Michael – “The Diabetic’s Corner Booth”
A type 1 diabetic since age 5 and the son of a type 1 mother, Michael started his blog to share his story in an effort to convey the less publicized “human-side of living with diabetes”. Why is his blog called the Corner Booth? Before he moved to Indiana, Michael spent his time near the shores of Lake Michigan where he frequented Linda’s Place, a 24-hour diner. There, he and his friends occupied the Corner Booth, sharing stories over coffee and often jotting down their “ramblings” on white paper napkins. Similarly, his web site is his online booth, a place where he can record his observations and experiences having lived with type 1 diabetes since March of 1984. Visit Michael’s Blog: “The Diabetic’s Corner Booth”.

Drinking My Diaversary Juice
Another year with type 1 has come and gone.  For those keeping count, I’m now at 33 years with T1D. And for those who’ve been following along over the years, you may recall that I self-designated March 10 the date a number of years ago, because I really don’t know the exact date other than it… Read More

Weird Diabetes Dreams
I’m no stranger to having crazy dreams that tie in with diabetes, sometimes in wicked weird and scary ways.  A number of years ago, I recall dreaming that I was buried alive in a coffin and trying to escape when suddenly, a scary hybrid-freak spider appeared — complete with infusion set… Read More

Attention all Time Travelers in 2017
This is a cautionary note to anyone who happens to be time-traveling to, from or during 2017…  Sorry to say, Time Traveling Explorers, this is real. Yep, it’s not a joke.   Even though the Chicago Cubs seriously did win the 2016 World Series (not kidding), this too is also a part… Read More

Playing Darts
For the past five months, I’ve been unconnected to my insulin pump and have been doing daily injections and inhaled insulin to keep my blood sugars in check.   All is well on that front, and at this point I have no plans to go back to insulin pumping in the near future.  As some may… Read More

Our Wedding Engagement Newspaper
Happy Wedding Anniversary, Suzi!  As I do every year, I sit back on this special day and re-read the newspaper I created to propose back in March 2003. This full eight-page broadsheet is the one I spent about three months creating many months in advance.  It was quite the task, writing… Read More

An Aching Tooth and Diabetes Stigma
I sat silent there in the dental chair, listening to the new dentist ask an array of basic questions about dental history and overall health.  Of course, diabetes came up.  Earlier, in the waiting room, there were the new patient forms to fill out everything about me. All the health and… Read More

Which Don To Respect?
Remember how I used to occasionally reference the “Don of Rage Bolusing?”  You know, that was mostly a term of endearment for my insulin pump. Even though sometimes, I used it to describe myself from time to time. In those times when I saw stubborn High blood sugars that wouldn’t budget with… Read More

Driving A Car on Dangerous, Worn Tires
Hello again. Blue Care Network.  It’s me again. The guy you’ve added to “The List” on potential rabble-rousers, those you sound warning bells on whenever their name pops up in the call que or a written communication comes in. Yep, that guy.  We’ve done this dance before, you and I…. Read More

Thoughts on #DiabetesAccessMatters From the Airport
Here I sit, in the New Orleans airport waiting for my flight back home following the ADA’s biggest diabetes meeting of the year.  I’ve got some personal thoughts to share.  This isn’t a professional recap of anything, just a line to what’s going through my head and heart here at the… Read More

First Month of My Insulin Pump Break
A month ago, I decided to step away from my Medtronic insulin pump.  This was long overdue, a needed change that I needed to revisit in order to get my diabetes back in line. Yet, I had been putting this off and it wasn’t until Medtronic’s business decision to screw with patient choice and… Read More

If My Diabetes Devices Were Parts of a Car…
I can’t even write this post without shaking my head in disbelief, wondering how such stupidity exists in this world.  That first sentence should tell you immediately that this is an insurance company related post.  Back in March, I wrote about my challenges in getting my Dexcom CGM… Read More

Ron Swanson’s Message For Diabetes Blog Week
This is Diabetes Blog Week, Year 7.  The Prompt: Message Monday. Share your message, all about why you blog. Yep, share that story.  Everyone’s got one. All the many diabetes blogs are sharing their messages, which are pretty consistent on why they got to blogging and what’s important to… Read More

