Snickers

I like a good joke. I can even take a good joke about myself. And I know that I've laughed at inappropriate jokes. I know most of us have. But we need to talk about what's at the root of some types of our humor.

Even comedians have started to admit that there are realms of humor that should be handled differently. Not off limits, per se, but with the subject of the punchline in mind. Patton Oswalt wrote last summer about his complete 180° in understanding why he was…

How can we change the rising costs of diabetes care?

Tonight Manny shared with me a note about a report that estimated the possible costs of diabetes care in 2025. And the numbers are scary. Have a look at my animation of how the incidence of diabetes changes from 2010 to 2015 to 2025, these are based on image from the report website. Watch it through a few times and notice how some how some of the states in 2025 are a dark red (lots of diabetes estimated) that doesn't even appear in last year's map. Those represent states where close to 20%…

Annoyed, people trying to rename diabetes

So there's a group on facebook who are trying to get type 1 diabetes renamed, i've heard this many times, and yes it does annoy me, although i understand these people have a right to their opinion. What really frustrates me is that these people are causing problems between the ranks and making those with type 2 to feel like utter crap! I've tried expressing my views and sticking up for type 2's and all ive had in response is being blocked from the group and made out to be a nasty person and…

What is support?

As with everything, it is different for everyone. But for me it is NOT being told how wrong, stupid, lazy, non-compiant...etc etc. I am (or someone telling someone else that)



So why do I feel I need to say anything? maybe because I am not feeling well and cranky/.overly-sensitive..but anyway...



In tripping my way through all my favorite sites this morning, I noticed a slew of scathing (nicest thing I can say) replies to people who have gone to one site or another for… Continue

What Do You Think About Alert Dogs Used For Diabetes?

I was inspired to write this blog because I miss my golden Molly, who is in my profile pix, and because I saw the pretty Golden on a google news alert and I was moved. Canines are amazing little beasties!



Super Sniffers!



Dogs have always been a big part of my life! My entire life I have been exposed to the love and protection that they offer to a companion they… Continue

Cast Your Vote for A Social Media Makeover

I found this while twittering the other day and thought about all the orgs that I look at who need help with the media presence. I have plenty of philanthropic places to choose from, but decided to look within my own disease at who makes a difference and could use a facelift.



Sports has been such a big part of my life, and with age just being active is a lifeline to health. So I nominated DESA, Diabetes Sports and Exercise Foundation for the chance to win $25K for a social media… Continue

Learning From Each Other, Finding Common Ground



Transcription of the audio from the video

In recent times, emotions in our community have been stirred up. Very strong expressions from "across the aisle" that appears to divide type 1 and type 2 diabetes have come up.



It is a fact: type 1 and type 2 are different conditions and there are even more types of diabetes. All have their things that make them unique and more challenging for some people and perhaps not as challenging for others. There… Continue

Podcast: Understanding Beta Cell Exhaustion in Type 2 Diabetes

We just posted a phenomenon audio and transcript of our interview with Dr. Michael Weiss.
