A (Hair)brush with Disaster
I always assumed it would diabetes that took my eyeballs out.  Never thought it would be a thumbnail and a hairbrush. Seven years ago, my sweet little Bird accidentally stuck her thumb into my right eye and tore off a sliver of my cornea.  The injury has resurfaced a bunch of annoying times and… Read More

Silent Night
I read a post on Facebook this morning about a mom who spent a few hours by her kid’s bedside, monitoring a low blood sugar and keeping the snacks at the ready.  I thought about my own mom, who carried the bulk of the diabetes burden so that I didn’t have to, and how life felt normal… Read More

“Nice pump.”
#8220;Can I please have an iced coffee?  No sweetener, please,” I said to the girl behind the counter at the coffee shop.  The snow was falling fast outside, but she expertly kept her eyebrows steady at my request for an almost frozen beverage. “Sure thing.”  Her hands deftly… Read More

Peer-to-Peer Superpowers
Starting this blog back in 2005 wasn’t for page views or for advocacy efforts, to be honest.  It was because I didn’t know any other people with diabetes, and I felt alone.  I was the only twenty-something I knew who shot up before breakfast, the only one with a bottle of juice in the… Read More

Finish Line Vision: An Interview with Jay Hewitt

Replacement Parts
This piece was written back in 2013 about a different insulin pump, but the song remains the same:  pumping insulin alleviates some of my diabetes mental load and makes living with this disease a little mellower.  I mean, I could “wash the dishes by hand,” but it’s so much nicer… Read More
