Sarah – “Insulin, Glucose and Test Strips”
Sarah describes herself as a “southern girl with T1 diabetes”. She was diagnosed at the age of 4, at which time she began using daily injections to manage her blood sugar. When she was 16 she switched to insulin pump therapy, which helped her to achieve lower A1c’s. Sarah blogs on various topics, including her experiences with diabetes and pregnancy. Like Scott from Scott’s Diabetes, Sarah has also posted her A1c history on her site. She currently resides in South Carolina where she works as an insurance agent.

Dear 18 Year Old Self
While I’m not “officially” participating in National Health Blog Post Month (#NHBPM), I do like the topic for today and thought I’d post my own letter. I’ve posted one to myself as a newly diagnosed girl before, but not as myself entering into adulthood. So, here goes!) Giiirrll, I know… Read More

Today, we kick off a full month devoted to trying to raise awareness for a disease that not only affects our older loved ones, but men, women, and children of all ages. Can you live with diabetes? Yes. Is diabetes manageable? Yes, but… Read More

New Appreciation
Since this whole eczema thing with BabyK, I have been really thinking of dmoms and ddads. Granted, with him, all I have to do is eliminate some foods from my diet and coat him down with cream and a steroid on the bad spots twice per day. Heck, he could even grow out of this […]… Read More

Three Months
My sweet little buddy, you’re three months old today. That’s a quarter of a year! And though you’re much the same as last time I wrote, there are lots of new little things that are making you who you are. You still love your music, but boy do you love to move! You’re going to […]… Read More

Going Moo-Free
A.K.A. – going dairy-free. After taking BabyK back to the pediatrician yesterday about his eczema rash, I have decided to try my best to go moo-free for 3 weeks to see if his eczema is caused by a dairy allergy. At first, when I heard this a few weeks ago, I thought it would be […]… Read More

Special
Yesterday was mine and Erik’s 4th anniversary. We usually try to do something like going out to eat at a special restaurant or even take a trip. But, since BabyK arrived, we wanted to not go extravagant as you never know what may come up with a baby financially. So, we agreed to make our […]… Read More

My New “Dantra”
On my Twitter account, I follow a quote person… or bot.. or whatever you call him/her/it named @allgreatquotes. Some of them, I don’t care for too much. Others, I like, so I retweet them. This was this morning’s quote (which I promptly retweeted…)  : "The harder you work, the… Read More

Conquer
While living with diabetes, lots you can become afraid of a lot of things. And, with some of them, if you let that fear get to you, it can hold you back from living. Fear of getting married. Would I find someone who would understand this disease? Who would be there to help and support […]… Read More

My Endo
The doctor-patient relationship is one that is very important to me. Not only do I like to have a doctor that I can trust, but one that is – even through all the years of his or her practice – still human. Not some big textbook-spewing robot who has medical degree after medical degree, but… Read More

The Hubs
In honor of No-D-Day (Thanks, George!), I’m going to talk about something else besides me, or D, or even BabyK (well, we all might come up in there a bit, but the post isn’t centered around us). Other than my wonderful, beautifully handsome baby boy, there’s only one other person in my life… Read More

Laugh
Laugh When you feel like you just can’t win. Laugh When it hurts to do it over and over again. Laugh When you just can’t figure it out. Laugh When it seems there’s nothing to laugh about.   Laugh Until the frustration is small Laugh Until the hurt is no longer a wall Laugh Until […]… Read More

Technofail and Diafail
Two words from the Diabetes Terms of Endearment that came to my mind this morning. See, when I woke up at 5am this morning with Erik to get BabyK his bottle, I knew I was low. But I hadn’t been alerted because my CGM didn’t alarm. Why? Because it had “Lost (the) Sensor”. Ugh. I […]… Read More

Two Front Burners
You know, I get that losing weight has an impact on insulin needs. And I have done that. Not only has it been two months since BabyK was born, but I have continued to lose weight and am now down to my lowest weight during the 1st trimester, which was 10 pounds lower than my […]… Read More

Little Froggie, You are two months old today. (Whoa!) Since going back to work, it seems my time with you is passing by too fast. You are growing like a weed and changing your looks every day it seems. You have now learned how to move your hand just right to knock your paci out […]… Read More

Routines
Whew! I’ve made it through my first week back at work. It hasn’t been easy, but I have liked having a routine back in my life.  I have to have routine and structure. Always have. It was even evident to me while I was on maternity leave that I have to have one. I honestly […]… Read More

Good News For Diet Soda Drinkers!
Growing up with diabetes since the age of 4, drinking soft drinks and even things like Kool-Aid required them to be “diet”. Of course this would spark debate among many dear, caring souls about the harmful effects that artificial sweeteners could have on my little body. But what were we to do?… Read More

Back In The Swing
Yep. I’m back in the swing of life. The hurry-and-go that comes with having a full-time job, but only now I have the added joy of learning how to get up, pump the baby’s breastmilk, get ready, and get him ready, fed and changed before going to work. I have learned that it’s good to […]… Read More

One, Froggie
*Taken from the brilliant mind of Kerri Sparling, I am planning on writing a monthly letter to my little one, who I have nicknamed “Frog” or “Froggie” for lots of reasons, but mostly because of how he likes to sleep. Today, he’s a month old! Whoa! Time really does fly!* Froggie, You have… Read More

The First Week With The Revel
I’ve now had a week to play around with my new Revel pump and I thought I’d write a post about my likes and dislikes of the system so far. First of all, the main thing I love is the CGM being integrated. No more need to have two devices hooked to me. Granted, I […]… Read More

Revelling – Getting Started
First off, let me say that I am very sorry for not getting this post up Monday as promised. I wanted to get it done, but learning to balance a new baby and diabetes is much harder than I ever thought it would be, especially when the baby throws an all-nighter at you. The only […]… Read More

After The Birthday (Part 3)
I was kept on the critical floor for that day and a half because not only was I on a morphine drip, but I was also on a magnesium drip because of my blood platelets. They had dropped yet again. Not to mention, my blood sugars went on a wild ride right after delivery, dropping […]… Read More

Birthday (Part 2)
So sorry for the delay in this post. We have been on an adventure ride with lack of sleep, dirty diapers, diaper rash, and bottle cleaning all along with managing diabetes and the loop that is thrown right after baby delivery. But, more on that later. Here’s part 2 of the birthday story… I laid… Read More

Birthday (Part 1)
I had been called Friday morning at work and was told that I needed to go to the hospital as soon as possible to have more blood work done because my labs from the doctor’s office Thursday indicated that I had a very low platelet count and it needed to be redone. So, off to […]… Read More

Blessed
I plan to do a several-parter blog about the birth of BabyK, but today, I wanted to just let you guys in a short post know how things are going currently. Words can never fully describe the feeling you get when you hear your baby cry for the first time. The whole nine months of […]… Read More
