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 »

Diabetes Friends: We're not alone!
You know how when you take your dog to the park and they see another dog, they get all excited and they start jumping on each other, sniffing and barking? Well, I hate to say this, but sometimes we folks with diabetes feel that way too, but humanly refuse to act on it. Last night,... Read more »

Diabetes superheroes save diabetics AND do stand up!

I was looking at a link my friend sent me about a Spanish woman who is a comic book artist. Then he said, “You should have someone draw you as a diabetic superhero.” That would be funny and fun all at the same time. So of course, searches ensued to find out if there was... Read more »

“She just doesn’t get it. I don’t think this is going to work out.” “He’s a nice guy, but I just don’t feel the same anymore.” There are just some things you don’t really think about until it’s staring your right in the face, or the person that you’re talking to brings it up as... Read more »

If only people worked on their health as much as they work on beating down stereotypes.

If only people worked on their health as much as they work on beating down stereotypes.
Can we just take a second to laugh? That last blog and all the attention I got for it, was a fluke. I mean, FINALLY someone paid attention to something we, as a community, keep saying over and over and over again but it was on my diabetes blog. Like, what? A Facebook friend of... Read more »

Diabetic Discrimination

Diabetic Discrimination
Ever been discriminated against? For example: Someone doesn’t like the way you look, so they treat you differently? Basically, when people judge you in regards to something you can’t change, it’s discrimination. I’m not going to be nice to you when you have a sucky attitude, let me just say that. And a lot of...

Moderation, Balance: Make It Happen!

I’m not really a health nut because I don’t work out daily. Hell, I rarely work out. If you followed me on my previous blogs, you’ll know that my New Year’s resolution for the year was to get my A1c down to a “normal” level and SURPRISE! It’s at a 6.6 right now. That feels... Read more »

Critical thinking helps Diabetes management. Trust me.
I know, I know, it’s been a while. So sue me. I’m not the leading blogger in terms of hits on this site, so why should I care, right? Ha! Bad attitude!
