I'm sure this strange phenomenon has happened to us all at one point or another..... you're in class, and everyone is taking a test, so it's eerily quiet. Then, all the sudden your meter/pump/cgm starts beeping louder than you ever thought possible, and everyone's head turns and stares at you. This is a collection of some of my most memorable "beepy" moments.
1.)THE METER- I'm in language arts class, towards the beginning of the school year, and I'm doing a BG check under my desk, and…Continue

What's been going on since my last recovery post? Not much, everything is going well. I'm feeling close to normal. I will point out a few things about my recovery that I didn't mention in previous posts, though. The following can be considered private or touchy material which is why I originally didn't mention some of them.
1. Although my libido is healthy and rarin' to go, my husband is…Continue

I am fairly new to this site and its amazing! I am looking for some input/suggestions from people with type 1 diabetes on insulin pumps that run and do half marathons.

Any stories/advice anyone wants to give are greatly appreciated. I have been active now since…Continue
I woke up in range this morning, but ever since I ate breakfast I have been high. My lowest reading since this morning has been 11.5 (207) but most have been between 13-15 all day. Constant corrections, site change, cartridge change, no ketones.
I was supposed to spend all day working on my thesis edits but instead spent most of it konked out napping because I am exhausted! I think I'm becoming more sensitive to high blood sugar than I used to be. Never used to get so tired when I was…Continue

Hello, I am currently 14 years old and I want to become a walrus. I know there’s a million people out there just like me, but I promise you I’m different. On December 14th, I’m moving to Antartica; home of the greatest walruses. I’ve already cut off my arms, and now slide on my stomach everywhere I go as training. I may not be a walrus yet, but I promise you if you give me a chance and the support I need, I will become the greatest walrus.

I was reflecting in chat the other day about the little things I have learned over the past 40 years. This is not an exhaustive list or even a great list, just little things I have learned along the way that might be helpful to others, well or not,
10. Being diabetic can be fun, especially if you take pleasure in freaking people…
Well I'm finally finished school for the summer,so now it's time to relax and enjoy life!!

6/25/2014 Today for breakfast I had 2 poached eggs on 1 piece of whole wheat toast. Lunch at 12:30 pm was 1/3 cup of broiled chicken and rice. Couldn't eat anymore than this and felt very full. Took my evening injection at 5:30pm and waiting to eat something at 6:30. I am actually a little hungry and stomach is growling. No bathroom runs…
