Happy (?) Anniversary

My four-year-diabetes-diagnosis anniversary is almost here.   It falls on March 24th, a day just like any other to most people, but a day full of sadness, loss, and victory for me.  Will I celebrate?  I'm not sure if reflection is a form of celebration.  I'd much prefer a birthday-like affair featuring balloons, cards, and, of course, something sweet to eat. But I also feel as if the impending date is much like a funeral on the calendar, a time for mourning as well as reflection.

A Chat with Kelli Kuehne on Life, Golf, and Diabetes

In 1994, Kelli Kuehne was on a roll. That year, she won the United States Girls Junior Amateur Golf Championship and a year later, she won the U.S. Women's Amateur Golf Championship, repeating that win in 1996 while also taking the British Ladies Amateur Golf Championship. The roll continues. Today, Kelli Kuehne is still playing matches in the LPGA and, through it all, has never allowed type 1 diabetes to beat her on the golf course or in her life.

Just in Time for Father’s Day, a Grateful Nod to the Hardworking Parents of Kids with Diabetes

I hear voices in my surroundings as the cloud of confusion gradually begins to lift. "Curtis, can you hear me?" "Curtis, what was the score of the football game?" "Curtis, do you know where you are?"

Show Me The Love

Cards, gifts, chocolates, flowers, and romantic gestures. Isn't that what Valentine's Day is supposed to be about? My husband Brian and I had been going on that theory until 2002, when the holiday had the audacity to come around one month after our son Danny was diagnosed with diabetes. That year, we woke up, wished each other Happy Valentine's Day, and started talking about blood sugar levels, carbohydrates, insulin, exercise, and pharmacies. We hit those same topics during the day by phone, and although we vaguely planned to go out for dinner, by evening Danny wasn't feeling well, and we spent part of the night on the phone to Children's Hospital. We did remember to kiss goodnight before we collapsed into a restless sleep, but were poised for the alarm to wake us so we could test Danny's blood sugar levels again at midnight.

Remember that New Year's resolution that you made a few weeks ago?  Oh yeah, that one.  How's that going?  If you're like most people, you may have started to slack off just a little bit.  Or even worse, maybe it's already a distant memory.  No worries, I won't tell.  Let's get you going again.

Reaching the Finish Line
Reaching the Finish Line

As an Ironman triathlete with type 1, I get asked a lot of questions.

How do you control your blood sugar during a race?

What foods do you eat?
What products do you use?
How do you balance work, family, training, and diabetes?

Sometimes, people simply ask me if I am nuts.

Bon Voyage: You CAN Take that Trip You’ve Been Dreaming About… Just Plan Ahead
Bon Voyage: You CAN Take that Trip You’ve Been Dreaming About… Just Plan Ahead

I’ve always been a pretty good traveler. I simply checked the weather at my destination and packed accordingly. Easy. Then I learned that I had diabetes, and suddenly even weekend trips required an intense amount of additional preparation.
