Mornings 💤 ‘manage your diabetes first before sorting out your baby’ they said to me in hospital. All very well and good but when your baby is hungry nothing is stopping me feeding her! I do try to check my levels before getting up just to check that I’m safe to wait a while before breakfast. Takes us an age to get out of the house!! #type1diabetic #type1mom #newmum #morningroutine #insulindependent

I’m actually loving the Sure-T sites! I thought they’d be painful, and I’d hate them! But I’ve gone through almost a whole box now and not felt any of them! I’m also giving Apidra ago again, I just came off my mood stabilisers for my bipolar, and noticed how much less insulin I need, it must’ve been making me insulin resistant! So, I thought I’d try Novorapid and Apidra again and see if they “work” now! . . . #type1diabetes #T1D #typeonediabetes #typeone #diabetes #diabadass #diabeticsofinstagram #t1dlookslikeme #diabetesblog #type1life #type1warrior #type1strong #diabeticproblems #insulindependent #insulinjunkie #insulinaddict #diabetesawareness #thisisdiabetes #findacure #pancreasproblems #CGM #insulinpump #medtronic #medtronicminimed #medtronic640g #medtronicCGM #medtronicenlite

I’ve been going for 30-min morning walks before breakfast during this vacation. My Dawn Phenomenon has been raging, so I’ve been taking 2 full units before my walks to get it down to a reasonable rate and, even more importantly, to prep for the scrumptious bread baskets at breakfast 😋. Also such a luxury being able to jump in the pool to cool down after. I’m not a great swimmer. It’s one of those activities that sounds great, then I do two laps before remembering that swimming sucks 😆. . #DiabetesStrong #diabadass #type1diabetes #diabeticlife #diabetesawareness #T1DLOOKSLIKEME #T1D #t1dstrong #type1strong #t1diabetic #t1diabetes #diabetic #type1 #typeone , #Dexcom #t1diabetesawareness #typeonediabetes #type1diabetic #type1warrior #insulindependent #t1dlife #type1d #diabetestype1 #Insulin #bloodsugar

When you're at a concert and you suspend your insulin pump and your levels keep trending down. Am I cured? #typeonediabetes #typeoneisme #insulindependent #insulinpump #medtronic #enlitesensor #lowtrends #pancreaspunked

Exercise is great for blood sugars and a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety, both immediately and in the long term. Sometimes you do things you don't want to to get the results you need. #itsworthit #youcandoit 💪💜
Keep your friends close and your giant bag of low supplies even closer 😬 - #THISISWHATDIABETESLOOKSLIKE

Just got back from church camp✝️and if was great! Didn’t have much problems with my blood sugar except for the occasional low,⬇️but did have one mishap🙄While on our hike👟it started to POUR down rain🌧 and while I tried my best to keep my phone📱and PDM dry, my PDM didn’t make it. It seemed fine and barely wet, but when I tried to turn it on it was dead☠️and wouldn’t turn on no matter what. My mom called📞OmniPod and they overnighted a new one to me so it was at my house🏠waiting for me when I got home today👍 - - - #diabetes #diabetic #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #t1d #chronicillness #health #medical #brokenpancreas #insulindependent #type1 #typeone #t1dlookslikeme #insulin #novolog #insulinpump #omnipod #omnipodinsulinpump #dexcom #dexcomg6 #cgm #continuousglucosemonitor #bloodsugar #diabetesawareness #t1dawareness #beyondtype1 #livebeyond #jdrf
Making progress??? I got the One Drop App downloaded to my FitBit Ionic Watch, but it hasn’t synced yet and it doesn’t tell me my blood sugars 😭😭😭 I’m ready for FitBit to get this working so I can be done looking like and idiot with two watches. I wear my FitBit on my left wrist and my Apple Watch on my right. I waste a lot of time in my day explaining to people why I look like a moron. ____________________________________________________________ #OneDrop #InsulinJunkie #Insulin #DiabetesCommunity #InsulinDependent #InvisibleDisease #InsulinPump #Diabetes #DiabetesAwareness #DiabetesType1 #DiabetesSucks #DiabetesLife #T1D #T1Diabetes #T1DLooksLikeMe #KickingDiabetesAss #JDRF #Dexcom #Medtronic #MedtronicDiabetes #LowCarb #Keto #KetoDiet #Diabadass #Type1Warrior #TypeOneDiabetic #BeyondType1 #T1Diabetic #Diabetic #DiabetesProblems
Woke up this morning determined to make the waffles I was craving. I had just changed my injection site last night and my blood sugar was 230. Wait, what?!?! No! Took some correction insulin and continued making waffles. Checked my blood sugar again and now it was 290. Okay, what! 🤬 - Changed my injection site which turned out to be kinked, waited a little while till it was back to normal and BAM 12:45 pm and I’m enjoying my waffles. Never give up on your dreams. 😅 - #type1diabetes #insulindependent #insulinpump #insulinpumpproblems #t1d #eeeeeats #yummy #delicious #kodiakcakes #wholegrains #waffles #blueberries #breakfastforlunch #whynot #registereddietitian #rd #nutrition #strugglebus

But can we?! Today is not better than yesterday. Or overnight. I feel like the definition of insanity- doing the same thing over again expecting different results. 🤪🎗️🤪 #ineedsleep #t1dmom #parentingdiabetes #t1dtoddler #weneedacure #typeonediabetes #type1diabetes #growingupt1 #growthspurt #infantsandinsulin #insulindependent #neonataldiabetes #notnowdiabetes #fudiabetes #duckfiabetes #kidswithdiabetes
I don’t worry about going too low or too high for me. I worry about it for them. How do you deal with anxiety? Even if it’s not directly diabetes - other stressors in our lives directly effect our diabetes which causes fluctuations in our numbers..

