D-Parodies for DHF

Posted by MelissaBL on September 1, 2014 at 7:52am 0 Comments

I've started a personal campaign to raise money for the Diabetes Hands Foundation. I'll be releasing music video parodies of songs and changing the lyrics to be diabetes-themed! From now through September 30, you can cheer me on by making a donation at http://www.razoo.com/story/Dparody. Hope you will help me give back to the great folks at TuDiabetes and reach my goal. All of the money goes DIRECTLY to DHF and is tax deductible.

Update - total change

Posted by Jen on August 31, 2014 at 9:30am 2 Comments

This year has been crazy. So many ups and downs and changes, in many ways culminating in this summer. This year I've changed jobs, been diagnosed with a major chronic disease, gained another severe food allergy, lost my best friend, had some amazing summer experiences, and graduated with a Master of Arts. In some ways things are the same, in other ways it feels like this year has been a lifetime! And things are not going to be slowing down, at least in the health area. My next major goal…

Bloodwork Came Back

Posted by jesikabeth on August 30, 2014 at 9:08am 3 Comments

So my blood work came back. My c-peptide is a .84

Now we wait through the weekend until my stuff is submitted on Monday to the insurance company, and then we'll find out about approval. Oy vei!

If it does not get approved, then my doctor will do a peer-to-peer with the insurance company.

Being I am a Cancer patient, they say it may be a bit more of jumping through hoops, but I should get approved.

Waiting is the worst!
