I took her to her boyfriends house because he said he didn't have the gas to come and get her, then I find out they went to pick up one of his friends for tonight.....boy did I get hosed.

I am looking for some help getting in touch with a video game developer (or a few) who would be able to help a group of us with a project we are working on in a course related to our masters.
The project is an 'active' (think: nintendo wii) video game, designed for children aged 8-10 who have type one diabetes. The objective of the game is to facilitate healthy lifestyle management with respect to fitness and nutrition.
For those of you concerned with… Continue

Took this from one of my other sites (cafemom.com) Figured I would share here... the initial incident happened on 9/28/08... so that's when I wrote this first part... the "update" happened the NEXT night :(
Unfortunately last night I woke up at 3 am (ish) w/ about 6 paramedics standing at my bedside, administering some IVs and stuff in my arm to raise my blood sugar. Apparently I woke Jonathan (hubby) up from my "gasps" for air as he described it. He tried to get me to… Continue

Today I start my new medication - the birth control pill, Yasmin, and Glucophage. The pill will help to regulate my periods, which will in turn help me to regulate my blood sugar. The glucophage is a trial run for a month.
When I spoke to my doctor yesterday, he agreed that my current insulin taking wasn't working. He noticed all the lows on my logs, and suggested that we give glucophage a trial run. I'm really glad to be changing my medication, particularly as he said that the… Continue

Be careful today with all the sweets and candies around!!!
I'm at work and there are Krispy Kremes, cookies, candy, etc.
WTF people?! It's a good thing I don't like sweets. I would be in trouble.
Haha, Happy Halloween TuDiabetes.com! Have a good one

So the games begin. Even with my parents insurance, it looks like I might have to start choosing between diabetic supplies and bills. And get another job because I need my school loan to last out until my boyfriend gets his for next semester, which is 2 more months of rent, utilities, cable and internet, gas, and food, and diabetic supplies. Let's face some facts here, my job has too many people and not enough work, and they won't fire anyone because it's a campus job, the most I really get to… Continue

BUT... they don't love me!
Why!?! Is it the bread? Is it the jelly? I tell my pump the carb amount and sometimes I give it about 5-10 grams more! I even do a combo bolus for goodness sake!
This makes me sad... pb&j is up there with diet coke! I refuse to stop eating it!
Oatmeal is so yummy too! It doesn't matter if it is prepackaged or not... it just kills my sugars!
OH THE HORROR!!!! ;-)

Today I went to take a math test. I have an A in Algebra, an A on all tests and all assignments, and somehow I managed to flunk a quiz. Now I check my blood sugar before I take a test to make sure I am stable. If I am under 100 I won't take it until I know for sure my sugar isn't going to drop, I also have the CGMS to help monitor my sugar. I was good I was 110 and no arrows going up or down so I knew sugar was good. I emailed my instructor and told him my blood sugar crashed middle of test to… Continue

This was written on the 3rd day (Jan 1st 1998) of my stay in the hospital. Everytime I read this I get teary eyed. My mom is an amazing woman and was with me through the entire ordeal.

Lara went to the pediatrician as an afterthought tag-a-long to an older sister’s tangible complaint. I knew this pale, quant looking, lethargic ten-year old was not the Lara I’d known a couple months ago. But we reasoned growth spurt,… Continue

I have been extremely concerned about the amount of people that are not getting their insulin because they think they must have a prescription. You do not need a prescription to purchase NPH and Regular insulin except in Alaska.
This is a result of the economy and misinformation. Most people believe a prescription is required for insulin and if they can't afford to see their doctors, they will stop taking their insulin - this has… Continue

Today I get to see the Diabetes Doctor (not his official title). I'm primed with my list of questions to ask. I have printouts of my logs and graphs from my One Touch software and Sugar Stats. And - I'm as nervous as all hell. I'm plain ol' scared.
It's not because of my doctor. He's been very pleasant and patient with me. It's because I don't have a diagnosis, and it's becoming a major issue for me. It's the first thing everyone asks me. My dietitian doesn't know how to feed me… Continue

They are really easy to make in less than 30 minutes and some are even gluten free as well.
If you want to have a yummy dessert without worrying about… Continue

Got my new A1c results: 6.1
Endocrinologist's exact words (as left in my voicemail inbox):
"Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. Call me when you get pregnant."
We are closing on our house in two weeks.
As of today's weigh-in, I've lost 24.6 pounds since April.
I have been approved for my CGMS (if it will ever GET here).
Life is...pardon the expression...sweet.
