There is this song: “it’s got to beeeeeeeee perfect”, and I sing it in my head a lot. I am not a perfectionist in the sense that I can keep trying until I succeed, far from it. If it ain’t… Continue Reading →

Even the best make mistakes

As the sunrays cascade over my face, I hope my third attempt to write this blog will be successful. Because how do you write about the biggest mistake in your diabetes career? About a morning filled with hypo’s without a… Continue Reading →
