"Rick, I agree with you about a cure. It would be wonderful, but we have to live in the here & now. I love what you say about setting sights forward. I do hope my son's children won't have to face this. Best to you!"

What Brings Me Down #DBlogWeek

May is Mental Health Month so now seems like a great time to explore the emotional side of living with, or caring for someone with, diabetes. What things can make dealing with diabetes an emotional issue for you and / or your loved one, and how do you cope?Benny was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just before he turned two. I remember a tough conversation in his hospital room at 3am with a well-meaning doctor. We were talking about daycare and work and I promptly burst into tears. Benny reached…See More

Diabetes Life Hacks - #DBlogWeek

Posted on May 16, 2014 at 4:52am 3 Comments

Share the (non-medical) tips and tricks that help you in the day-to-day management of diabetes. Please remember to give non-medical advice only!

I don’t really have any good advice for today’s prompt. The best we’ve come up with is using a paper clip on the meter case when the zipper breaks. But I do have a sort of reverse diabetes-hack.

There are times when having diabetes can actually come in handy. I carry snacks in my purse and in my car. There’s usually a juice…

Mantras & More #DBlogWeek

Posted on May 15, 2014 at 1:54pm 0 Comments

Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day. Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day. Is there something positive you tell yourself? Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through? Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost? Maybe we've done that and we can help others do it too?

"The only weapon I have is comedy," said the great Mel Brooks. I'm not in that league, but I try…

Hey Stacey - next time I'm visiting friends in Charlotte, I'll have to give you a holler! We come down every couple of years. And yes, diabetes is always a roller coaster ride at times, but the main thing is, WE ARE ALIVE. I've been thru' cancer a few times over my 42 years of having diabetes (since age 7) - and D compared to what I went thru' there, is nothing. Since I've had D all my life, it's just part of who I am, we work together as a team, and life has been good so far! With improvements in diabetic management, Benny should do great, and especially with a Mum like you beside him to help him thru' the hurdles!
