He says. She says. D says.  Who gets the last word in a couple with diabetes?

Refresh. Revive. Revitalize.

Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm ― Samuel Taylor Coleridge As days shorten and stores fill with Halloween treats, it's easy to reach for candy when you need a pick-me-up. Instead, try these sugar-free ways to revitalize. Walk around the block. It sounds like exactly what you don't want to do when your energy is flagging.
