Why Am I Tripping Myself Up? Five Weeks in, and I Can't Wait for Out

Five weeks ago I hurt my ankle. Really hurt it. I either tore a tendon or a ligament or had a severe stress fracture or something.

My friend sent this email around: "Taubes says that exercise makes us hungry for carbohydrates and that carbohydrates cause insulin secretion, which creates fat."

Your Insulin Pump Proposals: What You Want the Manufacturers to Change
Your Insulin Pump Proposals: What You Want the Manufacturers to Change

To conclude our pump survey, we asked you how you'd like to see pumping improved. As usual, you came up with a plethora of intriguing suggestions, although some were a bit more visionary than others: One reader said, "I wish someone would invent a device that could be waved over a meal, and it would display the number of carbs in the meal."

"I Just Injected 46 Units of the Wrong Insulin!"
"I Just Injected 46 Units of the Wrong Insulin!"

I have lived with type 2 diabetes for thirteen years, and I know very well how to take care of myself. In fact, I have it down to a routine. The flaw of a routine activity, however, is that it is so very routine: you go through the motions without thinking. And that, as I learned to my deep chagrin, can be dangerous.
