I have been so busy, I am truly disappointed in the fact I haven't had time to put up some new videos. Videos that I know make me feel
good, and ones that I hope make you feel good as well.
IF YOU HAVE GOTTEN ANYTHING POSITIVE FROM MY VIDEOS... I think I might need some help, so why not ask GOOD people that might be willing to help.…
It has been a while since my last post. It has been a roller coaster ride and life at my household has been stressful and frustrating and at times I feel like I am about to break. Seriously, I feel like I am at the edge and it scares me. I am a teacher and like everyone knows - the summer had to come to an end and then I had to go back to work. Dealing with diabetes, I feel helpless. My daughter Olivia (two years old) is adjusting to diabetes (dx on 6-12-2007), but me on the other hand is…Continue

Hi all! (if anyone reads this). My name is Erin & I was diagnosed with Type I diabetes in May 1996 at the age of 13. I'm sure it started for me the way it did for most of the Type I's out there, but I was fortunate enough to come from a family full of Type II's that caught on early & I never ended up being hospitalized for it.
Up until September of 2005 I never took care of myself properly. I was lazy & never could seem to remember to take my injections no matter how…Continue
Now I have not yet gotten to the part where I am doing everything that I should be doing. I am halfway there. I have been eating very healthy and have gone from eating out everyday at least 2 meals a day to bringing my (healthy) lunch to work and cooking dinner. That was a major transformation for me, after all, I work full-time and commute one hour each way to work. It takes time to plan. I have to do more shopping etc. I have a husband and three boys etc. Ok, now that I have that…Continue
I'm back from my trip to the Gulf Coast. It was beautiful down there. I did get some nice pics of sunrises, sunsets and the waves and stuff. If anyone is interested, they can be seen here: http://flickr.com/photos/ladytaz .

Taking my pump to China this summer was an experience. 14 hours in the air left me dizzy and my butt semipermanently paralyzed. My “big plan” for a disaster was an extra AAA battery, a bottle of Lantus and a handful of syringes.
As far as international air travel goes – the flight was not exciting. The trip, on the other hand, was! The food was AWESOME, but exactly how…

Walk of Hope is coming up in a few short weeks. I am doing a presentation again this year entitled "The Faces of Hope".
It's just a little slide show of people with Type 1 with a info like their age, age at diagnosis, hobbies, where they live (if they chose to share). Along with that I need a picture.
I had 22 hopeful faces last year. But, this year I only have 10.
If any of you would like to help me out I'd appreciate…
