My very own Diabetic Alert dog!! Interested in learning about it?

My mom was watching the news one day and a story came up about how this women is training dogs to be diabetic alert dogs. My mom contacted her and the women said we were very good candidates for the dog being my dad and I are both type 1 and my dad has seizures. She really wanted us to have one of the puppy even dropping the price dramtically, we weren't so sure how the dog we have now and that one would get along so we didn't take the offer. However she contacted us about how she is gonna take…See More

That Card

Posted on May 22, 2010 at 9:05pm 6 Comments

Everyone gets dealt a hand of cards
Weather they're the cards you wanted or not.
Over time you gain cards, some good, some bad.
I was dealt a card not to long ago
A card that I hate.
I sometimes hide this card from people.
This is a card I want to put in the shredder
and burn the pieces.
Not may people have to deal with a card
like the one I've been dealt.
I can't, no matter what I do, put…

Parent, Child Duo!!

Posted on April 13, 2010 at 3:04pm 5 Comments

Hey everyone,
My mom was talking to the JDRF represenitive of Central Iowa and South Dakota and she was saying how my dad and I both have type one diabetes. She told us that we were the only ones.

Which makes me wonder is this more rare then I thought?
Pleas give me a shout out if you are Parent, Child Duo!

Have a spectacular day,
Sydney:D

Listen to this song!!

hey everyone!
I really connect to music and relate it to life. One song I found that I loved and pulled me through the first couple months of being Diabetic. The song is Welcome To My Life by Simple Plan.The lyrics describe exactly what I was feeling. The first time I heard it i cried. The phase that touched me the most is, Are you stuck inside a world you hate? I think any diabetics can relate to this song.

Pump?

Posted on February 24, 2010 at 8:28pm 1 Comment

Hey everyone, I am really looking forward to getting a pump! Although I am not sure when i will be able to get one? How long were you on shots before you were able to get a pump. I was diagnosed last November. My sugars are VERY regular, they are rarely above 130. I HATE SHOTS! I have been looking at pumps and i really like the Omnipod. Well for now I just want to know when i can get a pump.
thanx
