Well, I have not posted in a VERY long time. I don't want to start writing and have it be blah blah blah poor old me. I try and be an upbeat outgoing person. But lately, it's been hard and I feel like it's all a great big act. I am soooo out of control with my eating, weight and diabetes that's it's ridiculous. I have no idea what to do or where to start. I am going through way too much insulin trying to bring my BG's down, and it's not even working. I filled my resevoir on my pump up on…Continue

I've been seeing a Neurologist because of painful legs, that is not Neuropathy. This has been going on for a while. The doctor put me on Lyerica and it helps, sometimes. Now he has decided that further studies need to be done like a doppler test and special bloodwork. I'm wondering has anyone had this experience and what was the outcome? It's frustrating from day-to-day when I wake up I never know what the day will be like. Whether I'll be able to exercise; will I be able to shop; will I be…Continue
My name is Shannon and 2007 brings me to my 20th year as a Type 1 diabetic. We should have reunions/celebrations for these types of things, come to think of it. Anyone up for it?
I was 12 when I was diagnosed in 1987. I took injections for 17 years and then began insulin pump therapy in 2004. What stands out most to me was early on feeling like I was the only one with this disease. Today, we live in a much different world, where diabetes is a very familiar disease. I'm thankful for…Continue

NUMB! I panic... I told my family my…Continue
My holiday walks are happening with all the whimsey of the weather gods in attendance. Yesterday, wet and cold, I stood under the sinewy arms of the Madrona tree and wept for all the unnecessary horror let loose in the world right now......
Today, I stood laughing out loud with the jolly garden hotei, his upraised arms holding a wild red poinsettia and a delightfully silly reindeer nestled at his side. And I turned my face to the brief appearance of the sun, soaking it up and feeling…Continue
