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”.

Do More Good.
It’s World Diabetes Day.  YAY!  And buried amongst the bits of distressing-as-hell news crap out there will be articles about diabetes. Casual mentions of this monster that lives under our bed (and that we feed occasionally). And tomorrow, the world’s attention will twist to the next crisis…. Read More

Diabetes Month: The One About Anxiety
I’ve had some anxiety flare ups in the past. Like in college, when I’d break out in hives across my abdomen, tied directly to the more stressful moments – when exams were up, when I was working the early am breakfast shift five days a week and then going to class, when my parents… Read More

Check Even When You Don’t Want To
Quick PSA:  Check your blood sugar, even if you don’t want to.  Even when you know the result is going to be potentially crummy. Knowledge is power. Felt high – like for sure high.  And I wanted to correct my BG back into range but I needed to know what the number was, first.  So… Read More

Zoodles for your Face
I had ten minutes to make something to eat while the little Guy napped and before a slate of conference calls began, and the zucchinis sitting on my kitchen counter were judging me for not cooking them yet.  So I made zoodles. I can’t cook.  And so can you! INGREDIENTS one large zucchini… Read More

Guest Post: My Sister Has Diabetes
A diabetes diagnosis doesn’t just affect the life of the person who is diagnosed … diabetes, for better or for worse, is a family affair.  I didn’t think about the influence of diabetes on my siblings until I was older, and I wish we has talked about it at home more.  Which is… Read More

Do You Hate Diabetes?
I asked some friends on Facebook if they hated diabetes, and the answers* were as varied as the folks responding: “I hate it, the hassle, and the complications but I do not hate the growth amd strength I’ve achieved or the family I’ve gained because of it.” “I don’t… Read More

In the KNOW … Foods.
I was asked to review a box of KNOW foods, and I did that.  Forced to try waffles and muffins?  Twist my damn arm. Actually, I didn’t do it alone, as the review process became a neighborhood taste-testing party.  We made a chart.  It was a thing.  Check out the review over at A Sweet… Read More

Creature of Travel Habits.
In going through receipts to submit for work travel last week, I realized I had one or two for the exact same order:  iced coffee and a banana. Maybe more than one or two. I’m sensing a theme. Turns out this traveler with diabetes defaults on the regular to the same snack. Which is fine… Read More

GTFO.

Thirty One Years with Diabetes.
When my diabetes marked it’s 25th birthday, I wrote a bulleted of stuff I’ve learned since diagnosis.  Another handful of years later, most of that list still holds up, with a few tweaks: Sometimes I can’t believe this is still A Thing.  That diabetes is still a thing that… Read More
