My Formative First Years of Coffee
I don’t remember the first cup of coffee that ever crossed my lips.  But I do remember when coffee first became “a thing” for me, something I craved and wanted to drink up. Simply put: It was all about Coffee & Conversation, and the two went hand-in-hand.  Everything came together at… Read More

Diabetes Dominator.
It’s nice to talk with other people who have diabetes.  It’s even better to laugh with other people who have diabetes, finding some levity in the diabetes moments that seem like they’re shuttling towards chaos.  And a few weeks ago, I had the chance to both talk and laugh (hard)… Read More

Panel: Challenges in Healthcare Leadership.
Yesterday, I took part in a panel discussion at the Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership Class of 2017 Convocation at Brown University (say that three times fast … I sure as hell can’t) and part of our discussion was about leadership in the healthcare space. My fellow panelists… Read More

Alabama Scratches.
(Instead of Alabama Shakes?  No?  Might be a bit of a stretch.) Over the last few days, my family and I were in Huntsville and then Birmingham, AL for a friend’s wedding.  The wedding was beautiful, the trip was fun, and mosquitoes have really taken a liking to me. Actually, that’s… Read More

Food Frustrations.
#8220;What frustrates you most as someone living with diabetes when eating out or attending an event that isn’t necessarily friendly to your dietary needs?  How do you overcome those challenges?” Diabetes makes food an out-of-the-gate loaded topic.  Food isn’t ever simply nourishment. … Read More

Low Blood Sugars, A No Hitter and the Michigan Move
For those who weren’t aware, I just made a move from Indiana back to Southeast Michigan.  It’s been an adventure packing everything up for the move, which just happened this past week. And I wrote about some of that fun over at DiabetesMine the other day.  Photo made by me, so I’m posting… Read More

Looking Back: Thank Goodness for Whiskey.
This is a post from February 2013 about the “diabetic diet” perceptions from back in the 1940′s, and when I came across it again this morning, I marveled once again at the power of whiskey.  See below for what old school diabetes diets were once in play. *   *   * I received… Read More

Untethered, After a Fashion.
Around 8.30 am, I took an injection of Levemir. At about 9 am, I switched my basal profile to “OTHER” and disconnected my insulin pump.  The OTHER profile has me at 0.025U basal rate per hour (as close to zero as I can get on my pump) but still holds all my other settings.  I […]The… Read More

Pulled Over.
I had just buckled the girls into their car seats and was ready to make the drive home from day camp, and as I turned the car on, I reflexively grabbed my Dexcom receiver to take a peek at my blood sugars before I started driving. Shit.  68 mg/dL with an arrow straight down and […]The post… Read More

No Lunchtime Bolus – A Story Thick With Irony
My phone starts to ring while I’m programming my meal bolus. I can see it’s a call I’d like to answer. But I’m more than halfway through my programming, and I have numbers in my head (blood sugar, carb count) that I can release forever … once I get the programming… Read More

Couched.
#8220;Can I lay here?”  I pointed to the almost-available section of the couch, where if Chris moved his legs juuuuust a little bit and Siah got her fat furry butt off the cushion, I could curl up and let my brain go quiet after a full day of writing. “Sure thing,” and Chris… Read More

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

A Practical Example of Overthinking My Diabetes

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
