A Sobering Experience
#8220;Do you mind ringing out this orange juice first?”  I asked the lady who was working the cash register. “No problem,” and she went bip with the scanner against the bottle’s bar code while my Dexcom screamed BEEP BEEP BEEP! from my phone. I opened the bottle and downed… Read More

Thirty One Years with Diabetes.
When my diabetes marked it’s 25th birthday, I wrote a bulleted of stuff I’ve learned since diagnosis.  Another handful of years later, most of that list still holds up, with a few tweaks: Sometimes I can’t believe this is still A Thing.  That diabetes is still a thing that… Read More

Pockets.
I’ve been wearing an insulin pump since 2004 and even though I take pump vacations or go untethered every now and again, I prefer pumping over injections because it’s just EASIER to avoid high blood sugars if I’m wearing a pump. Yep.  That’s my jam.  It’s not the… Read More

Looking Back: Language and Diabetes.
In combing through some older posts, I found this one about language, and the words we use.  (Older post here)  How I talk about my diabetes influences how I feel about it, or how it can make me fee.  Which is why I wanted to revisit this post this afternoon, looking back to last year’s… Read More
