I'm just watching Good Morning America and I see that the Jonas Brothers are set to perform in a few minutes. There are like a million fans screaming and waiting to watch them...it's ridiculous.
I was just thinking...wouldn't it be awesome if in the middle of their set, in front of all the live fans and the billions watching at home, superstar Nick Jonas would whip out his trusty blood glucose monitor and test himself?
I can picture him announcing his result on the mic,… Continue

Hope you all had a wonderful week!!!! Well, I think my daughter is turning the corner and is now interested in possibly going to the pump. Her educator mentioned yesterday the new One Touch Ping. I know this is just super brand new and is just now being made available, but I am a complete novice in this area and I am looking for some HONEST opinions about that one as well as what you all think of the Omni Pod or any others! Remember, she is 13 and very self consicious… Continue

Myth #2 - I can’t get any more creative.
If you’ve asked yourself the question, what can I add to my own creativity to get better,
then you’re on the right track. Creative thinkers don’t usually get more creative…they temper themselves with something almost opposite.
Here’s some examples:
You can add technical knowledge.
You can add a stronger work ethic.
You can add a closely related skill.
You can add friends with the same creative… Continue

I had my last doctor's appointment before my move to Eastern Washington on Tuesday. I left there frustrated. The more I think about it, the more frustrated I become. He really didn't listen to me. He's not a diabetic doctor, as when I was diagnosed I didn't have insurance, and once I got insurance, preexisting conditions, "Blah, blah, blah"...we all know the story.
But my frustration lies within this. When we talked about my numbers I mentioned that I tend to go low, and lately have… Continue

Myth #1 - I’m not a creative person.
Well, that’s not true. You may not be a very
creative person…but you do have some
Most people think that you’re either born with creativity or you’re not…and while there’s some truth to that, we’re all given some
creativity to work with. Creativity doesn’t always mean that you can paint an oil masterpiece or compose a concerto in B minor. If that were the case…I’d be the least creative person on… Continue

Today has been pretty crap! So tired all the time and barely had energy to work today, but i worked anyways. Hungry almost all the time. Just had dinner, but still hungry. And i have one h*ll of a headache which has haunted me all day. Just feel like sleeping...
The whole day has just been some kind of fog for me. Luckily i know my job well, so i just worked on "auto pilot" and didn't need to think much. Couldn't really focus anyways.
Could go to the emergency clinic and have… Continue

I imagine you've all received several e-mails from various friends over the last month or so. It's that time of year...fund-raising season.
I don't want to be left out of the party, so I'm doing my own personal fund-raiser activity for Dr. Denise Faustman

I'm going to be participating in the Hyannis Sprint II triathlon on September 6th. It's a sprint triathlon so… Continue

It's been four months since abby's bad news. this week has been hard. she went high. we had to adjust her meal ratios and up her lantus.
scared. helpless. frustrated. small. that's how i feel when she hits highs. i hate her having db. i try not to think about it much. it may not be healthy, but i cope. one meal at a time. one day at a time. i do not research what effect bad diabetes management has on a body. i don't want to know. i would be even more scared when i see those numbers.… Continue

Not a life or death situation...but I just dropped my bottle of Humalog in the kitchen, where there is a 75% chance that it will break on the tile floor. Simply too many casualties to count over the years...oh and that skinny Lantus bottle...make it a 90% chance of breakage. Don't even get me started on that insulin smell...yuck.
Luckily because of my ninja-like reflexes, I was able to save the doomed bottle by breaking the fall with a supple hacky sack foot… Continue

i had my first endo appointment in 8 months.
i had bloodwork done. i hate having blood drawn.
i walked in and immediately starting talking about what has improved, rather than allow the doctor to start chastizing about how my numbers haven't come down.
it worked. i didn't get yelled at, i actually got encouragement.
then i went to have my first chiropractic adjustment to see if i can achieve any relief from the nerve pains in my legs and feet. my entire back is… Continue

Back in November 2007, I featured a post
in which I said that there were signs that pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Company was reconsidering the company's type 1 diabetes strategy, particularly given their partnership with MacroGenics, Inc. to develop and commercialize teplizumab, which is a humanized anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody. In effect,… Continue

I'm just so sick of not feeling well!!! I've been at work today, fulltime day. Been up since 5.30am, worked from 8am to 4pm, got home nearly 1h ago now. Been feeling like s*** all day! During my workday i've been to the bathroom about once every hour! It was especially bad after lunch break. Felt like just going to sleep then, and I can't believe i had time to work at all because i went to bathroom so much :S
I haven't been able to test anything through the day, but it feels like i've been… Continue

Upon noting that for the past couple days, CWD's Quilt for Life was on display in Washington, DC, I clicked over to the CWD site to find out more about the project. After finding out the technical specifications, I started wondering whether or not I could design a patchwork block based on diabetes. With blood glucose tests so common to all people with diabetes, and many glucometers being packaged in similar teardrop designs, I had an inspiration to work from.
I've posted… Continue

Several days ago, I got a call, seemingly out of the blue, from a company called ASM Clinical, asking me about my diabetes testing habits. It turns out they are the referred "salesperson" from Simple Diagnostics, regarding my application for a free Clever Chek monitor. ASM Clinical is not a point of retail sale -- they are a point of… Continue
