.” was born.
So, B.S. stands for blood sugar of course! I wanted the blog not to be about just living with diabetes, but living it up with diabetes. I wanted to have fun with this blog because that is who I am. There are enough serious websites out there about diabetes and I’ll share those along the way. I want us to explore ways to cut the blood sugar and lead healthier lifestyles. I hope to help those who might be going through the same things and hopefully learn from others who have been through this longer than me. Maybe this can help someone who isn’t diabetic take steps to prevent it. Sometimes, I hope to just be able to vent about the tough days. This process isn’t easy but it hasn’t killed me either so I must be getting stronger. If you have any ideas or want to contribute somehow, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it. And so continues our journey!
