I just managed to take 12 units of Novolog instead of Levemir (might not seem like a lot to some of you, but I am very insulin sensitive and my needs are less). I have never done this and I am…Continue

Do you hold onto your outdated insulin

For some reason, I can't seem to let go of my outdated, half used vials of insulin.  For me, It's levemir an novolog.  I am thinking that maybe it is some sort of subconcious nihilistic reaction, a…Continue

There Goes My Honeymoon

Posted on June 19, 2011 at 3:03am 1 Comment

I haven't been to the doctor yet, and I can't think of what else it could be. I was diagnosed 6 months ago, and have had a really low basal and carb to insulin ratio (8 Levemir a day and 1:25 novolog). In the past few days, my blood sugar has suddenly jumped through the roof and won't budge. Hasn't gone below 200 and has jumped as high as over 400. I feel like crap, foggy, exhausted, upset stomach, gave myself a damn yeast infection, etc. but can't think of what to do to fix it. I have been… Continue

Just Past the 6 Month Mark!

Posted on May 22, 2011 at 11:08am 2 Comments

Wow, it is hard for me to believe that I have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for 6 months now. It still seems like just yesterday that I was diagnosed and being administered shots by my mom, who is a nurse, because I was petrified to go near the needle. It has been such an intense roller coaster, but I finally feel like I have accepted it.



There was a period of time, where I went through extreme grieving and sadness. Waking up in the middle of the night and every morning, with the… Continue

Losing Sleep, Can't Seem To Accept My Diabetes Reality

Posted on March 29, 2011 at 1:10am 20 Comments

I haven't been able to sleep much this past month. Almost every single night, without fail, I lay in bed thinking, thinking, thinking of myself and my life without diabetes. I feel as though I am obsessed and I don't know where to direct this excess mental/emotional energy. I cannot let go of the person I was up until 2 1/2 months ago. Her life looks so much more glamorous than mine. I can't stop thinking that I took it for granted, and I should have done so much more. I am dredging up old… Continue

Food Changes, Blood Sugar Changes

Posted on February 19, 2011 at 10:44pm 4 Comments

I have been eating a "Paleo" diet for about 5 days now. I have essentially cut out all grains, most dairy (I am still putting milk in my coffee), refined sugars and even legumes. So, what have I been eating? For breakfast something along the lines of berries with homemade cashew cream, dessicated coconut, walnuts and cinnamon. Lunch, a big giant salad with everything under the moon (including some protein, such as a hard boiled egg). Dinner, marinated chicken, homemade tomato soup and green… Continue

Hey Frankie...I was thinking of your post and I already replied to it but I love to listen to music and songs that have lyrics that make sense to me and I have a song that I listen a lot and it reminds me of when I felt like you did and also how I don't want to miss out on this beautiful world! If you like music go and listen to the lyrics for "Beautiful World" by Carolina Liar. I have it as a song on my page or you can find it on YouTube.

I Love this band as they have some great songs with meaning, The lead singer commented that is is a song about one of those days when you just don't want to get up, you just want to stay in bed, but the world demands you and you know you have to, and you realize how beautiful this world is and that you almost missed it. this song is for the days when you just do not want to face the world right now. I hope you like it!!

Hi Frankie...thanks for the add :-)

Hope that you are feeling better and getting the support you need. As with most on TuD if you ever need a chat (or vent lol) feel free to msg me!

I know how you are feeling, went through the same type of thing when I was dx'ed. You have to let yourself go through it, and also make yourself accept it and LIVE.....Darling, keep fighting, you must!! Set a date, and tell yourself that is the time you will move forward with this "D"...baby steps. Life is good......sometimes it just takes a little while to to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Be strong....you are so worth taking care of and enjoying life again. xo
