Oh man, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks — Peter and I packed up our house and moved out of California, and have spent the past few weeks hopping from family member to family member, catching up with everyone before we head out on a big six-month adventure. It’s been fun, but stressful, and blogging has temporarily gone by the wayside. But no longer! I’ve got much more to say about the past few weeks of diabetes (that whole insulin experiment had a disastrous effect on my A1c) — but for now, I wanted to spread the word about a great event coming up in the San Francisco Bay Area — the annual diabetes symposium at UCSF. Here are the details:
