Jessica Lyerly

Hi! My name is Jessica Lyerly and I am from Montgomery, Alabama. I am 23 years old, and I have had diabetes for 14 years now. When I was first diagnosed I had the “why me” attitude, but as weird as this is to say…I would not change having diabetes. Now let me explain!

Having diabetes has allowed me so…

Corey Smith

Well, my name is Corey Smith and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in June of 1999 when I was 7 years old. I vividly remember thinking “I wonder if I will have to go to school..” shortly after the doctor told my family and I the news. Fast forward to 2014 and I’m now 22, but still a type 1 diabetic. I…

The worst kind of Diabetes?

 

The worst kind of Diabetes?

 

Yesterday at the doctor’s office while I was waiting, a couple was engaged in what I thought to be a very odd discussion. The gentleman a man in his 70’s had recently been diagnosed with diabetes. The couple was discussing his diet, and debating one thing or another, including what to purchase at the…

Casey Card

“My name is Casey Card. I am 26 years old. April 8, 2014 will be the 13th anniversary of my diagnosis with type 1 diabetes.

When the words “You have diabetes” fell from my doctor’s lips, I had no idea what that meant. There is no way to prepare for the injections, the testing, eating when I don’t…

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…

The Lie

“Everyone here is a big liar.” The woman put her hand on my arm and looked into my eyes.

It wasn’t what I expected after my talk on finding the funny in diabetes management.

“You just lied,” she insisted. “You said diabetes can’t stop you, but it can. If my son had been here, he would’ve gotten up and walked out.”

I don’t remember saying that (it’s not part of my talks) but this woman had clearly heard something that stuck with her.

“Okay,” I said. “Tell me your…

Seriously.

It was such smooth sailing when I switched over to the new Omnipod a little over a month ago! What on earth was everyone complaining about? It is so small and cute! Well... today I got handed not one but TWO experiences with the whole pod failure thing. Actually had to take the afternoon off due to my own negligence (no extra supplies, FAIL). BUT - my experience with the Insulet Corp customer service was fast, easy, and pleasant. 2 new pods on their way to me in the next couple…

Alzheimer's & Diabetes: Can't Forget

This morning, The Kid donned her furry Halloween costume and, with the promise of candy, traipsed behind a kind lady to a room filled with older ladies and gentlemen. We were part of a toddler parade at the local Memory Care & Alzheimer’s facility and I watched as the faces of these individuals lit up when small…

Health Ills That Can Come With Years of Diabetes

November is Diabetes Month. This month you'll hear more about diabetes symptoms and risk factors than you will all year.

But there's something you won't hear about. The health challenges those of us who've lived with diabetes for decades may face. There's little research on it; not so long ago people died before they could live that long with diabetes.

But for those of us who will have lived much of our lives with diabetes -- those who got, and will yet get, Type 1 diabetes as…

3 Months of Diabetes - No Insulin?

Three months ago I ended up in the emergency room with a diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. You may have read my post back at the end of June. If not, go back and read it if you want to know where this all started. I spent my first month on a wild roller coaster ride of hyper and hypoglycemia, emotional and mental crashes.

I was prescribed a total of 40 units of insulin (including two different types I was mixing and taking twice a day). One roller coaster went like this: I check my blood…

Day One of my Diabetes Challenge

Do You Blame Your Diabetes?

When I get sick my first instinct is to grab my blood checker. Do you blame your diabetes when you feel under the weather? http://irunonbatteries.blogspot.com/2013/07/is-diabetes-always-to-blame.html
