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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Diabetes Blues

By | 2017-07-27T03:20:54+00:00 September 10th, 2014|Type 2 Diabetes and Faith|

I came into 2014 with the diabetes blues. It gets us all at some point. I've worked so very hard to get myself on a routine, to keep my glucose levels low, but nothing I was doing was working any more. While others had warned me about Diabetes Burn Out, I hadn't expected it to last so long. But it [...]
