Hey, my name his James and I'm 14. I was diagnosed with Diabetes on Feb 13, 2006, the day before Valentines Day! Basically I'm just a person living my life, you know, dealing with whatever comes next. My philosphy about life and diabetes is to be easygoing. I never take things over seriously, I mean we're only here for so long. I do the best to take care of myself. My last A1c was 7.4, but I'm working on getting it down. I like to think that I am in control of diabetes, even though I could be doing better. I like to be active and exercise, so I run and do Jujitsu (self-defense martial art). I enjoy music a lot, I play piano and guitar. Recently I've got a new hobby: Filmaking! check out my first film.

I was so frustrated, but I to cool myself down I just said "at leas I didn't sleep in"

Infusion Set Bad Luck

Posted on June 29, 2008 at 1:00pm 2 Comments

Friday was a bad infusin set day. That morning I changed my pump like normal, and everything went fine. Later on the adhesive became loose, so I put tape all around it. Eventually it comes out. (This is all happending while me and my band are playing music for the youth group) So I call home get a new infusin set, and my BGs fine everythings good. Then me and my friends go to Canes (local fast food) and I realize the site came out. AGAIN. I eat without taking any insulin (not a very good idea,… Continue

AHHHH! - I woke up in the middle of the night at a blood sugar of 450. Ugh, that can't be healthy. When I took my infusion set out the catheter was bent. I can't belive it. Atleast a few times during the month I get unexplained highs, because of my pump. I'm going to talk to my MiniMed rep. Any suggestions anybody???

Don't keep your Diabetes Pent-up Inside You

Posted on June 21, 2008 at 7:30am 2 Comments

I realize at times, sometimes I do keep my Diabetes pent up inside me. SO DONT. Like the subconsiouss things it made me doo. I was going through a bad BG time, so I was very anxious about my sugars I would cover up screen of my meter and slowly look at the numbers hoping for a 3s which was my problem.

Diabetes is something we need to share. At times when I was first diagnosed I would break down crying wondering "why me", but now it has made me stronger. Its a burden and, in… Continue
