Update, tips and suggestions....

Posted on December 14, 2008 at 10:02pm 0 Comments

Realized today that I've been VERY quiet lately. It doesn't mean I've been inactive. More like very little drama - thank goodness!



I've ironed out several finer details of traveling with my supplies. I have a folder of all the medication details, a letter from my Dr. and emergency notes - who to call, what to and where the bodies are buried. Since I set up daily medication baggies, and have everything labeled with name and phone number, no one messes with my meds. I do STRONGLY… Continue

Oh what the heck!

You know how you just want things to run smooth without too many hiccups as you know you already have a full plate? Well, oh what the heck is my response!



When I last posted to you here, I was learning to juggle my two insulins and preparing for a trip to the DSWA convention in Las Vegas. Ha ha...best laid plans! In addition to a great educational event, it was also a great networking event. I had planned my wardrobe, planned on how I was going to share my product line and make new… Continue

Learning to Juggle

Posted on April 12, 2008 at 11:48pm 4 Comments

First off, thank you's to those of you that reached out to me after my last blog entry. I really was at my wits end that evening! Thank you!



You know, this Type 1 stuff is complicated! I'm over the shock and horror of having to give myself the 4 shots a day. It is a little daunting though to have to carry my meter and insulin pens everywhere though. I'll get used to it soon I'm sure though.



Can't wait to get my first meter bag from Stick Me Designs! I'm… Continue

Ch-Cha -changes...

2 week appt. Good news...no other problems/issues. Bad news...now I'm told I'm Type 1 not Type 2 after all this time. So, now add Novolog Flexpen insulin for meal times and toss all the oral meds that were not doing me any good anyway.



Now I have to learn to plan, cook, claen up, figure my meal time doses and give myself a shot while looking pretty?



Husband thinks I need a second opinion. This WAS the second opinion!



As you can tell, I'm a little… Continue

Starting in the middle...

Posted on March 30, 2008 at 9:24pm 4 Comments

That's what I feel like...like I'm starting in the middle right now. I've been on oral meds for T2 since November 2006. Still struggling with High A1c/daily bg and weight loss. Started 2006 as a full figured woman - 180 lbs at 5' 0".

Today - still 5' 0". Weighing in at 88 lbs. March 2008.



Dr I was seeing was keeping me alive and reminding me every few months that I would need to go on insulin. That was about the size of things. When I had to change insurance, I decided I needed… Continue
