What Does the DOC Mean to You?
This video is one of the last ones I did for Animas, but it’s one of my favorites because it features some of the friendliest faces in the Diabetes Online Community. Much love to the folks who offered to share their perspectives on the diabetes community, and thanks for being part of the… Read More

Lucky.
Low blood sugars have become moments that scare me more now than they did when I was younger, mostly because the symptoms of my lows have all but disappeared until I’m deep into the 40’s. It’s shocking to my system to have that gentle lag and foggy confusion suddenly open into the abyss of a… Read More

My Cure, Your Cure . . . .
If there is one thing I know for sure about diabetes, it’s that it isn’t one size fits all.  Some people do great on pumps, others flourish with MDIs.  Foods that spike me may not necessarily spike…    Visit my blog to read more…. Read More

Hello Again, Mr. Mumbles
Several years had gone by since the last time Mr. Mumbles visited our house, and quite a bit has changed. But one thing that hasn’t is the fact that once again, Mr. Mumbles met Mr. Diabetes in way that wasn’t too much fun.  One day after my 37th birthday, I found myself in the dental surgeon’s… Read More

It’s All About That Rose, That Rose … So Spare It.
Today, people will be watching a football game and cheering on their favorite team (and my mother will be in a sports fan version of mourning because the Patriots are not playing).  I want to remind you that it’s all fun and Big Games until someone loses an islet. (Yes, another diabetes… Read More

Airplane Site Changes: A Grost.
Earlier this week, I flew to San Diego to visit with the team at Tandem and brainstorm some plans for 2016.  It was a quick trip (managed to land right when that weird storm was picking up speed – made for a very exciting landing and also reinforced my hatred of flying), but a productive… Read More

Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms
(and a game show!) with Kerri, Scott & Bennet. I like podcasts. I listen to them as often as I can and I feel blessed that there are so many great diabetes podcasts to choose from. I actually have a diabetes podcast to thank for bringing a very important person into my life. George Simmons would… Read More

Spare a Rose 2016
From February 1 – 14, the diabetes online community is hosting our annual Spare A Rose campaign.  You remember that one, right?  The one where you send eleven roses instead of twelve on Valentine’s Day, taking the value of that saved rose (averaged out to $5) and donating that to the… Read More

What Improves My Healthcare Experience.
What would improve the healthcare experience for me, as a patient with multiple health conditions?  I’m glad you asked.  (You did actually ask, right?)  A few things would help move things forward.  Here’s a thought-purging because I happened to have coffee: Billing processes that… Read More

Perspective.
Perspective came slamming in two weeks ago when I heard that a friend’s young daughter had died.  She was four years old.  My friend’s grief was palpable and touched the face of everything that morning.  Our hearts ached for her loss; it was impossible to find a single word that even scraped… Read More

Mountains + Valleys + Mittelgebirge of Diabetes
A new day begins.  All is smooth, as I coast along the waters and taking in as much of my surroundings as possible as I go about my daily business.   My waters get rocky and I make a dash to the coastline, journeying onto land and venturing toward a spot that’s somewhere between a short… Read More

Gadgets and Gizmos.
Getting dressed this morning and trying to shove an insulin pump and a Dexcom sensor and not map the silhouette of my dress with pump tubing was an exercise in frustration, and that song from The Little Mermaid kept going through my head. “I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty …… Read More

Hypo Perspectives.
Last night my low alarm went off like a siren in my bedroom, partly because I had hooked my phone up to a bluetooth speaker to (successfully) help amplify the Dexcom alarms, but mostly because my blood sugar was 50 mg/dL. How the alarm didn’t wake up my daughter (clad in Captain American… Read More

Small Victories.
My only resolution for 2016 was to write more. Not necessarily here on my website, but wherever the words seem to come most comfortably. I have a few fiction ideas I’m fleshing out here at home, but blogging has always served as a way to unknot some of the thoughts in my head, mostly centered… Read More

Snack, not Snake.
I feel proud of my kid. And she feels proud of herself, too, it seems. Found in my daughter's "kindness journal" from school, where they are encouraged to write things they do that are kind. #diabeticmommy #diabetes A photo posted by Kerri Sparling (@sixuntilme) on Jan 5, 2016 at 6:20am… Read More

A Fonder Heart.
Spending a few weeks offline was nice.  Good for me.  Removed that panic from, “What can I write today?” and replaced it with, “What can I do today?”  Stepping away from my website for the bulk of December was in efforts to shake the dust off my advocacy and outreach efforts by allowing… Read More

New Year, New Disclosure.
Disclosures are important, so I’m making a new one today, and my disclosure policy has been updated accordingly.  There are some big changes on deck for 2016, with the first one being a change in some of the companies I’m partnering with.  Which is why I’ve decided to end my contract with… Read More

Holiday Break.
Ever need a short break in order to stay in it for the long haul? I’m doing one of those. I’m taking off from Six Until Me until January, so I can refocus at home (see also: watch Buddy the Elf at least a dozen times) and come at 2016 with renewed drive. In the […]The post Holiday… Read More

Eyeball Look-and-See.
I expected the traffic. That’s a given, driving from southern Rhode Island up to Boston.  Even in the middle of the day, there’s traffic.  Aiming to make it for a 3.30 pm eye dilation appointment at the Joslin eye clinic means leaving at 1.15 pm in order to take the insane drive into… Read More
