For My Personal Diabetes Awareness Month of November, I pledged to focus in on my diabetes management and really work on fine tuning in an effort to get my A1c down below that coveted 7%. And I’m so happy that when I checked my meter average the other day, this is what I saw: […]
Something about that perfect, beautiful, 100mg/dL gives me the warm fuzzies all over. It’s perfectly in range, and such a pretty, round, glorious number. Every time this pops up on a meter, I can’t help but smile and give myself a big ‘ole pat on the back. It’s the number we’re told to shoot for […]
This year, I pledged to make November not just National Diabetes Awareness Month, but MY Diabetes Awareness Month too. As I’ve struggled to get my A1c back down under 7% since the Great Noodle Fest of 2013 (a.k.a. our Southeast Asia Trip), and been hit by one distraction after another (see: Our wedding. See also: […]
Remember to bolus early and often, to count your carbs not your calories, and to be very thankful for everything you have. See you Monday for more d-bloggage!
I found this video floating around Facebook and it is too hilarious not to share. I absolutely love her way of explaining WHY these things sound ridiculous, and her little side-cuts and illustrations (“goblet full of diabetes” has to be the funniest phrase ever).

It’s kind of funny to think about Diabetes Awareness Month when you already have diabetes, right? It’s like…yeah, I’m aware of it…literally every day. But of course, the point of this month is to help folks who don’t have diabetes understand it better. And by “understand” I mean help them understand what it really means to live […]
When I decided five years ago that it was time for me to go on an insulin pump, I shopped around. But I didn’t ask my doctors about which kind the preffered, and I didn’t call my local sales reps for their opinions. Nope, I started right here on my blog and with other areas […]
I put my Omnipods through a lot. I sweat on them in the gym and out running, I do sit-ups on ‘em, toss and turn through my sleep. Most of the time, they hold up incredibly well. But ever since I got the new smaller pods, I’ve had several do this weird creep-up thing with […]
Yesterday, I rolled down to my local Walgreen’s and paid $31 to get a flu shot. It made my arm sore, and I was so tired by 8pm that night that I hit the hay not much longer after that. I don’t love getting a flu shot every year, but I do it. I used […]
Our furry little skeleton would like you to have a happy and safe Halloween! And remember to bolus early and bolus often with all that candy around.
