Exercise, Diabetes (Type 2) & Low Blood Sugar

It’s a great summer beer and a nice change of pace from searching for the perfect traditional IPA. I also find things have been better from the can recently.

Although one of the major themes here will be alternative mindsets, TIAWTL was meant to be a collaborative effort that after almost a year didn’t come to fruition.

Through, Nurse David (a working title) I will chronicle my adventure into population heath nursing and all the other interests I have to balance work and life. In no particular order, some of those interests are flower gardening, soccer, music/concerts, shoes, and deviating from any societal norm that doesn’t lead to personal fulfillment.
