I had my 3 month check-up and I am so pleased that my A1C has gone from 7.1% to 5.8%. My Triglycerides have improved ENORMOUSLY. I am so thrilled. I got a Onetouch Ultrasmart glucose meter and I am learning how to use it. I know it has been out for some time but it is new to me. I have been having fun playing with all the graphs.LOL

With November apparently being the month of acronyms and resolutions, I hearby declare my NovemberNATIONAL NO MORE FAT ARSE MONTH
It's been 1 year and 20 pounds since I was diagnosed with diabetes. Ok, 30 pounds. Which is as big as a CHILD. Like a fully functional, talking, walking child. This must go. It's time to abandon this freeloader of an unwanted kid. And I'm leaving it at the gym.
If all goes according to plan, I will be starting on my pump on Wednesday. That's…Continue
Well we made it through our first Halloween with diabetes. My husband and I were concerned that Olivia would want to eat any candy that she came in contact with, but she was really good at understanding that she couldn't have a piece of candy until mommy and daddy said it was okay to do so. Don't worry, we made it a point not to let our girls go overboard with getting candy. Every year we go to my in laws and we walk the block around their house and we end up going to about a dozen houses.…Continue
I am so glad I found this site. I am 38 and have been diabetic 21 years and my 8 year old daughter was diagnosed 4 years ago. I was on the pump during my pregnancy, but hated it! I am seriously considering getting back on one to help better control my blood sugars, but most of all to show my daughter how much easier it is. I am a single parent, so ANY advice on being a parent with diabetes, as well as a parent of a child with diabetes would be very much appreciated. I look forward to hearing…Continue

I've just finished with day three of NaNoWriMo. Today's writing proved to be harder than the last 2 days. I thought after having diabetes I would have 50,000 words to write about it...after today I'm not so sure...things are starting to get muddled in my head and digging up all that I buried is proving to be a painful experience, hence why it was buried in the first place...

I was watching Inside the Actor's Studio w/ Halle Berry the other day. I should probably say up front that the woman has irked me for quite some time and for no apparent reason. That being divulged, I was really confused by the segment on her diabetes. Here's how it went (paraphrasing):
James Lipton: And what kind [of diabetes] do you have?
Halle Berry: Well, it's classified as Type 1, but since I control it now with only diet and exercise, I like to say I'm Type…Continue

Tonight, I experienced that "hunger-feeling" and brings me on panic attack (i was thinking about different things... I might have this and…Continue
