"Hi Ellen. I'm glad that you have a reserve as well. I always worry about my insulin reserve--what if the power goes off and it all gets too hot? What if the fridge malfunctions and freezes it all? I think all PWDs live day by day, a little bit…"

Anything you liked is worth sharing!

Bad Days, Brain Fog... (DBlog)

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? (Thanks to Meri of Our Diabetic Life for suggesting this…

My Stuff (DBlog)

Wildcard Day: "Write a short story personifying a diabetes tool you use on a daily basis. A meter, syringe, pump, pill, etc. Give it a personality and a name and let it speak through you. What would it be happy about, upset about, mad about? "

I am a DMB (Diabetes Messenger Bag) and my name is Stuff. I have special powers: I can mind-meld with Mom's computer, and I'm on the same wavelength as HPP (Hot Pink Paperclip), who lives on Word. He winks and…

Seasons of 2014 (DBlog)

Winter Haiku

Icicles are poised

to stab, sharp as my lancets.

Our winter lingers.



Finally May



The world is changing, these first weeks in May.

Trees unfurl their leaves, green and rust.

The first flowers of spring punctuate the landscape with purple and gold.

Colors drop from the sky.

Tiny warblers leave their flock, staking out new territories.

Colors come in different sizes, ruby red hummers, cerulean blue…

Hi Trudy, I finally was delivered one Novolog vial and some syringes. I got your package and will use the tips on the pens that I have left. Thank goodness I have a reserve. I am so stressed out by this new health care. I didn't think anyone could be that disorganized or make that many serious mistakes. I am still here though and I am thankful for that. It is all that matters.
I am heading down to the pool for some R & R. It was cloudy but now the sky has cleared up and the weather is perfect for swimming. I feel like fall is in the air a little because our weather cooled off.
My garden is really going nuts. Some tomatoes were ripe, a whole bowl of cherries. It was delicious. My parsley grew back after someone chowed down on it. I went out and found just stems. Chris spent this morning cutting the grass and weeding and watering.
How is your weekend going? I hope that everyone at your house is doing well. Pet the puppies. Ellen
