Goals
Goals: Wake up. Avoid shit that makes me feel crummy. Surround myself with people who make me feel like I’m understood. Drink just enough coffee to keep my eyelids pinned open but not so much that the room feels filled with bees. Check in on my blood sugars. Care about those numbers. Care… Read More

The power of small, simple steps
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of SPLENDA® Naturals. The opinions and text are all mine. I can be a little stubborn sometimes.

Diabetes Cost of Living
It is humbling to look in the butter compartment of my fridge and see insulin.  It’s necessary.  And I’m grateful. The out of pocket cost is upwards of $380 per bottle without insurance, and making sure our family has insurance coverage is our biggest worry in regular rotation. When… Read More

The Bright Side
My daughter, randomly, asked me what a seizure was. (Turns out someone had talked about it at school as a result of a student with epilepsy.) We talked about it, and then she asked if diabetes could cause seizures.  She doesn’t ask me complicated questions about the longterm effects of diabetes… Read More

Time without CGM? No big deal, right?
I am a big fan of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). I’ve used CGM for a more than a decade. I think it’s a tremendously valuable layer of information, and I’d argue that continuous glucose monitoring has been the the biggest improvement in diabetes since blood sugar monitors… Read More

Flu Shots are Important
I get a flu shot every year.  The practice was encouraged when I was pregnant with my daughter back in 2009/2010 and I have carried it through since.  My whole family gets the flu shot.  We do this every year, even though Birdy hates it and the little Guy is starting to become wary of visits to… Read More

Rewind: What Brings Me Down … and Then Back Up
Diabetes has made my body broken in ways I don’t readily admit, but I am sometimes forced to acknowledged.  People talk about my daughter’s chances of developing the disease and they always give me what they think is a comforting comment – “At least it would be the devil you know,” –… Read More
