The word "diabetes"....

Maybe I'm just a little burnt out on diabetes talk, or something, but what I'm more burnt out on anything is the word diabetes. How many times a day do you think you say or write the word "diabetes."…Continue

I Think About My Diabetes When...

"Excellent video, very elucidating. Beautifully conveys what it's like to be us, where our heads are so much of the time, and how all-pervasively diabetes colors our every waking moment. Anyone who lives with a PWD -- or just wants to understand…"

Two days ago I was walking through the hallway in my building and these two young women, probably both around 20 years old, were yelling at each other. One young woman was African American, the other was Indian.

"I don't like you! I don't like you!" one of them was saying.

The other said, "That's fine. I don't like you."

The first responded, "Listen, I don't like you. I DO NOT have to respect…

If I wasn't diabetic...just for a day.

I often think about what it would be like to not have Type 1 diabetes just for one day. Honestly, I know I'm supposed to say I'd run around drinking soda and eating sour patch kids all day, but I think I'd just spend all day thinking about my blood sugar!

It would be so hard to believe and trust that my body really was regulating itself. To wake up in the morning and not need to check my blood sugar before taking my dog for a long walk? To eat breakfast and…

Loved your Video "Type 1 vs. Type 2 Diabetes" you did an AMAZING job on it! Everyone should watch it.

I must say, I've not met very many people like you. Most people I know would be having an all out war over the video. It's pretty cool to find someone who can clearly see the danger of fighting fire with fire.

You are welcome, any form of D is a total frustration.

I admire your optimism and strength.

Hey Ginger!
So on your video, you totally could have turned it into a huge fight, but you never did. I admire you for that. Its really an amazing thing. :)
