How To Help Someone When Low Blood Sugar Strikes

By | 2017-08-01T02:59:48+00:00 October 30th, 2016|Assisting Someone with Diabetes|

This month, I competed in the Pink Ladies Game Day Challenge with three of my sorority sisters for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We had a BLAST! We played tug-o-war, changed a car tire, relay raced, paddle boarded, and more. It was a team challenge competition and although we didn't win best costume, it wasn't because we didn't try. We were [...]

Diabetes Epidemic as a Zombie Apocalypse

By | 2017-08-01T03:01:43+00:00 October 9th, 2016|Online Diabetes Advocacy|

Recently in the diabetes online community, people were responding to this: I didn't reply immediately because I wanted to do something more than write a note in the comment section. It's not easy living with T2 and this type of propaganda is harmful. I would like to thank everyone who stood up and supported the T2 community. The organization has [...]

Support My 100lbs Weight Loss

By | 2017-08-01T03:06:22+00:00 August 6th, 2016|Type 2 Diabetes and Weight Loss / Exercise|

I can't believe I am even writing "Support my 100lbs weight loss" because when I started my journey, I never imagined this could be possible. I am 15lbs away from losing 100lbs in 10 years. In 2006, I went to Paris for the first time. I wanted to buy some jeans that had enough leg room in them for walking. [...]

By | 2017-08-01T03:08:37+00:00 August 5th, 2016|Diabetic Services, Newly Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, Online Diabetes Advocacy|

Recently, I was asked to write a brief opinion piece about an experience I had as a patient. As I began writing, I realized that I have so many stories because living with a chronic illness means constantly going to the doctor. Since I could only pick one story for the magazine, I decided to post a few stories on [...]

Loving the BLUETOOTH connection!

By | 2017-08-01T03:09:39+00:00 June 24th, 2016|Diabetes Product Reviews|

There is something very magical about having the ability to sync your glucose readings automatically. It makes your life a million times better. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to see my endocrinologist and had some readings in a traditional logbook and some readings on an app on my phone, but the majority of the readings were [...]

Never Forget: Diabetes is Bigger than You

By | 2017-08-01T03:11:30+00:00 March 16th, 2016|Offline Diabetes Advocacy|

It's always a unique experience when you travel to a diabetes walk. Why? Because you get a real sense of just how global the epidemic is. Sometimes we can get caught up in our little sections of the diabetes cause and remain focused on "our" issues be it race, age, type, nationality, or some other "otherness" category and forget that [...]

By | 2017-07-26T09:25:06+00:00 February 26th, 2016|Newly Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Food|

By | 2017-08-01T03:16:23+00:00 February 2nd, 2016|Pregnancy, Type 2 Diabetes and Motherhood, Type 2 Diabetes and Weight Loss / Exercise|

Recently, I was asked "So, how long did it take you to lose your pregnancy weight?" I didn't think about it until then, but I actually lost my pregnancy weight at birth. I gained only 17lbs and my daughter was 7lbs. If you add the water weight, the extra blood in the body, and the after birth, I shed that [...]
