Here’s the story… of a lovely lady… who lives life a little on the sweet side! And this blog is a means of sharing how one woman can balance a husband, two kids, and life in general- with a side of diabetes.  I add the sweetness to their lives one finger prick at a time 😉  I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes in July 2005 and type II in October 2006.

I have since struggled with many different recommendations and treatments, diets and meds, and have come close to “controlled” with my minimed paradigm.


Here’s to you, my little purple best friend





P.S. I am in NO way a medical professional and I only speak about my personal struggle/daily life with diabetes for my own therapy and your entertainment.  I am not giving medical advice or instructions when writing about my equipment, usage, or diet.

    Hi! I just read your comment on my give-away post. I certainly hope & pray that the reading for your son was a fluke. Either way, don’t forget that you can do this! Check out Kim’s project called “You Can Do This” on her blog called Texting My Pancreas. Diabetes isn’t easy, but we have each other. The online community is amazing.

    I’m the same as Cara here – just read your comment on her give-away-post – and am hoping too that your sons BG reading was just a fluke (did you wash his hands before testing – resulting in high BG reading?). Anyway, my thought are with you – and BTW – I did the same thing as you – with going off the pump for awhile (6 months). I missed Salvador Dali abit during that time – but it made me relearn diabetes abit (I’ve had diabetes most of my life since I was 6 – but I’m still learning new things). So, glad that we have an online community for us D-heros (we are all heros in my eyes with coping with the daily challenges of diabetes). Take care my friend! And psst, I did my 1st vlog (pretty crappy version IMHO – did it on a windy day) – for Kim’s “You Can Do It” project – you can check it out at this link (I work at Diabetes1.org as a D-mentor) – http://www.diabetes1.org/blogs/Annas_Blog/You_Can_Do_This_Project

      Thank you guys so much for all your support!!! We actually went to our PCP this morning- my son’s fasting blood glucose was 146 that dropped to 62 within an hour and an a1c of 5.0- so, still praying it was a fluke! We are going to see a Peds Endo just to do a complete work-up, but things ate still a little up in the air, but promising! Thank you all for the support, love, and kindness!!!
