First off HELLO TuD friends. I haven't been on here since August 2009!! I feel terrible. How is everyone doing?
Okay so I am approaching the age of legal drinking. I can be honest I have drank before but I never did it responsibly. I would ignore what my sugar levels were doing and just did what I wanted. Well for the past year now I have been keeping my levels great and I haven't allowed myself to slip up at all. And since… Continue

so about two weeks ago i went into DKA. I was admitted into the hospital on thursday and well it sucked. i honestly don't remember much about the first 24 hours. I remember my boyfriend carrying me to the car and then putting me in a wheel chair and taking me into the ER. Then i remember waking up in a white room with a bright light on above my bed. I guess i passed out at some point. The doctor came in and told me that my blood sugar was at 902 and that i was damn near coma and that my body… Continue

Growing up in a military family i always told myself i would be joining my family in serving my country.
I dreamed from the time i was in diapers of seeing my name stiched onto a TRUE camo uniform fit for me. I always wanted to be a soldier.
At 13 when i was diagnosed with T1 i never thought it would impact my furture as much as it did.
When i was 17 i started my enlistment papers. I had talked with my parents about my recruitment and they were willing and ready to help me do… Continue

if not its a must see for any diabetic.
it shows how even the healthiest looking person can loose control and eventually let diabetes control them.

and i will repeat this once more
Steel Magnolias is a MUST SEE movie for any diabetic and exspecially one who is struggling with diabetes. it will show you how precious your life… Continue

I was diagnosed with T1 diabetes at the age of 13, its been 5 years and about 7 months.
For the first 3 years I had perfect A1C levels. They ran around 4.5-5s. But then I started losing control. My levels started to elevate and kept going up no matter what. This past year they have reached 13+. Recently I have started to control my diabetes instead of letting it control me. Today I had a check and my level was 10.1. I know thats a really bad level but it actually dropped 1.4 points… Continue