The researchers randomly assigned diabetic participants, who were also overweight or obese, to an intensive program of diet and exercise, in which they were urged to cut calories down to 1,200-1,800 calories per day and engage in nearly three hours of physical exercise per week. After one year, 11.5 percent of the program participants no longer needed medication to keep their blood sugar levels below the diabetes threshold. Only two percent of the non-intervention group experienced any significant improvement in their condition.
In my defense, I rarely eat cashews, but seriously!! 9 carbs in 16 cashews?! Who only eats 16 cashews?! This does explain some things... 🤔 23 years with diabetes and just had yet another ah-ha moment... It’s a nut, for crying out loud!! Who put that many carbs in these suckers?! ____________________________________________________________ #NeverStopLearning #InsulinJunkie #Insulin #DiabetesCommunity #InsulinDependent #InvisibleDisease #InsulinPump #Diabetes #DiabetesAwareness #DiabetesType1 #DiabetesSucks #DiabetesLife #T1D #T1Diabetes #T1DLooksLikeMe #KickingDiabetesAss #JDRF #Dexcom #Medtronic #MedtronicDiabetes #LowCarb #Keto #KetoDiet #Diabadass #Type1Warrior #TypeOneDiabetic #BeyondType1 #T1Diabetic #Diabetic #DiabetesProblems
Checking out the campus. @universityofhouston Home of The Coogs. The humidity wrecked my BG. Took a while for my body to adjust to the weather. 🤷‍♀️ #Houston #Texas #Travels #Science #Engineering #Tech

When you don't have type 1 diabetes, you are never really gonna understand.. You're never gonna understand the feeling of having an incurable disease that is trying to kill you.. One that will most likely take years of your life away.. One that you did nothing to get.. The nights of praying you will wake up the next morning and thanking God you did.. All the finger pricks, & needle pokes.. The way it wrecks havoc on every part of your life because every hormone effects your blood sugar.. Insulin is the only hormone to bring your sugar down.. Praying all your bloodwork comes back in range.. All the calculations you have to do to just survive.. The preparations you have to make just to go anywhere.. To have a plan of action if you were to ever get stranded and run out of insulin.. All the jokes you have to listen to and read about a disease that is so misunderstood.. All the looks and questions of how and why you're doing what you're doing.. All the days you just wanna say forget it.. I don't wanna do this anymore.. But knowing I have to, to live.. I don't wanna die, not like this.. I'm ready when God is ready to take me.. I sometimes put on a show of strength.. Make it look easy.. But I'd be lying if I told you I didn't get angry or upset.. Well, it is stressful to say the least.. We all have our stressors, this is one of mine..
Received this package today!! I am pretty excited to start this journey. I am getting back on my insulin pump; Which means I don’t have to take 4-5 shots a day. The best part of this package is the Dexcom. It is a continuous glucose monitor. This device will monitor my blood sugar around the clock with notifications of high and low blood sugars. I no longer have to prick my finger 4-8 times a day. Some days are worse than others. I can no longer feel the symptoms of highs and lows until they are severe. Thankfully I have not passed out or gotten into an accident due to that BUT I sure have noticed the mood changes, weight issues and other complications that come with the fluctuations. The Dexcom can also alert my husband and other family through notifications sent to their phones. HOW COOL is that!! In the long run this will help my quality of life with diabetes. I am doing this so I can be the healthy mom and wife that I want to be for my family. If you don’t mind over the next few weeks keep me in your prayers as this journey will be tiring as my body adjusts. Also keep my husband and kids in your prayers as well while I adjust. 💕 #dexcomg6 #omnipod #diabetestype1 #insulindependent #insulinpump #diabetessucks #findacure #thiswilldo #diabadass #mypancreasquit #22yearsago
(Unpaid ad) There are so many things you can treat a hypo with as there are opinions about it floating around on the internet. I have tried loads of them, but I feel like I can rely best on glucose tabs when my BG goes below 50. Anything above that, I am a little bit more comfortable to experiment with treats like gummy bears (I love the vegan version, the original ones are unfortunately not vegan) or Skittles or sometimes even chocolate cookies. When I first got diagnosed, I was told to eat 20 grams of carbs when I HYPO, but I found that this very much depends on how low I am and why I got low in the first place. While this number of carbs is some good general advice, I actually sometimes eat more or less than that, depending on what happened (or will happen). There are just so many variables in diabetes! How many grams of carbs do you eat and what's your favourite hypo treat? #t1dlookslikeme #beyondtype1 #positivevibes #livebeyond #curediabetes #t1dlookslikeme #typeone #t1d #diabetesawareness #t1d #typehappy #nevergiveup #typeonediabetic #t1diabetes #brokenpancreas #insulin #insulindependent #highbloodsugar #lowbloodsugar #bloodglucose #invisibleillness #diabetes #diabetesonlinecommunity #t1life #t1strong
