I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to consider, think about, even attempt suicide when I find that my life will be limited because of the manifestation of diabetes within me, wherein I feel that the life that I am able to lead with living with diabetes is going to suck and I am not going to be able to give myself the life that I would like to lead and thus find no point in living any longer because I am not able to have that which I would like for myself - in this…Continue

A friend of mine who works as a Veterinary assistant was telling me about a cat that was diagnosed with diabetes a few days ago. Today she read the consultant report of the family who owns that cat and has shared with me that the family is deciding to euthanize the cat because they believe that it is too difficult to take care of a cat with diabetes, from what the family has heard from friends who previously had cats that had diabetes.
This has occurred in me in similar ways in…Continue

I love amazon! I always go there when I find a book I want and buy it used if I can for around a dollar. I got some books recently and they are think like a Pancreas by Gary Scheiner and College Rules by Sherrie Nist-Olejnik and Jodi Holschuh. I have really loved both books both of which I have heard from other people, and today when I finally got my College Rules I was looking at the and realized this is college prep for a diabetic.
This of course doesn't even count the countless…Continue

A few days ago I posted on my blog The Juice Box Diaries about how I’ve struggled with self-confidence when it comes to body image. Through weight gains, losses, and a bit of an unhealthy outlook towards what it means to be beautiful, I’ve spent over 10 years dreaming of the…Continue
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

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'm 26 weeks today! Baby boy is a kicking fool.
After about a month and 1/2 of wrangling my boluses and basals I FINALLY have them working for me! My averages, courtesy of the Ping meter are a doctor's dream, or at least not a nightmare.
7 Day: 122
14 Day: 128
30 Day: 135
60 Day: 146
I'm happy with these as they're pretty REAL, with hardly any highs or lows to skew the numbers. But, as everyone…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 not realize that if I am not active during the day there is going to be a lack of assistance from physical activity to support the transfer of sugar within the blood stream to the cells and therefore I am going to need more insulin…Continue
