April Diabetes Jumble
No time for a “proper post” (which is loosely defined as a blog post with a definitive beginning and end and also usually a point). But lots on my mind today, so resorting to a bullet list in order to let these thoughts out: Some of the group text threads on my phone this week are among… Read More

Why the DOC Makes Me Happy
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve written about the importance of the diabetes online community. Topic-wise, it’s one of my favorite themes to revisit. And I’m absolutely positive as to WHY. When I first started blogging, I didn’t know other people who had… Read More

Under the Influence
My parents made me check my blood sugar before getting behind the wheel when I was a teenager. If I wanted the keys, I had to be responsible without fail, and I had their trust unless I broke the rules. No exceptions. No excuses. I started driving in 1995, so my means for blood sugar checks were… Read More

Friendly Robot Vampire
Earlier in the week, I wrote up my thoughts on the Freestyle Libre 14 Day system and also promised perspectives from a colleague who is using the system who has type 2 diabetes. Today is that day!

Sick Days
It’s been a day. It’s been a week, honestly, because the Pukes have been making their way through my kids, and it’s been a no-school, workus interruptus sort of adventure with lots of hand washing and flat ginger ale and Pedialyte. My washing machine has earned a gold star this… Read More

Poking around in that box that’s been hiding in every iteration of “home” for the better part of a decade, I found another writing sample from what looks like third grade. (No date on the piece of paper, but third grade is where we learned cursive, so this is either the end of… Read More

A Conversation With My Dog About Doctors
The dog and I had a deep conversation recently.  OK, fine. I’ll be honest: It was mostly me ranting, with her just watching and listening. Every so often, she’d wag her tail, raise her ears or tilt her head inquisitively. Mostly, the dog was there to listen and offer moral support.  You… Read More

What To Do With Old Diabetes Tech
I’m at a loss.  In cleaning out the diabetes cupboard (aka the shelves dedicated to diabetes stuff in my pantry),  I found over a decade’s worth of Dexcom receivers. And old glucose meters. And the exciting-at-the-time-yet-now-obsolete Dexcom Share dock. What’s a girl to do with… Read More

Spare a Rose
Earlier this week, I was sick again. A very clingy cold with high snot-producing capability and lethargy like whoa took up residence in my face and chest, and my blood sugars did not respond kindly. As a result, I spent the better part of six hours between 260 – 330 mg/dL on Tuesday. Being… Read More

Is There Another Way to Open These Boxes?
I tend to be very organized when it comes to my diabetes supplies, but there are marked exceptions: For some reason I always tear into a new box of reservoirs or infusion sets like a caffeinated squirrel. I mean, is there another way to open these boxes?… Read More

Free Shower
#160; I love free showers. They are rare bird moments, but pulling off due-to-be changed pump infusion sets and ratty CGM sensors, then stepping into a hot shower and being able to scrub skin with reckless abandon is AMAZING. Free showers.  See also:  yaaaaaas…. Read More

Hello, Gym (aka Improving My Health While Nearing 40)
We joined a gym in late July and my diabetes management habits have been noticeably different since then. Combined with lower-carb eating (roughly half the time), I have noticed a dramatic difference in my blood sugars and overall diabetes management and health.  Sure, there are days when I… Read More

Beyond Diabetes
I used to wait on that cure. Not openly, but quietly. Every time a five year mark come and go and I’d be confused and feeling like my disappointment was silly, yet pervasive. After a few years, I stopped feeling bad about it. And after several decades, I stopped thinking about it at all. My… Read More

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

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

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
