A Daughter's Apology
Dec 30, 2014 | 
My mother is a diabetic--something that shouldn't be someone's identifier, but unfortunately it has defined her life. This is my apology to her and to everyone struggling with un-understanding families. This is my account of what it is like from the outside looking in, knowing it is my potential future, and coming to terms with how I wasn't there for my mother.
Stressed for the Holidays? Here’s the Antidote
Dec 19, 2014 | 
Too much holiday hustle and bustle can be a prescription for stress, anxiety and even depression. Many  people feel bad during what is supposed to be one of the happiest times of the year.  

All the holiday fun takes a lot of work. Shopping, baking, decorating, partying, traveling – the additional activities and needs take up time and money, putting pressure on already busy schedules and limited finances.  People often eat more, drink more and sleep less. Sometimes, this season bring up feelings of loneliness, loss and grief. It can all be too much for our overloaded psyches.

Besides dampening the joy of the season, too much stress can affect our health. According to “Psychosomatic Medicine,” stress can produce secondary symptoms equivalent to complications from diabetes, hypertension or arthritis. Seventy percent of individuals who are stressed experience physical symptoms, lower productivity at work and disruptions in their family and social lives. Unfortunately, many physicians may misdiagnose the patient’s problem and prescribe medications for the symptoms, rather than recognizing the underlying problem. And of course, medications themselves can lead to unfortunate side effects.

The Fear of Knowing
Dec 9, 2014 | 
I picked up a pamphlet at my Endocrinologist’s office today that discusses the process of getting children screened for autoantibodies. These markers can signify the development of Type 1 diabetes up to ten years before it  takes hold. This fascinates and terrifies me in the same breath. I can find out if my children are prone to developing the disease I’ve survived for 16 years, but how will I handle the news if one of my children returns a positive result for having the markers of Type 1 diabetes?

Aug 16, 2014 | 
One of the pluses of having a working pancreas is that you do not often lose it. The organ just comes along for the ride, as it were, safe inside your abdomen.
