I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear having diabetes, fear the struggle that it may bring me in walking this life and in this system - fear being susceptible to the highs and lows of blood sugar levels, fear having to deal with the constant that is me being a diabetic,…Continue

Over the past few months I have heard a lot of anxiety and stress when it comes to testing your child with diabetes' blood glucose at night. Its a topic that can divide the diabetes community and raise blood pressure faster than the mention of Halle Berry or pumping versus multiple daily injections. It can create strife among friends and cause a serious strain on marital relationships.
I am a night tester. I have been for the past twelve plus years. I will continue to do it for as…Continue

“It was a normal first date of getting to know each other, but since type 1 diabetes is such a big part of me, it began a ‘Diabetes 101’ for her,” said Chris Stocker.

With a new school year and a new teacher comes the ever popular "back to school" essay. My youngest son never ceases to frustrate me when it comes to such things. Two classes and four days later, his essay on introducing himself consisted of four sentences--his name, his age and where he had lived in his life. Getting more out of him was going to be torture...and it was! Thankfully, after hearing that he could write pages on the importance of the advent of a toaster to heat his Eggo's each…Continue

I have said before and I will say it again, I was pleasantly surprised by Leighann Calentine's new book Kids First Diabetes Second. I had seriously wondered how someone relatively new to diabetes would handle an entire book...okay Leighann is not a newbie but sadly we have been on this block a few more years and as I have said, I have become crass over the years. As I said previously, she handled it fabulously! Again, I think this should definitely be given to all newly diagnosed, anyone…Continue

At the beginning of the year I posted about people living with diabetes and depression and/or burnout. As parents, we ache for our children going through this each day and do our best to relieve some of their burden. Many parents go through a depression or period of mourning at diagnosis but I wonder how many feel that they may have developed depression in part because of diabetes moving into their homes?
When my son was diagnosed, it took me months before I sat and cried. Initially I…Continue

This was originally posted on my personal blog on Tuesday, December 20, 2011, which was the first night of Chanukah.
Getting back to my blog. It has been such a long time away from my nice, sweet, niche in this corner of cyberspace. My health robbed me from fully participating in Diabetes Awareness Month, and so that is why now, at the start of the holiday season, with tonight being the first Chanukah light, I will finally be able to post about my giveaway! This giveaway is going to…Continue

Last night I had the pleasure of watching the talented Mr. Tyler Perry latest movie and I must tell you while I am big fan of his work I always tend to shy away from sequels especially from the movie makers I
believe are truly gifted.
To me sequels are always motivated by money rather than talent, not the loss of it necessarily but more like writes block at a certain point in their
But before we see a Sixth Sense 2 or a Do the Right Thing…

Having seen the despatches programme where lobbyists can ask for 3 to 5 thousand ponds a day it got me thinking how come I get £107 pounds a week on incapacity benefit, I would glady give that up for a job when I was working I was paid £250 a week I am not griping about my state money without it I would be walking the streets and I am very grateful for all the medication I get free being diabetic and a heart failure patient but having a job would be the icing on the…Continue
