I've been thinking of y complete life and I have realized that when someone is diagnosed with diabetes it actually means the end of a life style and the start of a new life. I've been living 7 years of a new life and let me tell you, I wouldn't change it for anything.
through all this years I've learned how to manage diabetes, how not to be afraid, how to think of and the most important how to treasure it. I love the moments in which Diabetes isn't that bad, when it is just something… Continue

Everyday when I wake up I make a little prayer that my readings are in single figures and then I have hope for the rest of the day that I will have remarkable readings.
Then I see the 11`s and 15`s so I have to take my prayer back and figure out what to eat to balance that out so some lemon tea and toast (one slice by the way) and I do my best to get my carbohydrate count on point, in order to get that remarkable reading I head out for a walk to bring it down from that 11 or that… Continue

The advantage of exercising every day
is so when you die, they'll say,
'Well, she looks good doesn't she.'

Hard to believe it's been two weeks. I do feel like I have more energy now than I did when I started. It wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be, and I probably will do it again sometime. Hard to know if toxins were actually removed from my system, I imagine they were. I had great elimination throughout! I had several low blood sugars to contend with, but not enough to keep me from doing another cleanse in the future.
I'm planning on easing back into a normal diet. Though I'm… Continue

A smile starts on the lips, A grin spreads to the eyes, A chuckle comes from the belly; But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, Overflows, and bubbles all around
Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful

My numbers have been great. With the new insertion sets, my BG average is slowly coming back to normal. But now I'm faced with something completely different.
I'm exhausted. I have a whole load of symptoms, but mainly I'm exhausted. I'm falling asleep every couple hours. The doctor is kind of baffled. They drew blood (four times!) on Tuesday, and their main concern is with my kidneys. I've had protein in my urine for a few years before I was diagnosed. We used to see a kidney… Continue

Its been a rough year, but I am thankful everyday, I know about my diabetes...
A year ago I was:
Terrified, sad, in denial... What was this, was I going to go blind, loose my legs...kidneys. More importantly, would I be able to be active and be able to support my family, that was the biggest fear. I hid my fear, offering to do laundry only to afford me a private place to cry. I went to my first Diabetes expo, and felt only overwhelmed and terrified.
Now: I am strong,… Continue

Well it has been AGES since I’ve updated my blog. As many of you know, I’m ‘back’ in school pursuing another degree in Child Studies/Home Visiting with a minor in Family Studies. I’m happy to report that I’ll graduate May 14, YEEE HAWWW! I say all this because last semester took all of my time and energy and that is why there have been no blog updates.
HOWEVER, so much has happened over the last few months. I’ll probably take the next few entries to share some of what we’ve… Continue

For those of us who have been living in the diabetes world for a year or to, it is very obvious to us that we have our own language and way of doing things. It is common for a mother of a two year old with diabetes who is throwing a tantrum to state in a stern voice, "You had better be high Missy!!" They are used to the odd looks that they receive as people are racing to call Child Protective Services on the parent who seems okay with their toddler… Continue
