It’ll still be two days ’til I say I’m sorry

28 Mar

One week down…51 to go. I’m still trying to figure out how I want to make this a feature of the blog.

March 21, 2011 – “No Days Off”

It turns out that when I sprung forward on my pump around 11PM the other week, I never changed the date. So my pump has been a day behind. I skipped it forward this morning. Unlike the magic of technology, you can’t take a day off from diabetes. You go through the management motions on a constant basis, and I’ve been doing it for nearly 15 years.

March 22, 2011 – “Low Key”Car keys and low blood sugar do not go together. You can’t drive low. It’s irresponsible and it’s irritating. I was late for school that day. Diabetes gets in the way of my obligations and responsibilities.

March 23, 2011 – “Roller Coaster”

Technically “in range” but it doesn’t mean I can’t feel the changes on this mini blood sugar roller coaster.

March 24, 2011 “Pumping in the Parking Lot”

Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. After a quick trip the grocery store I filled up my pump reservoir, otherwise I wouldn’t have made it through the rest of the day.

March 25, 2011 – “Leader…in diet beverage options”

Chick-fil-A is controversial and I can’t say I agree with all of their practices, but I do love the fact that they have a bunch of diet drink options. It’s the little things that matter most when you have diabetes.

March 26, 2011 – “What Goes Up…”

Must come down. And sometimes it’s a plummeting blood sugar level.

March 27, 2011 “Flatline”

Typically in medicine you don’t want to see a flatline, but when it comes to in range blood sugar…that’s exactly what I want!

Diabetes 365, again…

21 Mar

I realized on Saturday that I was exactly 6 months from my 20th birthday. Which means that today marks exactly 6 months until my 15th Diaversary. What better way to celebrate this huge diabetes accomplishment then track my (D)life through pictures. I’m going to try Diabetes365 again. I don’t know if I’ll have the time to update on Flickr, so it might just be a strictly blog project. Perhaps even a new page here? Anyway…

Day 1: No Days Off. It turns out that when I sprung forward on my pump around 11PM the other week, I never changed the date. So my pump has been a day behind. I skipped it forward this morning. Unlike the magic of technology, you can’t take a day off from diabetes. You go through the management motions on a constant basis, and I’ve been doing it for nearly 15 years.
