Running the Gamut of Emotions.
In my diabetes life, emotions are right up there with insulin and food as influencers of blood sugar management.  And I wish it wasn’t so, because stress and excitement are hard to “plan.”  (Replace those actual quotation marks with finger quotes, because they fit the bill a bit… Read More

What is it about some people that just grab our hearts and don’t let go?  There are just some people and some stories that have that way about them.    For me, and for many others, Kycie’s story is one of those.    I’m not sure why exactly.  But I think it’s… Read More

Don’t Go Shopping While Low
My wife’s understanding and patience with me (and my diabetes) seems to know no bounds, and I’m so grateful. It hit me about halfway through my shopping list at Walmart; that feeling of my blood sugar dropping fast and the anxiety of lots of insulin on board (relatively). A quick glance… Read More

On Saturday July 11, 2015, a post appeared on Facebook that shook the diabetes community and beyond. Five-year-old Kycie Terry, diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes less than six months ago, had passed away.

Traveling With Diabetes: Planes, Cars and Disney Monorails
Traveling with diabetes is never exactly easy!  I think diabetes should count as another person because of all the supplies that you obsessively over pack need for your trip!    We are, by no means, travel experts.  We do, however, travel somewhat frequently.  So I… Read More

Etiquette and the Continuous Glucose Monitor – Looking…
Earlier this year, Dexcom released the new SHARE platform for their newest continuous glucose monitor (CGM), the G4. Thanks to SHARE, you can now choose to have as many as five “followers,” who will have your CGM data streamed to their iPhones in real-time. Uh oh. In the abstract, this… Read More

the hidden disease
type 1 diabetes is so often difficult to explain because there are no physical symptoms. honestly, this makes me really angry sometimes, because if people could SEE it, they would be able to understand. instead, i’m left trying to use words to explain what’s going on, and i’m actually not that… Read More

OMG Nick Jonas … with a Sizeable Shout-Out to Dexcom.
I can’t hear the name “Nick Jonas” without immediately hearing the then-teenaged cousins in my family clutching their invisible pearls and screaming, “OMGNICKJONAS” as if it was one word. In my mind, I think of Nick Jonas as a kind and smart … not because I have… Read More

Trapped in a TV Show
A friend posted a question online the other day that got me thinking.  Certainly not a new question, as it’s been going around online for years.  My answer: Well, it depends…  Mostly, on the rules.  Just how exactly am I going to be trapped in TV? Will this be like the movie… Read More

The familiar is comforting no matter how bad it is
I go through life with anxiety. Some days or hours (or weeks or months) it’s more prominent than others.  I go through phases where I feel like the mastermind boss with anxiety firmly squished beneath my thumb.
