The Pressures of Figuring it all Out
Dec 11, 2014 | 
When it comes to the medical community, sometimes I feel alone in dealing with my diabetes.  I feel like we are often left to be our own doctor and to figure things out by ourselves when blood sugars run high or low, or when illness strikes.  It really upsets me.  The nurse on the phone was giving me instructions for an upcoming surgery, and she told me that I should refrain from taking any insulin the morning of my scheduled surgery.  
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?

Diabetes is on your to-do list every day. At night, you cross out all the things you did to take care of yourself. The next day you wake up to start all over again with diabetes being on the top of the list. Some days you feel like a champion.  Other days you feel hopeless. Wondering if there really is a loving God.
