2nd Blog Anniversary!!

Posted on

Today marks the second anniversary of my blog! This has been one of the smartest things I have ever done. Writing this blog has had such an impact on my life in just two short years. I’ve written over 200 posts (this is my 217th to be exact), received almost 30,000 views and had people take the time to comment on my posts over 800 times.


Diabetes-“I’m a P.C.”

Posted on

Back in 2006, Apple started the “I’m a Mac” campaign with Justin Long.  These ads continued into 2009.  Sometimes I think my diabetes care is stuck back in 2009 because my insulin pump hasn’t changed much in the 17 years I’ve been pumping (I know there are great advances over the last few years like […]

What a difference a year makes in CGM graphs

Posted on

(Click graphs to zoom in). These are two CGM graphs from CareLink (Minimed). The first graph is from 2012, the second graph is from 2013 (last two weeks of September).  As you can see, in 2012 I rarely was “in range”.  In 2013, majority of my numbers were in range.  It’s crazy to see how […]


First Diabetic Meet-up

Posted on

Yesterday, I had my first “meet-up” with fellow Type 1 diabetics in the Richmond area.  As I said on Friday, a girl (Emily) from Insulindependence contacted me and another girl in the Richmond area to get together.  She has just moved to Virginia from the NY area where she was pretty involved with their chapter.
