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

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

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

Two and a Half.
To my son, Good lord you are a cute little person.  You make me stupid with your cute. (And I don’t care if I’m biased. I should be biased; I’m your mother.) I love your tiny hands and little toes and kissable nose and the consistent mohawk that your hair enjoys becoming.  You… Read More

Diabetes Month: Ask Me About My Diabetes.
At 4 am, when I woke up to hang out with my little apple jack to feed him, my blood sugar was 108 mg/dL.  He ate and we both went back to bed.  When I woke up at 6.30 am, my blood sugar was somehow 221 mg/dL.

Second-time Motherhood.
This whole mom thing is a little easier, in some respects, the second time around.  And it’s simultaneously harder by a frigging long shot. It’s easier because my son’s arrival wasn’t as jarring as his sister’s.  Going from no kids to one kid was like WHOA.  Going… Read More

Thanks, Diabetes!
Feeling bummed about the bullshit of diabetes?  Me, too.  I needed to find a few things to appreciate about this disease before I tried to throw it off the deck.  So here we go.  A quick round of “Thanks, Diabetes!” I had to get my flu shot two weeks ago.  The needle was big and… Read More
