Senior College Project

So, my last project in my college career, is about family crisis. I have picked having a family member diagnosed with diabetes. All my research is done, and now I have to create a collection/collage of items to put on display in a showcase at the school. I am going to put obvious items, the box my PDM came in, insulin vial, used pod, but I am also looking for other neat ideas. One I am going to use is this website, to point out the importance of social support. Does anyone have any other…See More

Omni-Pod - night one - a little rocky

Posted on May 12, 2012 at 6:14am 4 Comments

Well kids, last night I went out to dinner.. had a few cocktails around the bonfire.. sugar was looking great. I was really feeling happy with how everything was going. Positive outlook on the whole ordeal.

At 2am I woke up at 47.

I do go into like ultra panic mode when I wake up in the middle of the night low.. it's scary.

So I decided to make an executive decision (as my Dad would say ;))

I temp basal'd to -50%.

I woke up at 5:30am at 87.

Then I woke up at 8:30…

Omni-Pod Pump Start - Today

Didn't sleep very well last night.. thought the several glasses of wine with a friend in the evening would help.. but it didn't.

Just kind of emotional... excited but nervous, ready but not..

I've must've read my list of things to take with me to the Doctor's appointment 10 times..

My sugars have been running pretty low this last week.. I wonder if I should email my Doctor that so they know before I go in my for appointment today.

We have about a 30 minute drive to…

Raging diabetic, new to the community..

Couple questions (sure more to come)

If I post a blog, does it automatically post to the groups I've joined?

Do I have to be friends with people to read/comment - or as long as I'm part of the groups that I'm interested in?

What's the friend aspect about? Similar to facebook?

Now on to what I'd really like to discuss

Welcome home! Being diagnosed and living with Diabetes is one of the hardest things anyone can ever go through. However, you no longer have to do it alone. TuDiabetes is a great place to seek support, information, advice, and general friendship. Be sure to introduce yourself on the forums; tell us your story. Also, take part in a conversation or lose yourself in the tons and tons of information. If you need any help or have any questions, feel free to ask! - Matt

Welcome to the family!! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
