She is married and works as Copywriter/Creative Director…and as she states in her blog, she “really likes beer”. Jacquie manages her diabetes with her MiniMed Paradigm Insulin Pump and CGM. Her engaging blog post topics include experiences with low blood sugars, scoping out new CGM sensor locations (like the Side-Butt), and sleeping through her CGM’s beeping.

Wiping is Fun Again
I’ve always been a wiper. Pants, napkins, the dark material of my glucose meter case. Never anything normal like an actual alcohol swab. And I’ve never been a licker, although I have many friends who are. I don’t judge them for their bloodthirsty ways, and I hope they don’t… Read More

Like the Wind
I’m going to go ahead and bet that no one even remembers this, but about 300 years ago, I was blogging about running. I actually even ran about 12 or 13 times. Running sucked, of course. But I loved it, of course. I liked all the accessories I got to buy and wear. I liked […]… Read More

Things that Happened at the Medtronic Diabetes Advocate Forum
If I could solve the problems, what do you think I would be? One stupid seagull picking styrofoam up out of the sea . . . – Don’t Have Time, Liz Phair Let me start this story by saying I’ve never thought of myself as a big joiner. I don’t generally get jazzed up about my… Read More

The Diabetes Mafia
Twenty-three years ago today, I was beaten into the diabetes mafia by a bum pancreas and an angry, needle-wielding nurse. If the last several months have taught me anything, it’s that there’s no easy way out of that club; there might be no way out at all. Diabetes is everywhere! Food… Read More

Goodbye, Old Friend
Friends, family members, endocrinologists and pharmacists, entire Internet: It is with mixed feelings that I come before you today to say farewell to an old friend. Writing this is difficult, but it helps me reflect on the time we spent together; the memories we’ve made. My medical alert… Read More

Things I’m Running Out Of
1. Test strips, usually. Ever since I went back to a non-pregnant-person’s blood sugar maintenance schedule (5 times a day instead of 10+), my pharmacy’s gotten very sneaky with the way they fill my prescription. It says to test 5-6 times per day, but I’m only given 100 strips… Read More

Forgetting About It
One of the diabetes things I complain about the most is the fact that it’s an unforgettable disease. From the piles of used test strips in my purse to the CGM alarms and daily low blood sugars, I’d guess I think about diabetes about once every 30 minutes. At least. Lately, though,… Read More

Diabetes Blog Week: Memories
I’m late, but I’m here! And that’s okay. I even have a personal Facebook message from the lovely Karen Graffeo, founder of Diabetes Blog Week, to prove it.  Here’s Wednesday’s topic: Today we’re going to share our most memorable diabetes day. You can take this… Read More

Biohazards at Work
When I’m trying to hang on to something that I really cannot lose, I put it with the one other thing that I really cannot lose (besides my child): my glucose meter. Sometimes it’s a necklace, or a wad of … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

Meanwhile, on WhatToExpect.com . . .
I have a guest post, all about the glorious anxiety of complicated pregnancies, and how, even though everyone on earth these days has a pregnancy that’s complicated by something, it can still be a very lonely experience. Read it here!… Read More

The BioHub Brouhaha of 2013: An Animated Retrospective
So most of us know what happened last week with our super top-secret cure-that’s-not-really-a-cure exploding Internet DOC rage fundraising nonsense. And everyone has an opinion on the subject; most of those opinions have already been (very eloquently) expressed in others‘ blogs…. Read More

I Hate the Nightlife
It would make sense that low blood sugar and sleep deprivation share some of the same symptoms: confusion, a vague sense of instability, lethargy, hunger, uncontrollable rage unfairly aimed at the family dog. Sleep and sugar are both things our … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

The Tinglies
My feet feel weird. I don’t know how else to say it, and for that reason, I’m not sure what to do about it. And I’m kind of freaked out. It all started with my “ring toe” on my left … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

Oh, the Technology!

My Regularly Scheduled Diabetes
About 100 years ago, I wrote about how taking good care of diabetes and a baby feels like an impossible feat. Even impossibler than taking good care of diabetes alone. Time has passed, though. I’m back at work and feeling … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

Taking Care of Two Babies
News flash, everyone! Having a baby is hard. And time-consuming. It’s amazing to me how I can spend an entire day doing nothing — and watching the Magpie do nothing — and end up so exhausted at the end of … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

The Way it All Went Down
One year ago, if you’d told me I’d be putting my birth story on the Internet, I’d have totally thought you were drunk. But, what a difference a pregnancy makes. I feel like it’s important to share what happened, for … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

Meet the Magpie*
In what’s becoming her signature style, she showed up unexpectedly — almost 4 weeks before her expected due date. But she’s arrived! Born at 11:08 AM on August 24. Six pounds and 5 ounces of sweet, amazing, healthy babyness. Thanks … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

Having the Baby. And Diabetes, Too.
Several weeks ago, I insisted that I wasn’t going to bother with a birth plan. I may have been lying. I’m at 34 weeks now — too swollen and exhausted, it seems, to keep up with much of normal life, … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

The Home Stretch
This Wednesday, I’ll be 28 weeks pregnant, tiptoeing cautiously into my third trimester. It sounds insane, but I can’t believe I’m still pregnant — I keep waiting for someone to call this whole thing off, and so far, no one … Continue reading &#8594… Read More

Overcompensation Nation

Ode to a Type 3
Dear Ol’ Husband, You know how it makes me feel all weird and itchy when people get overly affectionate in public forums. Those elaborate declarations of love and devotion and you’re-the-best-ness always seem tinged with notes of overcompensation. Or, you …… Read More

One Thing to Improve: Emergency Preparedness

Memories of a Former Needle-Wielder
The test strips are everywhere. I find them in the shower, on the living room couch, in friends’ cars. Stuck to my arms and legs when I wake up in the morning. Yesterday, my husband texted me a picture of … Continue reading &#8594… Read More
