Keep that blood sugar under control. What has helped me to have a good attitude about having diabetes is staying extremely active. I'm insulin dependent, so my diabetes is quite different from your diabetes, but the best advice I can give you is never never never ever leave the house without a full pocket of candy, lol. It will save your life!

I can't stress enough how important that is. I had an unexpected drop after leaving the house for a dogwalk around the block. Luckily, somebody actually answered the door and gave me some soda and Halloween candy. Otherwise, I would have passed out.
