Kim – “Texting My Pancreas”
Kim was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of six. In 2003 she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Her diabetes management tools include her CGM (that she has affectionately named Jim) and her insulin pump. Born and raised in Nebraska (with a brief stint in Connecticut), Kim has found that growing up with type 1 can be a struggle at times. In late 2009, she discovered the diabetes online community, which has provided her with a great deal of support in helping to alleviate the anxieties, fears, and feelings of isolation that living with diabetes can bring. She started her blog Texting My Pancreas in the summer of 2010 and has also become active with the JDRF. Visit Kim’s Blog: “Texting My Pancreas”.

Adventures in Foot Pain.
Disclosure right up front: the shoe company Vionic contacted me a few weeks back and instead of me immediately deleting their email like I do with most PR pitches, I was excited – I really love the two pairs of Vionic shoes I already own. They asked if they could send me a pair of their orthotic… Read More

Health e-Voices Conference.
I want to disclose in a more formal way, rather than a what-does-that-hashtag-mean sort of way, that this weekend I will be attending a conference in Jersey City hosted by Janssen (a Johnson & Johnson company) and Everyday Health. Here’s the conference description:  Healthevoices is a… Read More

We interrupt this not actually scheduled blog break to tell you that there’s a new group video today from the You Can Do This Project.  In case you need a reason to watch it, here are a few.  “We went in [to the pediatrician's office] and I told him that I thought my son had diabetes, and… Read More

A Minute.
Oh. Hey. Right. Blogging.  Things have been quiet around here (and by here, I mean “me on social media”) lately, for a few reasons.  This is one:    Because when you say things on a stage that you had tucked away so deep inside yourself and had planned to just let collect dust;… Read More

Exasperation Station.
Some days I really love my medical devices.  Can we talk about how terrifyingly Riddler-like that face is?  Today is not one of those days.  While my basal has been delivering just fine (I was shocked to see a mostly-straight line from overnight, hovering around 95), my bolusing… Read More

Medicine X 2014: People.
I spent four days on the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto, CA for the Medicine X conference, and what, now I’m just supposed to go back to “real life”?  Emotions, energy, and spirits ran as high as my blood sugar. The #MedXHangover is real.  Every conference. Every time.  So… Read More

Diabetes Stigma on Mashable.
When I think about what we can do to improve the psychosocial health of people living with diabetes it always comes back to this, for me: share your story. Even when it feels like you’re saying the same things again and again, keep sharing. Keep talking. Keep showing. Keep living. Don’t give… Read More

Giveaway: N-Style ID.
When I was a CWD (child with diabetes) in the late 80′s/early 90′s, I had two options: I could wear the clunky, thick, stretchy metal bracelet whose links always seemed to trap my arm hair (and then rip it out when the bracelet shifted on my wrist), or I could sport a large (to a child) medallion… Read More

“Keep Going.”
The minutiae of my diabetes life is looking pretty blurry lately – it’s less “paying close attention” and more “auto-pilot”.  I dipped my pinky toe into the CGM in the Cloud waters last week by downloading Chromadex, and thereby downloading (for the first time, at home) my Dexcom G4 CGM data… Read More

Results: The Emotional Impact of Wearing an Insulin Pump.
A week ago, I asked those of you who wear one to tell me what you wish someone had told you about how insulin pumping affects you emotionally, and the responses were just as diverse, thorough, and sometimes surprising as I’d hoped they would be. Thank you, everyone!  Sifting through all… Read More

The Emotions Of Insulin Pumping?
Update: you can find the results of this crowdsourcing post here.  Chris brought up an interesting point in his post earlier this week: when a person starts with their first insulin pump, there should be emotional training that happens along with the technical training you receive. In addition… Read More

Suddenly, Bloggers.
