It was one of those weekends, one that you just don't want to be a diabetic anymore. When you don't want to test, or bolus. You don't want to count carbohydrates, or change your infusion site, or really do anything related to being a type 1 diabetic. You ignore the fact you need to test, or that you should count the carbs instead of guessing but I didn't. It was just, simply, one of 'those' weekends that diabetes won. That it was ok much and I didn't want to do it or bother with it and I simply let it fall to the side while I enjoyed my life. Today is Monday. A new week, which means I start again. I try again. And I get my lazy ass back in gear and realize I AM my pancreas. I AM on life support. And I only have one life to live, with type 1 diabetes by my side.
So I received a call today from my local JDRF chapter. Caught me completely off guard. They were just calling to see if we were okay after hurricane Irma, and if we needed any diabetic supplies. My husband was always very private about his diabetes, so I didn't branch out looking for support groups or anything of that nature. After his daughter was diagnosed at the age of 2, that all changed. We can't believe how tight the diabetic community is and we are so grateful that our daughter will get to grow up with all these resources & support! To all those Type 1's out there... keep up the fight!!!! 💪🏼👊🏼💉 #t1d#t1strong#diabetes#jdrf#diabadass#diabeauty#typ1family#t1mom#insulin#podder#dexcom#dexcomg5

Right now is a scary time for a lot of people dealing with hurricane aftermath. Dealing with diabetes is difficult enough, and no one should have to be worrying about insulin and other supplies in the midst of chaos. Head to ifl-USA.org to see what you can do to help, and head to OnTrack Diabetes for tips on getting prepared in case disaster strikes.
Not the worst morning stroll! Walking in the morning, or at any time throughout the day, can seriously help balance your blood sugar. What's your favorite morning routine to prepare you for the day? ☀️
I may send up diabetes, but i can as i live with it. This is me in hospital after nearly losing my life, but the face i am pulling is down to the fact that someone thought i had eaten too many doughnuts and thought i was a type 2 diabetic... weird thing is that i needed a doughnut as without it, i would have been sleeping like sleeping beauty and not even a hot nurse could have kissed me to bring me back round. Type 1 and 2 are different, the outcome of both if treated badly is severe and dangerous. Ignorance is indeed bliss, but getting facts wrong isn't going to amuse me when your braincells have been tampered with from being dropped on your head at childbirth. It can't be helped and nor can living with type 1. Never waste your time explaining yourself to those with minds with no room for growth. The card in question isn't a best seller? Why lie? It also offends many, and a joke done in bad taste shows how one's comedic skills are lacking. You're obviously selling cards to those who live in the undergrowth, and this shows someone who doesn't actually live in the real world. I nearly died, I'm alive and i made more sense when nearing a coma than the joke you found in a hospital lost property basket. I am going to go and have some sweets, and eat a bakery out of stock.... fuck it I've got DIABETES @woodmansternecards 😉 #diabetes#ignorance#type1and2aredifferent#diabeticshowbizshizzle#diabadass#diabeauty#insulindependent#keepcalmimonlydiabetic#insulinpump#insulindependent#type1strong#type1warrior#diabetesisnojoke
