Poetry as a stress reducing outlet sounds wonderful....do you ever write in a journal> or talk to friends who understand? Hope you can reduce your stress and depression...I can relate to both...but we'll make it.

Stress makes it hard. My control got much worse when my job got way more stressful and a couple of my best friends moved away. I hope you can get your A1Cs down and I hope I can get mine down too.
