How to be involved in #WhereThePumpAreYou?

How to be involved in #WhereThePumpAreYou?
When we created this, I immediately thought of the move “Up in the Air.” You’ll understand why in a second. Yesterday, I sat with some pretty insightful media folks on a committee to help the American Diabetes Association’s Chicago chapter launch its social media campaign for the Expo in April. If you don’t know, the... Read more »

The point of accepting your diabetes

The point of accepting your diabetes
OCTOBER! It’s been months since I’ve posted and I’m so sorry about that. I’ve been busy trying to get a company off the ground and also trying to manage all other aspects of my life. Wow, it’s been way too long. Good thing though, I have some great ideas for blogs just for my readers... Read more »

Always plugged in #FirstWorldProblems
So I have a hard time sleeping. For those of you who have followed my blog before, or even read a few, you’ll know that I have had a continuous glucose monitoring sensor (CGMS) for a few months now. It looks like a little shell and is taped to my side, usually away from my... Read more »

I'm back on the grind

I'm back on the grind
So here I am again. Writing. Thank the good Lord. Anyway, have we ever talked about teeth on this blog? I thought about it because I went to the dentist yesterday. I go for a six month cleaning and have built quite a relationship with my dental hygienist and dentist. “Just saw your parents in... Read more »

I'm better because I'm both

I'm better because I'm both
This falls in line with a lot of different things, doesn’t it? The title of the blog, I mean. But in my case, I’m better because I’m a lot of things. Where is this coming from? Well, Latina Smart asked me if I’d like to be featured on their next Twitter party. Are you serious, I... Read more »

People call me Kiki because of my Twitter handles, not because they’ve known me forever. Only my family and life-long friends know me as Kiki, so hearing my name out there is sometimes kind of weird. I feel like I should be closer to the folks that call me Kiki, but I’m not. Anyway, I... Read more »

Insurance Dependent: The financial reality of living with Diabetes

Universal healthcare would solve so many problems, wouldn’t it? I mean, seriously. We would be a healthier country, save more lives, be happier people and we would be able to do what we wanted without being in desperate need for insurance coverage and paying away our security. You don’t know what it’s like to be... Read more »

El Blog en Español: La primera

Siempre me preguntan si tengo el blog en Español. No, no escribo tanto en Español como lo leo, pero siento que lo debo de hacer de vez en cuando por muchas razones. Número uno: La mayoría de personas con quién hablo son latinos y tienen la diabetes tipo 2. Más frequentemente que no, la gente... Read more »

Losing your mind! Or maybe just your CGMS sensor.

Losing your mind! Or maybe just your CGMS sensor.
So I run. I tried running every day but it failed because of exhaustion, heat and keeping myself busy with other things. Yesterday, I figured I’d go for a run as the sun was going down. Mind you, I don’t really run more than two miles every time I get out there, but I do... Read more »
