This Halloween- Express Your Self


I've looked in vain as of late for pics of me as a kid – especially one in particular. A picture taken from the Halloween when I was in 4th grade - my first Halloween (and a year to the day) since my initial diagnoses. I was making up for lost time and was dressed as Princess Tiger Lilly. I'm holding a full size Hershey bar, and my red feather was hanging wrong side down and it brushed against my check.

I distinctly remember saying "Happy Halloween- AND HOW" at every door I knocked on. And YES, I came up with that line on my own! I was SO happy to be out celebrating with my friends.

I walked for miles that night, ate chocolate and relished the fact that I was out with the living on the night celebrating the dead.

I can’t find the pic to save my life. I can’t find many of my kid pics, and I’m a little nervous about that. But I will.

Anyway, I did manage to find a pic of me dressed as Madonna one Halloween, (she’s my Patron Saint of Fabulousness) and I love her.

Anyway, Diabetes or not: “Express yourself” (Madonna pun intended) and have a blast tonight, no matter how you choose to celebrate the evening!

Express Yourself~

Rejoice in the fact that Halloween allows you and or your child to have fun and be creative.

So my friends:

  1. GO FOR IT
  2. Test, and test often
  3. Bolus accordingly
  4. Indulge in both the chocolate and the fantasy of the holiday
  5. HAVE FUN!

I thought of you yesterday at my first pump appointment. Staff in the building were dressed up for Halloween. I told the CDE about your d-day.

Total Madonna, Go Girl! I wondered how you handle Count Chocula Day.
