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”.

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

Lightning Speed.
Just a wee little update on the wee little Rabbit:  Who in the span of a few days has become more “kid” than “baby”, to my eyes.  (Also, please ignore all of the stuff on my kitchen counter. Cleaning hasn’t been a priority.)… 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

#MedX Global Access Program; Ignite Talk.
var linkwithin_site_id = 1586671; Chris was the reason I applied in 2012. I had never heard of Stanford’s Medicine X conference before, nor had I known they were looking specifically for patients to attend their conference. “You should apply for this”, he said – which baffled me. Me? Stanford?… 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

Review and Giveaway: aDorn Designs.
Update: this contest is now closed! Congratulations to the winner – Kristina!  Y’all know I love my diabetes accessories, and I will not admit de-tweet (groan, I know, sorry) even when a manufacturer discontinues a favorite. So where can one now look for a stylish, secure, coated-fabric… 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

A “Fakebetes Challenge”.
Do you know Michelle Litchman? She’s a Utah-based nurse practitioner who is very active on social media and she does a lot of good work for people with diabetes.

#MasterLab Debrief.

Suddenly, Bloggers.

“How Are You Managing Your Diabetes”?
Are you asking what devices I use? A glucose meter, an insulin pump, and a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), mostly. Sometimes my phone joins the party. I know that the tools I use are not indicative of how “bad” my diabetes is, but I recognize that you may not know this.  Are you asking about… Read More

A Bad Habit.
When my endocrinologist downloads the data from my Dexcom receiver later today during my appointment, she’s bound to notice quite a few gaps – like the one last night, where there will be no data from around 11:30 pm until I woke up this morning at 5:45 am.  You see, about a half hour before… Read More

Five Years.
Five years ago today, my insulin pump died and a photographer didn’t show up. Oh, and I got to marry my best friend.  It was a full day.  It also taught me that one should never stuff an insulin pump under a pair of Spanx in 80+ degree heat while wearing a heavy satin gown. LEARN FROM MY… Read More

T:slim Improv.
Sometimes you promptly lose the “keys” that come with your pump - the ones required to loosen the cartridge from the pump body when you need to change parts out – and really the job is only suited for a skinny, hard, plastic thing, so you have to improvise.  Welcome to The Pumpered Chef…. Read More

Adventures In Coconut Flour.
Aaron and I have been exploring a culinary world free of gluten for the past several months. Not for us, but for our daughter. She doesn’t have any aversions to gluten (that we know of), but if there’s even a small chance that something we do can maybe lower her risk for developing type 1… Read More

Been There.
I’m really encouraged to see attention being brought to the link between living with diabetes and living with mental health issues.
