Returning to diaTribe.
After a long hiatus, I’m back at diaTribe and explaining where the hell I disappeared to: “Diabetes is the dog I don’t like but I still have to be kind to. It barks and occasionally pees on the floor (or worse), it has chewed up at least ten of my shoes, and it jumps up… Read More

We don’t drink juice “for fun” in our house; it’s only for low blood sugars, considered almost as medicinal as the insulin hiding out in the butter compartment of our fridge. So when I came home with these juice boxes unintentionally, I was pissed. 35% less sugar?… Read More

Diabetes Pregnancy: Now and Then.
Managing diabetes and pregnancy in 2010 and then again in 2016 was a lot of hard work, and my story is similar to so many moms in the diabetes community:  a heavy focus on blood sugars, piles of doctor appointments, and dozens of tests for mom and baby.  Today’s management of diabetes and… Read More
