Diabetes Blog Week: Language and Diabetes.
Language and Diabetes:  There is an old saying that states “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”. I’m willing to bet we’ve all disagreed with this at some point, and especially when it comes to diabetes. Many advocate for the importance of using… Read More

The Thin, Red Line.
For the last few days, I’ve been sick.  Sicker than I’ve been in several years – a man cold morphing into a respiratory infection with an agenda, evolving into nausea that rivaled all my morning sickness put together, crashing into having to visit the doctor and cancel a trip to… Read More

Eleventy and #AccessMatters.
My blog turns eleven years old today. I could say so much about the benefits of connecting with my peers and finally, after years, realizing I was not alone with diabetes.  I could fill a blog for eleven – perhaps twelve? – years with that sort of appreciation.  It’s been an… Read More

Today, in response to spending the day fighting traffic for yet another installment of “how long will I be in the waiting room?” at the doctor’s office, I’m revisiting a post from 2012 about love, PWDs, and permission.  It still blows my mind that this book was published,… Read More

Prebolusing the Sh*t Out of Things.
