Dry Skin, Diabetes, and TriDerma’s “Foot Revival” Cream

By | 2017-08-01T03:17:37+00:00 December 1st, 2015|Diabetes Product Reviews, Newly Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes|

I have always had dry skin, that's just my skin type. Some have oily, others have combination, I have dry. However, I never thought about how my skin might be drier because of diabetes, I simply thought it could be the harsher water or age or me not drinking enough water. But, after trying some of TriDerma products, I realize [...]

My Not-So Pinterest Pregnancy Announcement

By | 2017-08-01T03:21:26+00:00 November 13th, 2015|Pregnancy, Type 2 Diabetes and Motherhood|

Almost naturally, I found myself on Pinterest searching for "Pregnancy announcements" because I wanted my announcement to be "P.E.R.F.E.C.T." when I told my husband. I thought about telling him over dinner where instead of dessert on the tray, it would be the pregnancy news. Or perhaps a puzzle or scavenger hunt. While, I wasn't sure which one it would be, [...]

Deciding on Motherhood while Living with Type 2

By | 2017-07-27T03:11:36+00:00 October 13th, 2015|Pregnancy, Type 2 Diabetes and Motherhood|

I am not the type of woman that felt my life would be incomplete without experiencing motherhood. For most of my life, I would even say, "I don't want children." I didn't get a "tingling" feeling when passing the baby section in stores and "Baby Fever" was never something I caught. It was a distant thought but nothing that lingered [...]

DBlog Week Day 4–Changes

By | 2017-08-01T03:23:11+00:00 May 14th, 2015|Diabetes Blog Week Posts, Online Diabetes Advocacy|

Today's topic: What I would most like to see change about diabetes. That's an easy one for me. I would like for diabetes management to be more affordable. I was diagnosed while living in the United States and over the past four years I have had the privilege to benefit from access to diabetes care in two other countries and [...]

DBlog Week Day 2–What I Keep to Myself

By | 2017-07-26T10:30:35+00:00 May 12th, 2015|Diabetes Blog Week Posts, Online Diabetes Advocacy|

Today's topic is very interesting because if I tell you what I don't tell you, then I'm telling you. LOL However, in my most recent interview by Health Central that went live a few weeks ago (see it here) the thing that I've been keeping to myself is now public. Pregnancy and Diabetes. I read, with MUCH appreciation, Kim's and [...]

DBlog Week Day 1–I Can

By | 2017-07-26T10:31:04+00:00 May 11th, 2015|Diabetes Blog Week Posts, Online Diabetes Advocacy|

So, today is the kick off of the 6th annual DBlog Week and today's topic is "I CAN..." When I think of the I CAN theme, I think about my ability to integrate diabetes management into my life rather than have diabetes management take over my life. It's been 4 years since I was diagnosed and for the first year [...]

Four Years and Still Counting…

By | 2017-08-01T03:24:08+00:00 February 15th, 2015|Diabetes Anniversaries|

Today marks four years since I was diagnosed with diabetes. I'm still here, still counting and living my life diagnosed not defeated. Each of my diaversaries are special. When I reflect on where I am now, I know that I am just where I need to be, even though I am not where I want to be in every aspect [...]

There is No Cure and God is Still God

By | 2017-07-27T03:11:45+00:00 December 2nd, 2014|Type 2 Diabetes and Faith|

There is no cure for diabetes... and yet, God is STILL God. I live with a bodily dysfunction for which there is no cure. There is no cure. There is no cure. I live with a broken pancreas and prayer hasn't fixed it. I accept it. I accept it. I accept it just as I accept the crucifixion. Just as [...]
