Diabetic Pregnancy: Third Trimester.
Ten weeks left until the little man arrives, which means I’m in the third trimester and ready to fast forward through the summer.  FAST.  FORWAAAAAAAAARD!! Swelling.  So far, so good.  I don’t have any swelling to speak of, which is a far cry from my first pregnancy, when I was in… Read More

Insulin for Syrians #insulin4all

Weak Away.
I accidentally took a week off from blogging, but there are reasons.  And they involve dinosaurs.  Bullet list, because that’s the only way to organize what’s swirling in my brain?  Yeah, let’s do that. Last week started strong – a good visit to Beth Israel Deaconess… Read More

Free Shower.
Internet LOLZ suggest I title this post “Free Shower Be Like …” but I refuse to do that.  My dad, and every English teacher I’ve ever had, would throw things at my head. Instead, I’ll just assert that diabetes-device free showers are totally akin to this: AKA the… Read More

Reimbursements.

Fifteen Minutes, Fifteen Grams.
I just needed fifteen minutes, after fifteen grams of carbs. “I can’t go with you, because I need to eat something else and wait for my blood sugar to come up.  You guys can go without me and come right back, if you want?” The sentences sounded soft and measured.  Sure, go for… Read More

First Month of My Insulin Pump Break
A month ago, I decided to step away from my Medtronic insulin pump.  This was long overdue, a needed change that I needed to revisit in order to get my diabetes back in line. Yet, I had been putting this off and it wasn’t until Medtronic’s business decision to screw with patient choice and… Read More

Blame the Hormones.
I’m still angry that the UHC/Medtronic issue hasn’t been resolved.  There is/was a ton of discussion about how this is not a decision that takes patient needs and preferences into account but instead seems to cater to what’s best for business needs. “Resolved” would… Read More

It’s Just a Blood Sugar Check.
Checking my blood sugar takes less than 30 seconds.  Truly – upcapping the bottle of test strips, inserting the strip, pricking my finger tip, squeezing blood onto the absorption pad on the test strip, waiting the five second countdown of my meter to see the result up on the screen, and then… Read More
