Today was a big day, it as the diabetes walk, my blogaversary, and my 100th post. I have to say though the best part of my day was the diabetes walk check out the event! http://irunonbatteries.blogspot.com/2013/05/happy-blogaversary.html
Sorry Im so late with this but I finally got our story done.
My daughter Melanie was diagnosed in 2006 at the age of 18 months. I would say over a month or two starting in either November or December 2006 she was getting symptoms such as drinking (it never seemed to be enough no matter how much she drank but it was maybe a little more than usual). If you have kids you know they love to drink and constantly ask for drinks so it was hard to go by this.…
I had a great week, and felt completely encouraged based off of one conversation with this lady! http://irunonbatteries.blogspot.com/2013/05/she-made-my-week.html

My thoughts are this...
It seems to me that it would serve all of us better, if our diabetes was referred to as either
"Insulin Dependent", or "Non-insulin Dependent"
Insulin dependent diabetics would have a medical ID that states their need for insulin, instead of saying T1 or T2. Therefore, those who need…Continue

Today's the day...Super Bowl Sunday. Where people in America eat tons of junk food and watch commercials. Oh and there's a football game too. But today, in Colorado Springs, also marks an annual event where 100's of athletes flock to downtown in hopes of winning their own game...The game of running.
This year, I participated in a Super Bowl 5K with a few friends. I was also introduced to another Type 1 diabetic. Standing around waiting for the start gun, we were talking about pumps. I…Continue

On this past weekend I was not active in the normal sense that I would be active during work within the week. At work I work 8 hours and lift boxes all day working with the body for 8 hours in physical exercise which can be quite strenuous at times. At this time I do not need much insulin at all to counterbalance the sugar produced from the digestion of the food that I consume during break, but this changes quite dramatically as I am on my days off.
This weekend I needed quite a lot…Continue

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not see that there will be a diabetic epidemic arising in the world due to the amount of sugar that we consume within the products that we buy and our sedentary lifestyle, causing the pancreas to become overworked and having the hormone of insulin become…Continue
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that when I go low (hypoglycemic) the body is lacking in a nutrient that it needs to stay stable and operational and that within this all focus within the body is going to keeping alive, working to get sugar from something within the body, in this going into survival mode wherein anything that is not of immediately priority to the body such as any information at that point is going to be disregarded - hence the lack of…Continue
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that there is an overload of sugar that is being added to our food for us to `enjoy`, but the starting point has not been enjoyment, the starting point of adding all this sugar has been for profit without the consideration of the human physical body and the nutrients that it needs, and in this I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize the correlation between the amount of sugar within our…Continue

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define diabetes as being weak and define myself as being weak wherein I want to hide the disease from all other people so that they do not find out that I am weak and then `pounce` on the subject and me; constantly living in fear…Continue
