himalayan hemoglobin~

so i had my first post-diagnostic hemoglobin A1c this week.  (This measures a 3 month average of your blood glucose 'saturation', essentially.)  It should be between 6 and 7 (at the most.)  
mine was 7.8.  
whewhooooo!  i'm two months into being a type 1 and i cut my number in half.  
oh, by the way, it was 15 when it was taken at the ER two months ago.  
oh me oh my.
anywho, i was pretty excited that things were balancing so fast.   i'm even allowed to run again because they don't think i'll 'exhaust my endocrine system.'  

oi ve!  sometimes it feels like all my parts are on an assembly line being talked about by that guy in the back office who drinks tar-coffee.
