Ornapods and Care Packages: Bringing Hope, Courage, and…
With stomach bugs and flu running rampant just a few days before Christmas, many of us D Rents are living in fear that our kids will get sick and we will end up spending the holidays in the hospital.  That would really bring out my inner Grinch!  But you know what would be worse? … Read More

Video: Children Diagnosed With T1D Under 2 Years Old.
We interrupt this not actually scheduled blog break to tell you that there’s a new group video today from the You Can Do This Project.  In case you need a reason to watch it, here are a few.  “We went in [to the pediatrician’s office] and I told him that I thought my son had diabetes, and… Read More

November 2014 Update
Seeing DW’s recent update inspired me to do the same.  My life during the past 14 months has been crazy!  I have experienced so many surgeries in a single year — all but two unrelated (I had to have a second surgery on my ankle) — well its enough to challenge anyone.  meanwhile,… Read More

Hello, November.
Hello.  It’s been a while so I thought I’d pop in a drop a blog. That sounds like I’m going to do something awesome with some killer dance moves or something but no.  I’m just here to purge the Diabetes side of brain.  Haha!   I don’t have any excuses for not… Read More

A Blast From The Past
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!  I was going back through old posts yesterday looking for pics of Sweets when she was little and found this little gem!  This was in 2010.  It was our second Halloween after her diagnosis.  I can not believe how little she was!  Her personality, however, is… Read More

Let Them Eat Candy: Type 1 and Halloween
Halloween is Friday!  This makes me happy because I love Halloween!  This was 3 years ago… look how little she was!   However, I know that there are some parents our there who do not share in my love for this holiday.  And I know that for some, it’s because of diabetes. … Read More

Diabetes and stubbornness don’t mix
I can be really stubborn when it comes to certain aspects of my diabetes. For example, I use “expired” insulin because I think it works just fine.  However, sometimes that stubbornness can get in the way. Like when I insisted that I could use Apidra in my t:Slim insulin pump, even though I… Read More

The switchup: from shots to pump
I’ve had type 1 for 9 years now. I was on shots for one year. On the Medtronic pump for 5 years. And then in the last three years, I’ve switched back and forth between my new pump (the Tandem t:slim) and shots. Both solutions—insulin pump and pens—have their pros and cons. When all is said and… Read More

Oh. Hey. Right. Blogging.  Things have been quiet around here (and by here, I mean “me on social media”) lately, for a few reasons.  This is one:    Because when you say things on a stage that you had tucked away so deep inside yourself and had planned to just let collect dust;… Read More

Are you a warrior?  I bet you are – even if you don’t consider yourself one!  Or if you don’t feel like one all the time!  I live with a little diabetes warrior.  But I bet you knew that!  Now, however, it’s official!  Sweets is an official Dexcom Warrior!  … Read More

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

What makes me tick – Volume 3 – Athletics (Part B)
Continued from the first post…  Am I in love with a sport I don’t stand a chance in?   I have huge confidence issues with my athletic performance. If you’ve read this blog for any length of time  you already know that. I’m constantly self-depreciating with my results and… Read More

I don’t need you judging my diabetes
It’s really easy for people who don’t have diabetes to judge others who do have it.  Should you be eating that?  Why did you let your blood sugar get so high?  Your blood sugar is low…again?  You forgot your insulin? How can you forget?  Someone who has diabetes doesn’t… Read More

This Is Why
We are gearing up for our sixth Walk to Cure Diabetes.   Six years.   In some ways it feels like our first walk just last week.  And in others it feels like diabetes has been a part of our lives forever.   Each year it gets harder to get people involved.   Each year it… Read More

This is an anxiety attack
I’m taking a break from my essay volumes to recount a story, an episode from the other night. This is how I can best describe what happens to me when my anxiety is triggered.  The other day was a recipe for the perfect storm. The lead up has just as much to do with the attack as the… Read More

Expanding Our Horizons
Last week Sweets got a spacer – or palette expander – at the Orthodontist.   In case you don’t know what that is, I’ll show you.  It’s a little gross but we all live with Diabetes and blood and sites and stuff so I think you can handle it.     There it is… that… Read More

Diabetes: the Silent Disease
How many times have you tried to hide your diabetes? Smile and fake laugh when someone makes a diabetes-related joke? Avoid a chance to educate someone about it?  Hiding it doesn’t make it better. Being silent doesn’t make you strong.  These are the two things I’m constantly learning as a… Read More

On Her Own: First Steps Toward Freedom
Last weekend we had a big FIRST in terms of diabetes.  Last weekend Sweets went to a birthday party BY HERSELF.  No mom hanging out.  No adult there who knew how to count carbs and bolus.  Just Sweets, her kit, and our Nightscout.  This was big.  I mean BIG.  Just… Read More

Why It’s a Big Deal: Miss America, Insulin Pumps, and T1D
I remember watching Miss America when I was little.  I always wanted Miss Ohio to win.  She never did.  I haven’t watched it in years.  Really had no interest at all.  Until this year.  You know why…   It’s all because of Sierra Sandison, Miss Idaho.  And… Read More

Exasperation Station.
Some days I really love my medical devices.  Can we talk about how terrifyingly Riddler-like that face is?  Today is not one of those days.  While my basal has been delivering just fine (I was shocked to see a mostly-straight line from overnight, hovering around 95), my bolusing… Read More

Medicine X 2014: People.
I spent four days on the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto, CA for the Medicine X conference, and what, now I’m just supposed to go back to “real life”?  Emotions, energy, and spirits ran as high as my blood sugar. The #MedXHangover is real.  Every conference. Every time.  So… Read More
