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”.

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

Dia-Be-Tees Giveaway
Yeah, another giveaway.  But HELL YEAH because giveaways are awesome because they support the diabetes community, signal boost a small business, and provide something diabetes-nice to counteract the diabetes-crumbs that can bring you down.  A little lift is good. Today, I’ve partnered with… Read More

Just a Little Suga’: An Interview with Ariel
I can’t remember how I stumbled onto Just a Little Suga’, but after reading Ariel Lawrence’s take on Black Panther, I was taken by her message, her writing style, and her honesty.  Ariel stopped by to chat here on SixUntilMe today, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to… Read More

Casualty Girl Giveaway
Monica Vesci, creator of Casualty Girl, was on a mission to wrangle in her diabetes … stuff. “When traveling, or leaving the house, I always have this inner dialogue asking myself if I have all my diabetes shit with me. On a whim, I thought it would be fun to add the phrase to a carry-all… Read More

You’ve been sick your whole life?
Yesterday, I was at a meeting where the audience was decidedly not a diabetes one.  And in explaining my experiences with diabetes, I had to give an overview of what type 1 diabetes is and how long I’ve been living with it. “I was diagnosed at the age of seven.  It will be 32 years… Read More

Almost Two
My guy, Personality?  You have it.  And strong will? Oh shit, you have that, too. Kid, you’re a hot ticket (as my grammie used to say).  You are deeeeep into what some might call The Terrible Twos and I would call them that but you’re not yet two and you’re also not terrible… Read More

Two Months of Victoza
I stopped taking Victoza.  But I’d revisit it if necessary.  Here’s the personal experience, not medical advice, talk to your doctor, etc. lowdown: WHY I STARTED ON VICTOZA. After having my son (he’ll be two in August), I experienced postpartum anxiety.  It was next level for… Read More

Dexcom G6: A Few Weeks In
It’s been over a month (by a bit) of using the Dexcom G6, and I have second impressions.  (First impressions are here.) REVISITING INSERTION. It doesn’t hurt to go in.  I know I mentioned that the first time around but it’s a really big change from all of the other iterations of… Read More

Do you “count carbs” or “wing it?”
When it comes to making sense of diabetes and food, do you count carbs, or do you wing it? Turns out, there’s plenty of gray area between those two concepts. Folks on Facebook seemed to do a bit of both winging and measuring. “We will wing it when we have to, but for the most part, we… Read More

Dino Days
Being diagnosed with diabetes as a child twists time, making me feel like I’m not terribly old but that my diabetes is ancient and withered.  Looking back at an online journal that chronicles almost half my life with diabetes paints me as a digital dinosaur, one whose story and community has… Read More

Split Fingers
(This is not the sexiest post.  Or one that it’s easy to find a not-disgusting stock photo to illustrate.  But my fingers are in a world of stingy-pain half the year, and it turns out I’m not alone.) Let’s just cut right to the chase:  my finger tips split open about six months… Read More

I Tried to Restart my Dexcom G6 Sensor
So yeah, I tried to restart the Dexcom G6 sensor.  And it didn’t work. No offense, Dexcom. I respect your work and I love, love the data from this device.  My health is, without fail, better for the introduction of a CGM into my life. But this shit is expensive, and cost is often a… Read More

Selective Sweet Tooth
I love going out on the town for the night And having a meal by a soft candlelight (Because I know, at a restaurant, meals are yummy; For the food isn’t prepped, touched, or cooked by me.) But to dine with type 1 can be quite complex, Because restaurant food has a whole set of specs That require… Read More

Your Mama So Awesome …
Your mama so awesome that she dragged measuring cups and a tiny scale to restaurants so she could accurately carb count your food. Your mama so awesome that she hand-fed you graham crackers while you had a logic-defying low on the kitchen floor. Your mama so awesome she woke up in the middle of the… Read More

Actually Using the Dexcom G6
Disclosure:  I received my Dexcom G6 as part of the initial PR roll out, once it was approved and available.  I am also part of the Dexcom Warriors program.  But my supplies all go through insurance and my deductible is gross.  For more on my disclosures, click here.   I wasn’t home when… Read More

Like a (Dexcom) G6
First impressions of the Dexcom G6 on the blog tomorrow, but today it’s all about the old song that I pretended not to know all the words to. Popping Dexcoms in my legs, like active beta No need to calibrate, I’m throwing out mad data Sippin’ coffee in my ride, in my ride, A1C 6?… Read More

Teenageabetes
My diabetes blog turns 13 today.  Teenageabetes, in the bloggiest sense.  And fitting that my diabetes doesn’t always want to talk to me, has friends I don’t particularly care for, and only listens to me when I threaten it. And thanks to the weird math of birthdays, that means… Read More

The Diabetic Survivor: Interview with the Artist
I love when diabetes goes visible.  Artistic interpretations of life with diabetes are my favorite, because they have this way of distilling diabetes down to a single image that says so much.  I felt that way when I stumbled upon thediabeticsurvivor’s Instagram account, where simple… Read More

20 Months.
Dear little man, So … monthly letters?  I’ve kind of fallen off the wagon in terms of keeping up with those.  But I have a good excuse:  you. Kid, you are busy.  You don’t sit still.  You like moving.  You laugh loudly and then run off while simultaneously escaping from your… Read More

A StayPut Medical Giveaway!
A few months ago, I stumbled upon StayPut Medical and tried one of these overlay tapes out over a Dexcom G5 sensor.  And even with a history of wonky adhesive issues and easily irritated skin, this tape helped my sensor hold tight, without issue.   Thankful for the free trial sample and eager to… Read More

Urine Charge with the Pee Alarm
Before I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, I started wetting the bed.  I was six years old. We didn’t know to check for diabetes.  I wasn’t exhibiting any other symptoms.  But on a somewhat regular basis, my mother was changing my sheets and I was turning my pajamas into soggy… Read More

Victoza for T1D: A Few Weeks In.
I’m on my fourth week of Victoza.  Here’s the good, the bad, and the reminder that none of this even remotely resembles medical advice for the love of Loopy. THE GOOD: My numbers have been excellent.  Truly excellent.  And I’m the last person who is going to post perfect CGM… Read More

A Look at Body Posi Betes

Visualizing Diabetes

CGM: Cat Glucose Monitor?
This post is from 8 years ago, originally published in 2010 on dLife as part of my column at Generation D.  (Man, this post is old.  This is before Birdy.)  Abby was the best cat ever (sorry, Siah), and her ability to sniff out a low blood sugar is only bested by my Dexcom.  Because I totally… Read More

I Can’t Feel My Face
BEEP BEEP BEEP!! Insistent noise, drowned out only slightly by the sound of two toddlers dunking basketballs on each other in the living room. “Do you have any juice?” My friend reaches into her fridge and pulls out a 1/4 full carton of lemonade.  “Would this work?” She and… Read More

The One About Steel Magnolias
I remember sitting down to watch this movie, not knowing how it ended. “How scary can it be?  Julia Roberts has such a big laugh.  Mom likes Sally Field.  Diabetes in it, too?  That’s cool.  Let’s make some popcorn.” record scratch Narrator’s voice:  Yeah, that… Read More
