Diabetes Awareness?

On a good day, diabetes isn't a bad disease to have - I say this all the time. On a bad day, when I'm so crazy, infuriated and angry about the slightest, next-to-nothing, when I'm 'exploitative' hating myself for finding a normal day so difficult and I just can't get my sugar to come down; when I'm so scared my eye bleeds again and a world of opportunity threatening to be taken away from me; well then I'll seriously consider swapping you my diabetes for something else, you take your…

The Faces of Diabetes - An ongoing project

You’re probably wondering what this project is all about. Let me explain. A few years back, when I was graphic design major in college, I prepared a very personal thesis on living with diabetes. A lot of time and effort went into the production of the project. In the end, I wasn’t sure if the story I hoped to tell would be fully understood. But, much to my surprise, I received a phenomenal reception from both my peers and professionals. The project contained six images and a video depicting…

Just a thought

I just picked up my new diabetes alert bracelet. I got lucky and got a 2 for 1 special, so now my husband has one too. :) Then I got to thinking, this one is like a watch band with a two inch ID like band on the front, It opens up and has two stickers for me "This person is a diabetic, check card wallet for info" and "This person has severe allergies check wallet for info". On these cards is all the important info…

My friends are driving me nuts

.When I was diagnosed 13 years ago, I did NOTHING about it for two years. Don't ask why changed my mind, I just did. I've had several friends who have ignored their diagnosis, recently, and it drives me crazy. I have given them the name of the BEST CDE we have in the area, they have either made appts and then done nothing, or skipped out, wasting his time. I see their health even this early going down…

UPDATE ON ASHA APRIL EDITION

Although training never ever ends for a service dog, Asha is fully functional and saving my life each and every day. She alerts to both highs and lows at levels that allow me to take care of it without getting sick. 4.0mmol/L for lows and 10.0mmol/L for highs.

I always have my emergency kit with me while we are out and about, either in my purse or in her back pack. (contains my monitor, insulin and a few sources of sugar such as dex tabs, candy, glucagon shot and always a juice…

Coming to my Type 1's for Support

I apologize for bringing non diabetes conversation here, but when I was trying to figure out where I can get support this was the first place I thought of.

As many of you know, I have been alienated from my children for nearly 10 years but maintained a very close and deep relationship with them. However, 7 weeks ago this Friday their mother went to court and said that I was pressuring them and lawyered her way into getting me only supervised visitation. I have had unlimited joint…
