Expecting the Unexpected
There was a diabetes day more than a decade ago that hit me like a ton of bricks.  OK, maybe that’s the first like right there… when I said “diabetes day.” As if, every single day of my life isn’t a “diabetes day” where my pancreas isn’t doing what it should and I must take on that role and… Read More

“Don’t you all know each other?”
A few weeks ago, we were in Venice and I almost walked right into the canal because I saw a lady with an insulin pump on her waist and a CGM sensor on her arm, speaking Italian to the shopkeeper and casually wearing her pancreas on her hip. The flurried rush of emotions – excitement,… Read More

What to Work On.
I’ve gotten lazy in my diabetes management.  And I’m not proud of it.  My recent A1C result was still in my goal range but not where it was a few months ago, and I’d love to return to that level of control.  Thing is, I’ve gone soft when it comes to following through on… Read More

Body Wars.
The Good:  Birdy’s seventh birthday party went off without a hitch.  The cake was made, the guests were fed, the bouncy castle was a source of glee for kids and adults alike, and my daughter spent the day red-faced from jumping, laughing with her friends, and covered in cake frosting…. Read More

What I Did On My Bloggy Vacation.
Whoa – this was the longest unintentional blog break I’ve taken in ages. Maybe ever. And it’s not like I didn’t have diabetes-related things to say or conversations I wanted to contribute to. I just didn’t feel like writing. Which is weird. I usually feel like writing. After the… Read More
