  • People will Inspire you

    When I was first diagnosed with diabetes I asked "why me?". It turns out being a diabetic has put me in place and with people I would have never gotten to see or meet. I think life is all about how you look at things. Im not one of those people that goes around saying "the glass is half full"....

  • Sports and Diabetes

    As you can probably tell by my screen name, I play soccer. With sports, we've have always been told too be careful, as exercise can drop your blood sugar, which makes perfect sense. In my experience, however, my blood sugar usually skyrockets after an intense soccer game. This could be due to the...

  • Have a great weekend

    I don't know about all of you, but I'm so glad the weekend is finally here! And it will give me some time to work with my son a bit. His numbers have been a bit high. I offered him a big reward if he can hit a 14-day average goal. Is that a bad parenting technique? Probably, but with a...

  • Edit option still needed.

    I often notice after I post that I have errors when I go back to read it. I just posted a comment to the egg article and I noticed errors after the post. Additionally, there is no way to format. My post would have been better if there were a way to put the data in two columns so it would line up...

  • T1 Kids with T1 Friends

    So I've been thinking about this lately. We've never felt a tremendous need for our son to have friends who also have diabetes. We did send him to a diabetes summer camp early on. He had some fun but certainly didn't love it. Perhaps it is because we've tried to make sure that his diabetes...

  • Is Everybody Understanding the Points?

    So, one of the main themes of the early feedback we got was questioning the point system. I was just wondering (especially for those who have used the site the most), do you feel like you understand now how the points work and what they're for? Or is it still confusing?

  • Pumping It: I'm still learning.

    After managing my diabetes with insulin shots for years, last year I finally had an insurance plan that would cover 80% of an insulin pump. A year later, I still feel like I'm learning how to manage with it. My biggest problem seems to come from the pump site going bad. I know I'm supposed...

  • Pump Woes

    I've had a Cozmo pump for almost 5 years. I'm now on something like my 4th or 5th pump. I have gotten new pumps for various reasons, however one of the more disappointing ones was this: During the summer a couple years ago I had a water-fight with my siblings. Of course I always take my pump...
