Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I am eighteen. Wow, looking back I can see so may things I would change and things I wouldn't change for the world. I look back a my highs and lows (not referring to BG's) wondering if my diabetes did have anything to do with it and the truth is 80% of the time it was. Coming up in July I will also be celebrating my 9th diaversary... I don't know what to say about that, that I have had diabetes for half of my life and it honestly hasn't been that long, that I know more about this disease…See More

Driving While Low

Driving with diabetes is a BIG deal. In Georgia it counts as a DUI if you wreck you car due to low blood sugar, WHAT!!!! Yeah and I won't argue about it, it is my responsibility to make sure my blood sugar is in range and no one else can worry about it. It would be my fault if I wrecked my car or even worse hurt someone else. Anywho today was probably one of the first experiences I have had with low blood sugar and diabetes:Read the rest here…See More

Good Bye Dexcom I miss You

Posted on October 9, 2012 at 3:07pm 0 Comments

...So anywho the reason this week has been incredible is because I got to use a dexcom for a whole week! I loved every moment of it, I was really quite scared I wouldn't like it or it would annoy me but it didn't, every alert for a high and low was a welcome relief and really helped me keep more on track because I knew that if I didn't take my insulin Dexie would go off and comforting because it went off at 80 instead of me waiting on a low 60 to feel it.I loved watching the screen to see…
