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

Hypersensitive: A Look at the Dexcom G6, Several Months Later

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

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

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

Letter Abut Limiting My BG Test Strips
My third-party supplier has recently tried to limit test strips for those using a Dexcom CGM system. In fighting this policy, I penned this letter.

38th Diaversary
Today makes 38 (!!) years of living with type 1 diabetes. While diabetes itself is nothing to celebrate, each year I make a point to acknowledge and celebrate (even if just internally) all of the hard work I do to take good care of myself. It’s never easy, and diabetes is always a lot of… Read More
