After failing to do my 4pm-midnight basal test the previous day due to all the craziness that ensued (and my high sugar reading at the start of the test) I decided to go all the way and fast for almost 24 hours to get my 8am-midnight readings in one shot. I was determined!
The night before, having no need to fast I made sure to stuff my face in preparation for the day-long fasting torture the next day. I even set my alarm for 3am in case my sugar needed adjustment, as I needed it to…Continue
A new study published in the American Journal of Medicine has revealed a potential benefit from the use of cannabis. The article, entitled “The Impact of Marijuana Use on Glucose, Insulin, and Insulin Resistance among U.S. Adults,” investigated the blood sugar-related effects of cannabis use among participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2005 to 2010.

The boy scout law
Yesterday the Boys Scouts of America voted to formerly allow bi and homosexual scouts to participate in the organization. This action, which I support, set off new reports and elation as well as disgust and outrage. The thing is now that the vote has occurred and policy will be implemented we now must find ways to heal the organization. I feel that both sides raised valid and valuable points. I just feel…Continue

As I came home this morning from an early morning walk my new puppy was waiting for me at the door I sat down to take of my shoes and she put her paws on my leg and swifted her wet little puppy nose on my side I sat there and for that quick little moment only a few second I forgot all about my diabetes I realized just then that I found my cure if I can remember this very little moment then I will have the cure for ever and ever. maybe just maybe the cure is out there you just need to find it…Continue

By the time I made it to work the morning after my sleepless night, having done my midnight to 8am overnight basal fasting test, I was already exhausted and groggy. It didn't help to find a stack of papers on my desk and several emails on my work computer pointing to some urgent matters that needed my immediate attention - and what's worse: immediate action! I made an effort with the attention part having looked over and read the correspondence, but the action would have to wait. At 10am I…Continue

Yesterday morning I entered Arden's room about an hour before her alarm was scheduled to sound. Her DexCom G4 was asking to be calibrated and so I put a test strip into the OmniPod PDM, turned the MultiClix to a new lance and took my daughter's hand in mine.
I read this and started thinking about the things i had to change in my life. I notice people stating that cancer and diabetes and other dx's etc. can sometimes be a good thing. I have listed the thing that i have changed since being dx in 8/2012 with T1D that many people would believe to be a good thing.
quit drinking alcohol
and also acknowledge god a lot more
rather then just on Sundays or at night or when i eat i talk to…
As I posted yesterday I did not play baseball as a kid. What I was involved in was Boy Scouts. I joined in 1969 and in February 1971, I earned the rank of Eagle. In October 1974 I was blessed with being named a vigil member of the Order of Arrow. Both honors mean a great deal to me.
I mention this because today May 23, 2013 the Boy Scouts are due to vote on a universal proposition to allow gay youths into…Continue

Taking my daughter to Paris and I'm wondering how smooth it is to travel abroad with a CGM. How strict is TSA, do I ask for a pat down, can you go thru the security w/o difficulties? Any advise would be helpful. I have just recently donned the CGM and after having diabetes for over 40 years I have become dependent on the CGM and don't really like to be without it. My blood sugars have never been better! thanks for any and all advice. Also, what has been your favorite thing about Paris, if…Continue
One of my best friends who was there when I was diagnosed, left me a sweet message on facebook about her finding my blog inspirational! It made my day to see that talking about diabetes does make a difference!
As I got ready for bed around 10pm on a Tuesday night I prayed that my blood sugar would behave itself at least until I start my overnight fasting basal test. I really didn't want to put it off any longer. My sugar hasn't been great lately. I've fallen off my work-out and healthy eating wagon and I desperately wanted to climb back on it again. I mean I wrote a book about this stuff - you'd think I'd follow my own advice! Just proves how difficult dealing with diabetes is, and how being a…Continue
I am having troubles right now with too many lows.I have reduced my TTD and I get very discouraged easily.I hate how a BS reading of more than 11mmol makes me feel.I need some words of encouragement as I try to find the right settings.If I at least stop the lows I can correct them and go from there.I have Pumping Insulin by John Walsh where it tells you how much to reduce your TTD but my pump totals aren't on the chart as I am on a small amount of insulin.

Baseball and Diabetes
It is spring, and baseball is in the air. I never played sports as a kid, but when my sons got to be older they fell in love with the game. Both my sons played first base, pitched and played in some games as, catcher, outfield, third and second base. Each son was a fine hitter and my wife, I and the family loved going to the games and we followed them all over the Midwest watching them play.
I think what I loved…Continue
What are some D Apps you use/like/recommend on your smart phones? I just joined the smart phone world and am in awe.
Here's my post from Saturday morning, I thought I would share it with y'all..
I know I don’t normally post on a Saturday, but this is a special occasion.
I had my 1st “long run” scheduled for this morning.

Just because you are traveling to a place you live only means you are on the way home. The biggest part of you has stayed behind, only your body has left. You are split and torn since you are in two places at once. The only way to heal is to get both your mind and your body in the same place. Until that happens you're not home, you just visit from time to time but never stay. You always end up where ever your mind is.
