A new post on my blog about why logging using a computer still isn't much better than using paper, and what I wish diabetes software REALLY let me do with the information I feed it.

New blog post: Different, Deficient, Disabled.
Again, not related to diabetes, but I do have some diabetes ones coming up! I just write what I'm inspired by at the time, and diabetes has been low-key lately (*knock wood*).

It's not often I completely forget to bolus, but I did for dinner today.
Actually, I did try, but my pump was too low on insulin to let me do it. I figured I'd eat dinner and do it later (never a good thing to do!).
By the time I was done dinner, I'd totally forgotten about it, and was super tired so went to lie down for a few minutes.
Well, a few minutes ended up being two hours! So I tested about three hours after dinner at 22.5 (405 mg/dl). Ugh!
A new post over at my blog about my thoughts and experiences regarding disclosure and job interviews:
I posted my first "real" post on my blog. It's not about diabetes, but some might find it interesting anyway!
Note: This post is about braille and one aspect of the braille literacy issue (some would say "crisis") which currently exists. I think virtually the…Continue
I thought I would share with everyone that I have taken the plunge and started a diabetes blog!
Its focus is actually living as someone with T1 diabetes and a visual impairment. It's called Blood Drops & Braille Dots.
Feel free to check it out and follow (or whatever the equivalent blog term is!). I have a few future posts started, but if you have any topics you would like me to blog about, I am open to any ideas or…Continue
I am having a serious "I hate diabetes" day.
For the past week or so my control has just been horrible. I'm taking more insulin than I did before (using a 1:4 breakfast ratio!) and often STILL going high. Yet up until a week ago, things were great.
I am really beginning to think my problem is hormones. I will have a week or two where control seems almost "easy"—the rules work (mostly), as long as I don't mess up I have relatively good numbers, I can go days staying between…Continue
Well, I guess this type of thing is why I keep some Lantus around.
I was supposed to pick up pump cartridges today and completely forgot. So I went to refill my pump tonight and ... yep, no cartridges.
I don't have enough insulin left in my pump to get me through the night. So my choices are to either do tiny shots of Humalog (I use Apidra in my pump but don't have any pens) throughout the night or to take some Lantus.
I think I'm going to do the latter because I really…Continue
Curious, is anyone in the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area planning on going to the Friends for Life Canada conference in August? It would be GREAT to have a sort of adult meet-up at the conference, if anyone is interested?!
I went in 2010 and went to workshops that were about controlling Type 1 (rather than about KIDS with Type 1) and found it very interesting and useful. The…Continue
