INSTAGRAM CHALLENGE Day 15: Supplies in Drawer/Closet
I order up to five months of insulin pump supplies at one time. This cupboard contains my infusion sets and insulin cartridges. It does not include my lancets, glucose tabs, test strips, insulin and various other meds. #projectbluenovember #insulinisnotacure #lifeofadiabetic #pumpsupplies #animasping
Lunch break today consisted of running home to attach my dexcom since I see my endo tomorrow. Back to work I go! #lifeofadiabetic #dexcom #cgm #a1c

After having a Diabetes pump for so many years I have found that door handles and door knobs have become some of my biggest enemies. #lifeofadiabetic

I fell apart and now I'm picking up the pieces. I wish I could say I took this today but it was months ago. Damaged in so many places.. So much can go wrong and I've been careless. It's been more than diabetes burnout, it's been a complete life burnout. So much to do, so much to get done. Not enough hours in a day or days in a week. Burned out, doing so much and neglecting so much more. But here I am trying to get things back in order. 
I made so many appointments today. Haven't seen my Endo since September. But now I'm finally on my way to getting my new pump along with a cgm. I've been holding out on getting a cgm til I got a new pump and I've been holding out on the pump hoping the 640g would be in the States soon... But I can't  wait any longer and I won't use the new tech out of my reach as an excuse any more. I'm getting back on track and I'm starting today. #insulinaddict #lifeofadiabetic #Medtronic #insulinpump

#Chromium #Picolinate helps support healthy blood sugar levels. ❀️⠀
Chromium is an essential trace mineral that potentiates insulin action and thus influences carbohydrate, protein, 
and fat metabolism. The biologically active form of chromium, sometimes called glucose tolerance factor (GTF), occurs naturally in brewer’s yeast. GTF has been 
proposed to be a complex of chromium, nicotinic acid (vitamin B-3), and possibly the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamic acid. Although many attempts have been made to isolate or synthesize natural GTF, none have been entirely successful. Adequate chromium nutrition is 
essential for the formation of GTF and subsequent control of blood glucose levels.

Naturally I'm a sweet man, Doctor. Hence the monthly blood test will always be sweet. πŸ˜‚ | The Doctor smirk while the Nurse cheekily smile in agreement with me (Well at least from my point of view). | Blessed Friday and counting the many blessings, both in sickness and in health. | #bloodtest #lifeofadiabetic #needles #syringe #blood #begentlenurse #mextures #mexturesapp
Today's little gym session working on my running, all was going well till my sugar levels dropped mid work out to 4.1 even though I had been drinking lucazade whilst running.... One energy gel later and I was back on it. πŸ‘£
I just get so frustrated that I can't get to how I was last year before diabetes got in the way...

Yesterday was appointment day with my consultant at the hospital day, he summed the numbers up by saying 'You look at the blades of grass and I look at the lawn' anyway the numbers are all good however my next step is to really monitor my readings while excercising so we can understand why I feel so Ill after taking part in races and also see if there is anything that's causing me not to reach my running goals as despite putting in the training. #diabeticlife #diabeticjourney #diabetes #type1diabetesawareness #type1diabetic #diabeticjourney #myjourney #mystory #diabetesofinstagrame #diabeticlife #diabeticlifestyle #diabetesandme #keeponrunning #bestfootfoward #progression #freestyle #freestylelibre #scanyourself #scanner #insulin #insulinjunkie #insulindependent #diabeticworld #lifeofadiabetic #lifebeyondtype1 #type1runner #motivation #determination #roomforimprovement #runningwithtype1

#onthisday 18 years ago, I started this diabetic journey (not my choice). Being a type 1 diabetic is a full time gig, and has impacted most of my major life decisions. So indulge me this year, friends. Please learn the symptoms of diabetes, listen to your body, and when the nurse goes to prick your finger, don’t let them do it anywhere but on the side where you have fewer nerve endings (trust me, I do this 6-10 times a day). #PSA #diabetes #type1 #type1diabetes #bloodsugar #lifeofadiabetic #doesnthurt

Soooo I’m not giving medical advice, just sharing my experiences.  I suffer from migraines and daily headaches, which some migraine sufferers can get daily headaches from it. I recently found several posts and videos of people who suffer from migraines and got the Daith piercing and it relieving their symptoms. I thought β€œHey, why not give it a try! Anything would be better than popping 5 Advil twice a day! And if it doesn’t work, I’ll be left with two pretty cool piercings!” I got the piercings on Oct 29th, 2017 and after two weeks of several headaches EVERY. DAY., I’ve only had three headaches since getting pierced! (One of them was sinus related and as soon as I took musinex it was gone, so it doesn’t count! Haha) I would typically have 2-3 migraines a month, so for me, it has been a tremendous help with amazing results! Also, at least for me, the pain when getting pierced was next to nothing, and you must understand, other than tattoos, I’m a SERIOUS wimp for pain! I had no bleeding at the time of piercing so my piercer did tell me I could have blood on my pillow the next day and I did; two small drops of blood only. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! #lifeofadiabetic #medtronicdiabetes #humaloginsulin #novolog #630G #Type1Diabetes #Diabetes #Diabetic #Diabadass #InsulinDependent #DiabetesAwareness #T1DLooksLikeMe #CGM #GuardianLink #ContourNextLink #migraines #headaches

Yesterday I did my first 10 mile trail run. Im not going to lie I found it really hard going however when I reached the 4.75 mile mark I decided I was going to run with an elderly gentleman as he was going a similar pace to myself. 
He was truly inspirational as I learnt that he had found out he had bladder cancer this year,  he had had it removed and was now having chemotherapy (his last one was wednesday of this week) 
To run with somebody who also had a medical condition and understood that its not as easy as it looks when your body is dealing with issues was real support and we finished the race together in a respectable 2 hours 4 mins.

I'm 25 today, and of course had to see my birthday in with a hypo and carton of apple juice at midnight last night!

The quest to get an answer from Abbott continues…. I don't think anyone in the customer service department has a clue about how to do their job. After a frustrating phone call today I then had Abbott phone me back to tell me what I had originally told them 😑
Tonight I have had to use my last sensor which I have been saving as I have been waiting for my order that has gone missing as I have a 10 mile trail run on Saturday and I can run without being able to monitor my glucose levels.  And after experiencing a hypo at the gym earlier this week I don't fancy experiencing one in the middle of nowhere… 
Im one very unhappy diabetic at the moment πŸ˜₯

I’ve never been more grateful to have an infusion site fall off a day early. As I was trying to get comfortable and into pajamas... my site just fell off my arm πŸ˜‘ I shrugged it off and grabbed my supplies for a new site. As I go to grab insulin I notice my container is empty (where I keep my open/room temp insulin). Once again I shrug it off and walk to the fridge to not see a single box of insulin inside. Heart rate elevates immediately as I go into full on panic mode. My husband sees me and asks what’s wrong. I tell him as calmly as I can that I only have the insulin in my pump. It makes me realize I have about 1 days worth of insulin. Then comes the light bulb moment. I remember that my last refill was at the nearby pharmacy (I typically do mail order). So I call to see if I have any refills left. Luckily, I did and was able to get it before the pharmacy closed.
