A Girl's Reflections

Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved during Diabetes Blog Week, and tell us why they’re worth reading. Or share three blogs you’ve found this week that are new to you.” This is the last topic, which I am writing a couple of days late. I tried to read as many Diabetes blog week posts, however there are so many of them.

It is going to take me a few weeks to get though all of the blogs. Aiming for grace. This feels a bit like an epiphany, like something very big, perhaps even life altering.

I know the roots of it have come from years of consideration and questioning, but last week it all came together in one very clear jolt. Diabetes is, simply put, uncomfortable. Bernard Farrell — Bitter~Sweet: Diabetes Art Day!! September 1st is always a very special day, for two reasons.

Bitter~Sweet: Diabetes Art Day!!

The first is that it’s my wonderful husband’s birthday!!! Happy Birthday, SweetPea - may your year be filled with joy!! What is the second reason?

Diabetes Art Day 2011

DiabetesMine. Diabetic in Calgary. Diabetic_Iz_Me — Diabetes Cure Blog. Diabetes Daily. Diabetic Connect. The Diabetic's Corner Booth. Diabetic Tattoos. It all started in November 2006 and I am amazed at how far we have come and how many lives we have impacted!

Diabetic Tattoos

We began as a group of people with diabetes in their lives who wanted to do something different to raise diabetes awareness. For some it was a challenge, for some it was a fantasy come true, for all it was a very public display of love. The tattoos here are as permanent in our lives as diabetes is. Please enjoy the art, love the stories and share your own if you wish! Click on images to view larger pictures. Here is the tattoo that started it all--my own tribute to my sons November is Diabetes Awareness Month and so November of 2006 seemed the appropriate time to have a diabetes awareness tattoo created. Diabetes does not make that easy. Across North America—from Newfoundland to California, people came together through Diabetes Advocacy with one common goal. No one in my immediate family had a clue that I was even considering this.

Please share your tattoo and story with us. Gina Capone - your diabetes bff! I am happy to announce that my husband and I are expecting our first baby due November 12!!!

My Diabetic Heart » Blog Archive » A DOC Logo – Diabetes Art Day. It’s OK to Need Help by Mike on March 20th, 2011 In previous blog posts and conversations over the last two years, I’ve made no bones about the fact that I’ve battled with bouts of depression and anxiety since I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and type 2 diabetes.

The daily routines of medications, blood sugar testing, meal planning, and other related bullshit, combined with the constant worry of trying to figure out how to pay for all of those medications and testing supplies, are simply overwhelming at times. Add to that all of the typical stuff that goes along with every day life, you know… work, bills, chores, relationships, etc… and you’ve got yourself a great big barrel of fun. It’s all enough to destroy someone mentally.

As difficult as it is for me to admit, I reached that point in the early part of February. Naturally Sweet. Ninjabetic - The B.A.D. Blog. Ninnifur. One Does Not Simply... *Pieces of My Life* Six Until Me. I think this is the third Friday Six in a row, which either means I'm really efficient or so jumbled in the brain region that I'm only able to concentrate on six things at a time.

Six Until Me

(A seventh thing would make everything go poof.) 1. First things first: Clara Barton Camp still rules. But they're running low on a very crucial supply these days: glucose tabs. Camp is in session through the end of August and the supply of glucose tabs at CBC is slim. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Stories of Caleb. T Minus Two. TuDiabetes.
