By: Diabetic_Iz_Me

I was diagnosed with Type 1.5/LADA in June of 2004.  The first 3 years of my diabetic life I was on glipizide and metformin.  I switched to insulin in January 2008.  I decided to switch from MDI's (mutiple daily injections) to the Omnipod insulin delievery system.  In May 2008, I started pumping insulin and blogging about diabetes.  I am a featured blogger at DiabetesDaily.com.  I am also very active in the Diabetes Online Community.

  • Karen (Bitter-Sweet Diabetes Blog) is the brains behind "Diabetes Blog" week.  I am trying to play catch up because life sometimes grabs me by the pancreas, turns my world upside down and then I lose my thought process.  So, here is the subject for Day 6 of diabetes blog week: 

    Inspired by the Diabetes 365 project, lets snap a few d-related pictures to share today. Post as many or as few as you'd like. Be creative! Please feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures. Our leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.

  • I have missed you all! I had a very busy past month. My Husband came home from Iraq last month. I celebrated my 29th birthday in Las Vegas. Besides all of the things I mentioned I still have diabetes and it took me on a nice ride. I experienced a lot of lows. I made a lot few basal changes. I experienced a few highs because I under bolused for a few sweet treats--after all, a girls gotta have her sweets diabetes or not.  My Husband and I are moving to Indianapolis in March. I have applied for a few jobs; I haven't found anything yet. So, that's what I've been up to. Enough about me. What's been going on in your life? How's diabetes been treating you?

  • I have to admit.  I use twitter ALOT! I mainly tweet to communicate with other PWD's (People with Diabetes) and to see what's going on around the world.  I can usually find out what's going around the world a lot faster than reading a newpaper or logging on to the internet.  There are 100's of PWD's on twitter who experience the same things you do.  I wanted to share a few PWD's who tweet on twitter that you should follow.

    This list of people I listed above are just a few people who have helped me a lot and they are inspirational people.  I have a lot more names but it would take me all night.  I follow over 200 people who touch my life on a daily basis.  Do you tweet? If so, what's your username?

    Diabetes is like a box of Chocolates

    Today, I had a taste for chocolate. I am shocked that I actually had a taste for chocolate; I really don't like it. I walked in my Supervisors office, there was a box of chocolates sitting on her desk. I wonder if I could figure out which one had caramel in the middle. I took a bite of a few and still nothing. I finally settled on a piece a chocolate, almonds with caramel in the middle. Gross, not what I wanted but curved the craving.

    While I was walking back to my desk I thougtht about Diabetes. Diabetes reminds me alot of a box a chocolates. I try to reach for the "perfect" number but sometimes no matter how many test I do or what foods I try to avoid- I can never find the "perfect" number. Do I get upset ? Yes! I try to figure out what and why; most of the time I grunt, bolus and move on.

    After all diabetes is like a box of chocolate, You never know what glucose reading your going to get.
