Alexis – “Justice’s Misbehaving Pancreas”
Alexis’ son Justice was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just days after his 6th birthday in October of 2008. After suspecting that his upset stomach might be due to food poisoning, Alexis rushed Justice to the ER the following day when he wouldn’t get out of bed, was slurring his words and vomiting. Justice was in DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis). His blood sugar was 491. “It’s the day our lives changed,” Alexis states in her blog. She started blogging so that she could have a place to vent and let it all out, so that she wouldn’t have to keep all the sadness and stress bottled up.

Blog – Repost – This is Type 1, This is why we walk.
On October 21, 2014 Justice will have had Type 1 for 6 years, 1/2 his life. On October 25, 2014, we will walk in our 6th walk to cure diabetes.  I won’t lie, the donations are scarce. No one has asked if they can tag along, or when the walk is, or what they can do. Not like the years past. I… Read More

School accessories. – Medical ID
I am so excited for back to school… Said no Dmom EVER.  Truth is I am always a mess before 504 time, and somehow it always works out just fine.  J’s D kit is packed and ready, his class containers with candy and snacks are packed, 504 is written, doctors orders signed.  But one… Read More

Camp Empowerment
If you know me you know I am definitely a helicopter mom at times.   So whenever I was asked if I would send Justice away to diabetes camp. my automatic answer was always no.  To be honest and in all fairness he wasn’t ready either, he never showed interest until this past… Read More

He NEEDED This.
J was awarded a scholarship for camp through our local JDRF. He was eligible because he is a Youth Ambassador, and has performed the necessary hours volunteering for JDRF. There were some other requirements as well, and an essay explaining why you deserve/want to go was part of the application as… Read More

Worse than Diabetes?
Back in September J was diagnosed with low IGA also known as immunodeficiency disorder. To be honest I kept thinking “right,  another thing we can handle it”, and we can but little did I know that it would be more of a nuisance in our lives than diabetes.  For years on and off we saw a… Read More

The Hole
It’s like you’re falling into hole and the more you try to get out the deeper you fall.  I guess it’s  like quicksand you’re  stuck but you’re so desperately trying to reach the outside world.  It doesn’t work, you just get pulled in, faster and faster.  Logically you know… Read More

I Survived…..
Both my babies are home, and snuggled in bed. It’s amazing how people think I can sleep because J isn’t here to check. The worry and internal alarm still goes off, and I honestly slept less than I do when he’s home. I feel whole again. – don’t judge me, it’s just who I am, and how I am.  … Read More

Trial Run – It’s Hard.
J leaves to diabetes camp on 4/14, he has received a scholarship through our amazing local JDRF for all his work he has done as a Youth Ambassador.  I’m scared. Nights are gonna be hard for me. J, while insulin resistant at times, is very sensitive to activity, keeping me on my toes anytime… Read More

“Take it. Share it. Step Out.”
While my blog is dedicated mostly to type 1, and my love and work with/for JDRF, I would like to draw focus today to Type 2 diabetes and a great campaign the ADA is running.   Both my husband, father, and grandfather are type 2. While the disease origin or management may differ from t1… Read More

Waiting Game
Day 2 – I think I can do this photo blog thing, it works with my hectic schedule and lack of sleep brain.  Oh yea sleep.

Let go, and Trust.
J is independent. He is doing it. He is owning it. I was scared to lose control of every number, bolus, and decision.   Buuuuut looks like he is going to so just fine.  *** a conversation with Bob, Mike and Kerri M. inspired me to start blogging again. I don’t have the time or… Read More

Crying Together
3 years ago, my amazing friend Laura (Houston We Have A Problem, check her blog out if you haven’t), wrote a blog about why she still cries. Why this disease is bullshit. Today she reposted it, and at a time, and day where it resonated with me, as much as it did the first time I read it.  I… Read More

I miss it.
Family is in town, the excitement and joy of seeing my mom and siblings is beyond words, for the boys too.  I expected pinsanity, bickering, fighting and loads of chaos with 4 boys under 14 in the house, but I wasn’t prepared for everything else.   I am watching my brothers, who are… Read More

Things to remember… For all of us.
I’m not a doctor, a nurse, or anything professional. Just a mom, who breathes Diabetes and has learned some stuff along the way.  1. Just a number. High or low, that’s all it is. It does NOT define you, your child or how well you’re doing. It tells a story. It tells you what your next move is,… Read More

Deliriously Funny, I Guess.
Apparently no sleep is bad for me but good for my sense of humor. I mean really, in order to survive this diabetes life we all are living, there are a few things we need.  1) Good friends (YES YOU)2) The ability to laugh when all we really want to do is cryand 3) Apparently… Read More

Dark, Cold and Lonely. #ManicMondays
I always say I hate diabetes, how it’s the worst thing in the world, how it takes away my joy some days and sleep.  But I have to be honest, and lynch me if you like but one thing I always will do is keep it real on my blog.  Anxiety and hypochondria is worse.  For me it is.  I… Read More
