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”.

Signing off
This is weird. I don’t know what to say in a last blog post, because it makes it seem like a black hole is going to open up and suck me into it once I hit “publish.” (I really hope that doesn’t happen, because I still need to shower. I’d hate to be stuck in some… Read More

Goodnight Blog
A parody of Goodnight Moon, a very lovely book that my son loves, written by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Clement Hurd. And please forgive me for the excessive posting this week, as I’m just getting it out of my system. ???? See you tomorrow for the last round. In the world wide… Read More

Guest Post: Oh Baby!
Back when I was thinking about having a baby, I wanted to find more stories – any stories – about women with T1D who were successfully managing pregnancy. Which is why, whenever I find those stories, I want to amplify them. Becoming a mother is the greatest achievement of my life and… Read More

Diabetes Shorthand
Last night, my oldest kid and I went out for a mommy-and-daughter dinner date. Our waitress was a student at the local university, and very nice. She took our order (“Wow, your kid chooses broccoli over french fries! I’m impressed!”) and then turned to go back to the waitstaff… Read More

How About a Last Myabetic Giveaway?
I’ve known the creator of Myabetic, Kyrra Richards, for a long time, and seeing the successful business she’s worked tirelessly to create makes me beyond happy for her. I’m also really proud to be the source code for one of her namesake bags. She’s awesome. As things draw to… Read More

A Life Worth Writing Down
#8220;What are you reading?” “A book about writing,” I said, showing her the cover. “A book about writing … you know, I’d like to write a book.” She put the coffee carafe down on the edge of the breakfast table. “I have seen a lot of things, and I think… Read More

Travelbetes: Wherever EuGo Giveaway!
Last week, we were away for my daughter’s April break, visiting South Carolina for the first time. (Our original plan was to visit Copenhagen but that whole deal was derailed by the grounding of the Max 8 planes … long story made much, much shorter: we ended up in Charleston, SC for the… Read More

April Diabetes Jumble
No time for a “proper post” (which is loosely defined as a blog post with a definitive beginning and end and also usually a point). But lots on my mind today, so resorting to a bullet list in order to let these thoughts out: Some of the group text threads on my phone this week are among… Read More

Why the DOC Makes Me Happy
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve written about the importance of the diabetes online community. Topic-wise, it’s one of my favorite themes to revisit. And I’m absolutely positive as to WHY. When I first started blogging, I didn’t know other people who had… Read More

Under the Influence
My parents made me check my blood sugar before getting behind the wheel when I was a teenager. If I wanted the keys, I had to be responsible without fail, and I had their trust unless I broke the rules. No exceptions. No excuses. I started driving in 1995, so my means for blood sugar checks were… Read More

Evidence-Based Hope
Evidence-based hope. I can get on board with that. Check out this really great video from the TCOYD team, featuring Steve and Bill talking about all the reasons we can feel hopeful as PWD. <3… Read More

Friendly Robot Vampire
Earlier in the week, I wrote up my thoughts on the Freestyle Libre 14 Day system and also promised perspectives from a colleague who is using the system who has type 2 diabetes. Today is that day! Thanks to Barry Campbell for visiting SixUntilMe today, and I’m grateful for his generosity with… Read More

Sick Days
It’s been a day. It’s been a week, honestly, because the Pukes have been making their way through my kids, and it’s been a no-school, workus interruptus sort of adventure with lots of hand washing and flat ginger ale and Pedialyte. My washing machine has earned a gold star this… Read More

Wouldn’t It Be Great?
Poking around in that box that’s been hiding in every iteration of “home” for the better part of a decade, I found another writing sample from what looks like third grade. (No date on the piece of paper, but third grade is where we learned cursive, so this is either the end of… Read More

The Friday Six on a TUESDAY what is happening
Hi there.  How are you? … No, really.  How ARE you? I’m good.  Thanks for checking in to ask. Keeping it casual here in my digital house because I don’t have the desire for carefully crafted sentences and overly oppressive narrative structure.  Just felt like writing and… Read More

What To Do With Old Diabetes Tech
I’m at a loss.  In cleaning out the diabetes cupboard (aka the shelves dedicated to diabetes stuff in my pantry),  I found over a decade’s worth of Dexcom receivers. And old glucose meters. And the exciting-at-the-time-yet-now-obsolete Dexcom Share dock. What’s a girl to do with… Read More

Spare a Rose
Earlier this week, I was sick again. A very clingy cold with high snot-producing capability and lethargy like whoa took up residence in my face and chest, and my blood sugars did not respond kindly. As a result, I spent the better part of six hours between 260 – 330 mg/dL on Tuesday. Being… Read More

Is There Another Way to Open These Boxes?
I tend to be very organized when it comes to my diabetes supplies, but there are marked exceptions: For some reason I always tear into a new box of reservoirs or infusion sets like a caffeinated squirrel. I mean, is there another way to open these boxes?… Read More

On the Loom
In prepping for a chat I helped facilitate for the team at The Patient Revolution, I came across this quote in Victor’s book: These words really build a visual around the effort of diabetes management. There’s a tremendous amount of work that goes on behind-the-scenes of diabetes… Read More

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
I’ve been using the Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor since April, and over the last few months, I’ve settled into a pattern with this new system.  But there have been some hiccups alongside some victories.  And that’s what this post is about, ya’ll. THE INSPIRING:… Read More

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
