Gift Ideas for People with Diabetes.
What do you get for the person who has everything … except a working pancreas?  Here are six (until me) of my favorite d-related things: Medical alert jewelry.  Looking for medical alert jewelry that isn’t clunky or ugly? I’ve always loved this simple, classic bracelet from… 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

Muted.
Ahh bullet points.  Ye be the only(e) way I can process things at the moment. I don’t have a lot to say over here lately, and there are a dozen different reasons for that.  One is that the new baby kiddo keeps me extremely busy, what with his cluster feeding and chatty ways, and also… Read More

World Diabetes Day 2016.
It’s World Diabetes Day.  And how do I feel, after 30 years with type 1 diabetes under my belt (and above my belt and in every organ and all over my face)? LUCKY.  Effing lucky.  Because according to the demands of my body, I should not be here, but because of science and access, I… 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. What the hell happened?!  Usually, breastfeeding makes my […]Diabetes Month: Ask… Read More

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

Playing Darts
For the past five months, I’ve been unconnected to my insulin pump and have been doing daily injections and inhaled insulin to keep my blood sugars in check.   All is well on that front, and at this point I have no plans to go back to insulin pumping in the near future.  As some may… Read More

Full Body.
The scar on my lower abdomen is close to healed, after six weeks of careful care.  The incision is evidence of the arrival of my son, the same place my daughter escaped from.  The skin above the incision is still swollen from months of pregnancy and oddly puckered due to surgery.  It’s… Read More

What Happens to Your Brain When You Don’t Sleep.
There’s a little boy who lives in my house now and he seems to likes us.  He likes his big sister and he likes his mom and dad and he likes the cats.  He likes socks.  And fluffy blankets when we go on walks.  And he loves taking naps while the sun shines through the living […]What… Read More

Bliss Balls.
Do you know what bliss balls are?  I had never heard of them before.  There’s a coffee shop near the beach out here that sells these bliss ball things.  They look like desserty meatballs and are kept in a glass jar near the cash register.  If you’re sleep deprived, they look like… Read More

Mystery Date.
There was a board game marketed to girls back in the 60’s that resurfaced again in the 90’s, and that’s when I met Mystery Date.  It was a silly game where you tried to assemble an outfit for a date and then you opened the little plastic door to see if your outfit matched that… Read More

An Aching Tooth and Diabetes Stigma

Which Don To Respect?
Remember how I used to occasionally reference the “Don of Rage Bolusing?”  You know, that was mostly a term of endearment for my insulin pump.
