Kerri – “Six Until Me”
Born in 1980, Kerri Morrone Sparling was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a child in 1986. For much of her life, Kerri was the only diabetic she knew. In an effort to connect with others and at the same time share her own story, Kerri started the blog Six Until Me in May of 2005. She noticed that at the time, there were very few diabetic bloggers online, especially with type 1. Committed to sharing her story, Kerri’s blog has grown into one of the most popular diabetic blogs on the web. Today, she is among a vast group of diabetics sharing their stories on the internet. Visit Kerri’s Blog: “Six Until Me”.

Free Shower
#160; I love free showers. They are rare bird moments, but pulling off due-to-be changed pump infusion sets and ratty CGM sensors, then stepping into a hot shower and being able to scrub skin with reckless abandon is AMAZING. Free showers.  See also:  yaaaaaas…. Read More

Hypersensitive: A Look at the Dexcom G6, Several Months Later

Beyond Diabetes
I used to wait on that cure. Not openly, but quietly. Every time a five year mark come and go and I’d be confused and feeling like my disappointment was silly, yet pervasive. After a few years, I stopped feeling bad about it. And after several decades, I stopped thinking about it at all. My… Read More

Goals
Goals: Wake up. Avoid shit that makes me feel crummy. Surround myself with people who make me feel like I’m understood. Drink just enough coffee to keep my eyelids pinned open but not so much that the room feels filled with bees. Check in on my blood sugars. Care about those numbers. Care… Read More

Diabetes Cost of Living
It is humbling to look in the butter compartment of my fridge and see insulin.  It’s necessary.  And I’m grateful. The out of pocket cost is upwards of $380 per bottle without insurance, and making sure our family has insurance coverage is our biggest worry in regular rotation. When… Read More

The Bright Side
My daughter, randomly, asked me what a seizure was. (Turns out someone had talked about it at school as a result of a student with epilepsy.) We talked about it, and then she asked if diabetes could cause seizures.  She doesn’t ask me complicated questions about the longterm effects of diabetes… Read More

Flu Shots are Important
I get a flu shot every year.  The practice was encouraged when I was pregnant with my daughter back in 2009/2010 and I have carried it through since.  My whole family gets the flu shot.  We do this every year, even though Birdy hates it and the little Guy is starting to become wary of visits to… Read More

Rewind: What Brings Me Down … and Then Back Up
Diabetes has made my body broken in ways I don’t readily admit, but I am sometimes forced to acknowledged.  People talk about my daughter’s chances of developing the disease and they always give me what they think is a comforting comment – “At least it would be the devil you know,” –… Read More

What Helped Me as a Kid with Type 1 Diabetes
I was diagnosed with diabetes in second grade, so I’ve had this disease along for essentially all of the available rides in my almost 40 years.  From 1986 onward, I’ve experienced everything from field trips to fights with my parents about boyfriends to learning to drive to college to… Read More

Tode Moisturizers: A Review
I received these products at no cost to me, shipped out by the Tode PR team.  They wrote to me after reading the post from a few months ago about the split fingertips, and while they did say that a positive review would be great, it wasn’t a condition of receiving the products.  This is an… Read More

Not Advocacy
#8220;What is that, on your arm?” Attempting to embrace the bathroom advocacy, I told the lady I have type 1 diabetes.  “And this is an insulin pump.  This part of the device holds the insulin,” – point to the black pump clipped to my bathing suit strap – “and… Read More

It’s Complicated.
This month, in the most recent edition of The PLAID Journal, I contributed a piece about the complicated questions we get about diabetes, and how our answers are just as complicated. “Is diabetes hard? Yes. And no. There are times when I get mired in some of the tougher moments of diabetes,… Read More
