Your Tu Diabetes - A Social Network for Diabetics Box

You do not want to screw with me. I am FIERCE.
Do I so worry you, you need to hurry to my side?
It's very kind
But it's to no avail; I don't want the bail
I promise you, everything will be just fine

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm an extraordinary machine

My Word In A Hand

Posted on November 2, 2007 at 12:14pm 1 Comment

I thought a lot about what word to write in my hand to describe diabetes, its effects on my life, how I feel about it.

At first, I wanted to write "FIERCE," but decided that the word FIERCE is really a reflection of how I deal with my diabetes, FIERCE is what I am in the face of the many challenges it presents.

Then, I considered "OVERBLOWN," but quickly shot that idea down. The truth is diabetes is as signficant as it seems - it is, in fact, more significant than it is…


Wow! It's been awhile since I posted on here....

So... I figured I'd let you know what I've been up to...

As always, you can find me at my blog - Curious Girl.

Or - and this explains in part what I've been up to - you can check out this cool new site from dlife, where I'll be blogging - with a bunch of my other esteemed colleagues - about all things diabetes. Please check it out…

Sounds like the name of an 80s punk rock band. But it's not. It's just the way my day started this morning.


The blaring of the battery alarm woke me up from a dead sleep...

The pump screen is blank. Man. I put in a new battery on the off chance that this might help. It doesn't - the alarming continues. One call to Smiths and one call to the doctor and one call to CVS later - and I'm on Lantus until my new pump arrives. Damn it.

I really resent being dependent…

An oxymoron? I think not.

A 6 am class this morning kicked my butt.

As I tried to focus on staying centered, drawing breath, and strengthening/lengthening, a little voice in the back of my mind was screaming "Are you nuts? It's not even 7 am! What the hell are you doing to me? You're going to do what with that leg?" In at least one pose, it was all I could do to stifle a giggle as I tried to keep my form...

But I feel really good now - and I know it was worth it. Still -…

Hey there,
Wondering how are you doing.

Hello All,
So i'm on the hunt for Facebook Members. I have created a page for my son Rial who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on March 25th, 2010. Here is what I would like to see happen, ONE MILLION MEMBERS on his page. I know this sounds like a unrealistic number, but then again we never thought in a million years that he would have this disease. We have no family history of it and it just sneaked its way into our lives.
So please become members, suggest to your friends and loved ones and lets make this happen. I would LOVE to show my son on his one year anniversary that he has ONE MILLION MEMBERS and show him that he is not in this fight all alone. That there are people who care, who go through this too, parents who have children with this horrible disease and together we can fight this thing and we will find a CURE!
Here is the link to his Facebook!/group.php?gid=104342299605534&ref=ts

I thank you all for your love and support!
Truly Blessed Mom