Goodbye, Medtronic (From A Once-Loyal Pump Customer)
I am mad, sad, confused, conflicted, and utterly disappointed.  All because of the recent UHC policy change about making Medtronic it’s preferred, exclusive in-warranty pump supplier.  My head has been spinning and my emotions have run the gamut, wondering what I truly think and how this… Read More

Happiness and 32 Years With Type 1 Diabetes
You know, I am very happy with my life.  We can complain all day long about This or That, but when the rubber meets the road, the undeniable fact is that I’m doing OK. I’ve got more to smile about than not.  Especially when it comes to diabetes.   I am 37 years old and today marks my… Read More

Hello From The Other Eye Docs
Hello, it’s me.  After all these years, we’re fully established back in Michigan after more than a decade in Indiana. And with that, comes finding the new doctors — including my trusty diabetes-focused endo Dr. G, and that ever-important eye specialist who’s going to see me (!) through… Read More

Hello Again, Mr. Mumbles
Several years had gone by since the last time Mr. Mumbles visited our house, and quite a bit has changed. But one thing that hasn’t is the fact that once again, Mr. Mumbles met Mr. Diabetes in way that wasn’t too much fun.  One day after my 37th birthday, I found myself in the dental surgeon’s… Read More

Mountains + Valleys + Mittelgebirge of Diabetes
A new day begins.  All is smooth, as I coast along the waters and taking in as much of my surroundings as possible as I go about my daily business.   My waters get rocky and I make a dash to the coastline, journeying onto land and venturing toward a spot that’s somewhere between a short… Read More

Sometimes I Lie
Confession time.  Sometimes, I lie about my diabetes data.  Just like I did back in my teen years, I tell fibs when it comes to my blood sugars. But unlike those days back in the 90s, this is real-time D-lying and it’s mostly during the middle-of-the-night hours.  The reason: To shut… Read More

Mopping Up After a Nightcap Hypo
My watch said 10:56p, and as I walked toward the glass gas station door, the time written on the glass told me closing time was in roughly 4 minutes.  Though the glass, I could see the gas station attendant mopping up around the counter. The shiny wetness told me he’d already cleaned the floor… Read More

My Formative First Years of Coffee
I don’t remember the first cup of coffee that ever crossed my lips.  But I do remember when coffee first became “a thing” for me, something I craved and wanted to drink up. Simply put: It was all about Coffee & Conversation, and the two went hand-in-hand.  Everything came together at… Read More

Low Blood Sugars, A No Hitter and the Michigan Move
For those who weren’t aware, I just made a move from Indiana back to Southeast Michigan.  It’s been an adventure packing everything up for the move, which just happened this past week. And I wrote about some of that fun over at DiabetesMine the other day.  Photo made by me, so I’m posting… Read More

Trapped in a TV Show
A friend posted a question online the other day that got me thinking.  Certainly not a new question, as it’s been going around online for years.  My answer: Well, it depends…  Mostly, on the rules.  Just how exactly am I going to be trapped in TV? Will this be like the movie… Read More

The Boston Experience
So, the big diabetes conference of the year with all kinds of science and tech talk and just “diabetes research” as a mantra has now come and gone.  I’m in Detroit following the ADA’s Scientific Sessions, and have to admit my time in Boston was quite a bit of fun on top of all the interesting… Read More

On The Road: Blood Sugars, Starbucks, and E-85 Fuel
These past several months have seen a lot more travel up to Michigan as we have been planning our move back to the state. Since we both have older cars, I’ve turned to renting some cars to save mileage.  Rental cars influence my D-travel world in small ways:  making sure I have the… Read More

D-Blog Week 2015 Day 3: Moving My Diabetes Crap
We are prepping for a move back to Michigan, where we were born raised. This comes after 11 years of living in Indiana.  During that 11+ years, we’ve moved three times — from an apartment, to our first house, to a smaller house. All within a couple miles of each other. The last move from a… Read More

D-Blog Week 2015 Day 2: Keeping It All Top Gun
Keeping It In, so says the Day 2 prompt of D-Blog Week 2015.  This conversation from Top Gun comes to mind:  “That’s classified.”  “It’s what?”  “It’s classified. I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.”  “Lieutenant, I have Top Secret clearance.”  “The… Read More
