  • Has anyone been having a hard time with the heat? For once I say thank god for work - it's the only place I'm cool. I've even looked into an air conditioner but I can't bring myself to do that. Does anyone have any good strategies for beating the heat? If I come up with any, I'll be sure to share. Until then...

  • Haven't been around in awhile - getting my butt kicked by work. I've been traveling and have had my workload almost tripled since some people left the office. Despite the erratic hours and traveling I've been able to keep pretty good control. I have been testing more though to make sure of that. I've also gotten really good at noticing the early signs of an impending problem. This comes in handy if I'm on the road at a client so I don't start to get wonky in the middle of a meeting.

    I do want to research and get a pump. I've been talking about it for awhile and the main thing holding me back is that I haven't done the research. I'm a research junky. If I'm going to buy running shoes I will read all the reviews I can get my hands on and after I've exhausted the data I make my choice. With pumps I'm afraid that I'll do my research, pick one and then something new and better will come out. I've also noticed a lot of continuous monitors - that seems to be the wave of the future and it definitely makes sense rather than having to continually, manually test. I think the Navigator is the newest technology for continuous monitoring so I'll definitely be checking that out. I'll keep everyone posted on what I find and let me know if you're using something you love or hate.

  • Went to the Boston expo and met a lot of parents with kids who were recently diagnosed with type 1. I  have been reading about the prevalence of type 2 in younger people but the since the majority of people I spoke to had kids with type 1, that makes me start thinking more about the genetic component of the disease. It also makes me think about what effect the environment might be having on these kids. All the foods today that are fortified with stuff and have tons of additives and preservatives – that has to be having some effect.

    I know I eat pretty well but should try to be more conscientious when it comes to that. It's definitely hard to limit artificial stuff in the food you eat.

  • I'm feeling a little less angry today. Went back and read my posts from the other day - must not have been a good one for me. Should check back to see what my levels were like - maybe that had an effect on my mood.

    I'm considering going back to school for my MBA. My company would pay for it and I think it would be good for me on a lot of levels. Maybe after that I can look for a job that's more related to my interests - something in health or medicine.

    Also thinking about getting a pump. I have good control now but have been reading a lot and think that it could be even better. I'll be doing my research and will try to share it here so maybe if anyone else is on the fence it can help.

  • I am not your typical diabetic.

    I was diagnosed as a teenager even though I was athletic and as far as I knew, healthy. I'm now 30, still feeling healthy, still athletic but am a diabetic. For me, diabetes is something I have to live with but I don't let it control my life. By eating right and exercising I'm able to have good control and only the people who are very close to me even know I have the condition.

    I'm really interested in learning as much as I can about diabetes in order to stay one step ahead of the disease.
