"you must've nicked a "larger than a cappilary" blood vessel. no worries, compression to stop the bleeding, ice maybe if it swells a little, black and blue for 3 days and then gone."

what happened at injection site?

I recently started using an insulin pump a few months ago. Everything has been fine until, today when I changed the infusion set. I pulled out the old set and started rapidly gushing blood from the injection site. The bleeding has stopped, but I now have a small, swollen black ring, about the size of a pencil eraser, around the opening. Has anyone ever had this happen before. Will it go away soon, or leave a scar. Why might this have happened? Is this an infection? My boyfriend's mother is a…See More

Trouble getting back on track after a bad day

Posted on March 21, 2008 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

As stated in the previous post, my levels have been amazing for about a month.



That came to an end one warm pre-spring day when my boyfriend, and I were tossing a football at the park. I felt tired and tested at 28. Therefore, off to Rita's we quested for a gelati (alex's lemonade w/ vanilla cream) Some time went by and I tested again - reaching only 37.



Because it seemed to be taking so long to come out of that dangerous low, my bf purchased a chocolate chip cookie for me… Continue

So I've been having an awesome month...

Typically my readings are waves of highs and lows and I have to adjust the amount of insulin I take accordingly. Lately, my blood sugar has been right on target every time I test. I'm not sure why this is happening but I certainly can't complain. I have been looking forward to taking my A1Cs again with the possibility that I would see a lower number. things were looking up. however, I've noticed that my readings have been too high or too low over the past four days, and I'm not aware that I am… Continue

My name is Jenna. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 2 years ago, when I turned 21. I try to learn as much as I can about the disease, but much of the literature out there seems distant and rather depressing. I'm sick of reading about complications, and not having adequate insurance covereage. I'm glad to have discovered this blog as I am craving first hand information from real people who are going through this with me. I'm looking forward to feeling like I'm not alone.
