I'm totally freaked. I cant believe how hard it is to accept change. It seems to be happening everywhere.
Changing themes/schemes. Fashion statements. Trying to find new clothes with the same comfortable fit seems impossible. I love rainbows of colors. WHY is so hard to accept this little thing called change?
Where do I fit in this? What happened?
How autistic of me to not be able to just go with the flow. I look at this and want to run away.

Last Friday I met with Tandy my Minimed pump trainer and Nancy my CDE to get started on my pump. I spent this past weekend getting used to using the pump (pushing the buttons) and showing my wife how it works. Tomorrow I meet again with Tandy and we will start a saline trial. Then on Friday hopefully insulin at last.
It’s funny how it has taken a year to get the pump. This time last year I was struggling trying to keep my BG’s below 300 and everyone was saying the pump was the way to… Continue

Today I signed up for a personal trainer. I have been talking to the guy and really decided it was a good thing for me. He is also doubling as a nutritionist so theres a double. We were talking about my goals and diabetes and he sounds really qualified. I would not consider myself overweight by any means, but I would like to slim down and build more muscle and less body fat. I will be training with him 4 times a week and hopefully I will see some change in no time.
One thing I also… Continue

Yes, it's leaked over the place. The water is shut off, the windows are open, and the fans are starting to get the moisture out. The tank itself is within its ten year warranty. Tomorrow the plumbing company who installed it will get the call to come fix it. Condo unit downstairs is empty, owner moved to AZ, a Realtor is handling it. and I have no contact info for either of them. I will call the condo mgt company to see if they have a contact. I will talk to my home-owner's insurance agent… Continue

my doctor the other day told me that i have at least a few more years of horrible control like this before i see major complications.
i am constantly thinking that every little pain i have is a stroke, that every blur of my vision is my eyes going blind, that it's all falling apart... and i wonder how much more my body can really take before i get better control.

Well it's been almost three months since I was diagnosed with type one diabetes.
After two weeks of being diagnosed I started to struggle with lows (nothing serious) and ate a lot of food to keep my bg from going down. I spent a lot of time researching and discovered that I was probably going through the honeymoon phase. After a short visit to the endo it was confirmed.. at that point I was already adjusting my fast acting. Now I'm down from 12 units to 2 units of basil & no… Continue

School called a few hours ago – crap – I forgot to send carb counts for Kim’s lunch today. (It’s Monday.)
Quick – how many carbs are in a chocolate pudding? And you know it’s not the sugar free stuff we eat at home. Ummmmm Calorie King says a snack size serving (4 oz) is 26 carbs. Great! Lets go with that. Okay – Corn dogs, 30, Hash browns, 11, Green beans, 2, peaches, 17, chocolate milk, 26, chocolate pudding 26 – That’s 112 carbs!!!!
How can a 38 lb 5-year old eat 112… Continue

I though I'd focus on LADA
as part of my post today, for Type 1 Diabetes Awareness Day, since LADA (also called type 1.5 by some) is a close cousin of type 1 diabetes:

Ok, here goes my first blog....So I've had t1 41 years, and been on the pump since approx 1989, you'd think I could figure things out better by now. I have an accu-check spirit, and i've always used mini-med sof-sets. I normally change every 3 days, but the past month, i'm lucky if i can go 2days without changing my set. i thought it might be something changing in my skin or something, because God knows a lot of crazy things have been going on in my bod the past couple of years (i'm 53), and my… Continue

Things are crazy busy right now, I have to give a 1 hour presentation on Vitamin D at the hospital tomorrow morning. Why do I always wait until the last moment to finish my slides? This is a song that I love and feel sums up some of the feelings of type 1 diabetes. It's not as personal as "my story" but it's what I can do today.

Today is Type 1 Diabetes Awareness Day, and while there are likely to be dozens of blog postings on this subject today, I am never one to follow convention with more of the same, so I've chosen to acknowledge this day without being redundant.
What are the origins of this day? Well, because "diabetes" is a generic term that describes the symptoms of a… Continue

I am raising my voice to educate people about Type 1 Diabetes. I am the mother of a three year old daughter who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on June 12th, 2007. I thought I knew a lot about diabetes before she was diagnosed, but I quickly found out that I knew very little. I’m raising my voice because even though my family is learning more and more about this disease every day there are many people throughout our world who still do not know… Continue

That can't be right -- just like 78 from a cold fingertip, in the postprandial period, can't be right.
Not only that, but if 95.9 is
right, that's downright effin' dangerous...
The Other Half and I were sitting in bed, watching the TiVO'd NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, and I'm falling asleep (not odd; it's after midnight) and shivering uncontrollably. We'd done enough munching out… Continue

New Jersey, The Jug-Handle State.
We're the only state in the Union where left turns are illegal... unless you're a $mart@$$ in a luxury car with government plates, or something. If you're from out-of-state, a "jug-handle" is a right-lane ess-curve exit (veer right to clear the main road, then turn left onto the crossroad). The goal is to remove left-turn traffic from the main road onto a parallel "just to turn left from" road. The alternative, in a number of smaller suburban… Continue
