One of my biggest fears is that even though we try to prepare for everything there will be a time when I am not with Nikki and she will have a low blood sugar. If that's not bad enough a low blood sugar without a fast acting sugar can really go bad. Here's what Nikki did

I’ve been quite active lately going to open mic nights to tell some jokes and develop a standup routine. It’s stressful trying to balance this with a full time job, marriage and a household. I am getting better at compartmentalizing my tasks and thoughts and making lists, lots of lists. Diabetes and stress do not bode well together. Sugars go up in my case because I tend to eat more when I’m stressed. Ironically “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts.”
Before going out at night I…Continue
As I read over my last post back in mid-November...I was happy to have no BP issues or protein in the urine...blah blah blah. Well, the sh*t hit the fan, starting on my birthday (the 27th) of all days! I was 33w5d...

I feel like such a pig tonight! I just finished eating an ENTIRE King Size Kit Kat! Yes, the one that has like 8 very satisfying crunchy breaks. The yummy chocolaty goodness poured over the perfectly crisp wafers is hard to resist when my BS is good. But when it is low.... oh man, can't fight it. (Ha Ha)I am 21 and have been diabetic for 13 years. I have yet to find a good way to curb the cravings from being low. Has anybody out there found a good way to stop yourself before eating way too…Continue
Hi there-- Does anyone else feel as though only other diabetics understand how awful and different you feel when you have a high blood sugar? I become much more irritable, sensitive, etc. Sometimes I feel as though people think I am making excuses for myself, but I am normally a very happy-go-lucky woman. It's so frustrating.

We are almost finished our basic training(obedience) and she has been living with me full time for over a month now.
I will be starting her scent training in the next week or two.
So the other night, her and I and the cat were snuggling on the couch watching TV. All of the sudden, she started pawing at me,first with one paw, then when I pushed her away she went all out with both paws. I thought ok, maybe she must have to go to the bathroom so I got up and thats when it hit me... low…

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 went down to Oklahoma City for the Road Race State Championship this weekend.
On race day, I woke up with a BG of 64. I ate a bowl of raisin bran and got my gear ready to go. After I got checked in at the race course, my BG was 183. I set my basal back only a little (-25%) since it was a morning race and I knew I would be more insulin resistant throughout the race (typically riding at that intensity I might set my basal to -50 or -60%). Went for a warm-up ride for a few miles to…Continue

This week we celebrated the lovely Riley turning one! Let me just tell you, this little girl is fantastic! She has the most amazing personality and I cannot even believe she is one.

Ah, the explanation points are becoming too much, but I can’t help it I love these people they are amazing and I am so thankful to have them in my life.
Ok, you must be thinking, what does…Continue

Management by Objectives is a business concept made popular by Peter Drucker of Claremont Graduate University. It’s a fairly simple concept, but extremely important: if you don’t consistently measure the results of an activity or process, the activity or process will get out of hand and lead to poor results. Companies or businesses who create metrics for measuring such activities will find themselves more naturally improving those activities or processes and thus improving their…Continue

In the spirit of the summer Olympics, my blood sugars have decided to participate in their own sport event called “Leaps and Bounds.” So what’s going on? The Dexcom rings low (under 55), I test and the reading is 72. The Dexcom buzzes high (over 240), I test and the reading is 180. This makes no sense causing me to test my blood glucose 8 times each day, Wednesday and Thursday. I call this, “Chasing my Blood Sugars.”

Hey Guys, here is a post on being high in the mornings...I have found difficulty in managing the sugars in the morning, but I realize that I have not done all that I can do to investigate any possible solutions to this point because, as we know, it can be really bothersome to wake up with high blood sugars…Continue
