From NOPE to Yes.
My friend Susan is a huge part of the Postpartum Progress group, and on her Facebook feed I saw an article that she had shared.  I like to see what my friends are working in and sharing in and out of the diabetes space, so I clicked. Reading through the postpartum depression list had me… Read More

A Valentine For My Pancreas.
(A post from the past, but still relevant, as my pancreas remains lazy.) Oh rotting, feeble pancreas of mine, Won’t you be my Valentine? Won’t you wake from your long sleep And make some insulin, you creep? What makes you sit, all shaped like a wiener, Lazy and dull, with a pompous… Read More

Spare a Rose.
I’ve been writing this website for almost twelve years.  The support, advice, and camaraderie I’ve found in the diabetes online community has made the last twelve years with type 1 diabetes among my healthiest and most successful.  The supply of insulin carefully tucked away in my… Read More

Imagining Life Diabetes-Free.
I read an article today – Imagining Life Diabetes-Free.  This quote gave me pause:  “She said her mom equates living with diabetes to being ‘like a duck on a pond: it looks graceful and calm just swimming along, but below the surface, you don’t see the paddling, and all the… Read More

Looking to make a difference? Here’s how.
Scrolling through a newsfeed these days can be downright painful.  There’s not a lot of happiness or success being highlighted, and that can take a toll on your mental health.  What can you do to make a difference? There is something you can do.  Something you can do this minute.  And… Read More

Guest Post: DiabetesSisters Voices.
When it comes to research related to diabetes, I want to support those efforts as much as I can.  The power of sound data, plus patient stories, can move the needle on therapies, treatments, and empowerment for people living with diabetes.  Today, I’m lending my website to my dear friend… Read More

An Alarming Talk.
I had twenty minutes before my talk, so the double-down arrow didn’t unnerve me too much.  The TypeOneNation event in Connecticut had tables full of coffee, tea, juice, and other snacky things.  I grabbed a bottle of orange juice and downed it. “We’ll mic you up and introduce… Read More

I’m Not.
I’ve never had nightmares like this one before Problem is, when I wake, it’s still there and I’m floored Because every damn day there’s another news flash Showing me that some leaders just follow cash. I used to be iffy, and then was concerned. But panic is what this new paradigm’s… Read More

Weird Diabetes Dreams
I’m no stranger to having crazy dreams that tie in with diabetes, sometimes in wicked weird and scary ways.  A number of years ago, I recall dreaming that I was buried alive in a coffin and trying to escape when suddenly, a scary hybrid-freak spider appeared — complete with infusion set… Read More

Five Months.
To my Guy, Five months old!  (And I’m pretty sure I forgot to write you a letter at the four month mark, so here’s a quick high five for turning four months old a bit back, too.)  Five months ago, I was excitedly awaiting your arrival and folding piles of baby clothes.  Now, I am… Read More

Diabetes Day Off….

Makeshift Solution.
Arriving at the hotel last night, I realized my insulin pump needed a swap-and-refill.  I pulled out all the necessary supplies for a pump site change and dumped them onto the hotel bed. The little insulin bottle protector* I use keeps my insulin safe(r).  But it also covers the vial, so I… Read More

Rewind.
Put test strip into glucose meter. Prick finger. Apply blood. (Yawn as the meter counts down because it’s six in the morning and what’s sleep?) Look at screen. Blink. Pull strip out of the meter. Toss it into the meter back with all the other dead strips. Zip up meter bag. Brush teeth…. Read More

Attention all Time Travelers in 2017
This is a cautionary note to anyone who happens to be time-traveling to, from or during 2017…  Sorry to say, Time Traveling Explorers, this is real. Yep, it’s not a joke.   Even though the Chicago Cubs seriously did win the 2016 World Series (not kidding), this too is also a part… Read More

That Low, Though.
The low blood sugar hadn’t rooted firmly enough in my brain yet, but I knew something was wrong.  My feet were heavy against the treadmill belt, and I kept rewinding the show I was watching because the dialog wasn’t making much sense to me. BEEEEP!  BEEEEP!  BEEEEEEEP! hollered my… Read More

Dexcom Rash: Updated.
Frigging rash.  The issue first presented itself back in August 2012, leaving me scratching my head and itching my sensor sites for the next four years. At first, I tackled the problem by trying a pile of different barrier tapes, but the only one that brought about any semblance of relief was the… Read More

Review: Verio Flex Meter.
For years, my love for the One Touch Verio Sync meter knew no limits.  Despite a slightly MS-DOS interface that only showed me one result at a time and didn’t let me scroll back to other results unless I loaded them to the Reveal application, I loved this meter.  It was small, it was… Read More

“How is it going?”
#8220;Oh, I had so much trouble even getting out of the house when my babies were little.  You seem like you have it all together,” said the physical therapist as she massaged the tendons in my arm to alleviate the inflammation (thanks, tennis elbow as a result of playing … baby… Read More

Choosing UnConference
About a year ago I had a decision to make.  I could attend JDRF Government Day or I could attend The Diabetes UnConference.  They overlapped in 2016 so I could not attend both, as I had in past…    Visit my blog to read more…. Read More

Word Choice.

Pizza (A Christmas Poem).

Identifying barriers to transition of care
Changing from pediatric to adult care. I had a great pediatric diabetes care team and stayed with them as long as possible. I was in my mid-twenties still sitting in the waiting room with the little guys and gals. We passed the time by checking out Highlights Magazines and sliding shapes along… Read More

Participate in Research: Peds to Adult Endo Care.
As an adult with type 1 diabetes who, a hundred years ago, transitioned from pediatric care to adult care, I have a ton of interest in how that process takes place. There are so many factors that play into making that transition effective.  Does the child have a chance to talk one-on-one with… Read More

Digging Up Some Joy.
I have been trying to actively distance myself from the desire to dive deep into all the bad stuff that’s been going on lately.  Headlines get more and more distressing and humanity seems to have gone off the rails.  It feels gross to even watch the news because … well, the news is… Read More

Accountability.
We have a newly-minted kiddo.  That’s an established fact.  He is cleaned, fed, and loved all day long. Here’s the problem:  I’m not cleaned, fed, or loved all day long.  It’s embarrassing to admit that, but it’s the truth.  I’m struggling hard with… Read More
