7 months since diagnosis + hit a couple milestones on this journey we have not asked to travel. Pump was officially started today. Plus he allowed us to change his site to his back, so his poor belly can try to heal a little bit. He is handling having the #dexcom on his arm very well - even though he acted as if the world would end if we put it there. I still cry as soon as we turn into the hospital parking lot but did make it through the appt without actually crying. Choking it back doesn’t count as crying right 😬 💙 #t1d

So yesterdays italian flavoured butternut squash was a bit of a fail as the butternut squash was slightly undercooked and the italian filling made me crave spag bol. 😂 so as soon as I got home I made bolognese out of the filling by adding chopped tomatoes, veg stock and soya mince and am using @explorecuisine edamame spaghetti 🍝 then I turned the flesh of the squash into butternut squash soup following chit chatting to @silviarivero1 this afternoon 😁👍❤💖💜💛💚💙
Today marks the 7th year of me being a diabetic. 7 years of shots, finger pokes, countless doctors appointments and hospital visits. I’m proud to have learned about everything and that I have been able to overcome a lot of the obstacles thrown my way. I’m still trying to get everything leveled out, but it’s been becoming easier. Still, even after all this time, I have problems with constant highs and lows.
But I will continue to try my best.
Thanks to everyone who has been here trying to help me and trying to remind me that I need to check and inject before food 😋❤️
Do you know what this is ?
Welllll..... Probably not 😂
I’ve noticed that lots of people don’t know alot about Medtronics “IPort Advanced”... That is really sad actually because its such a great product.
To make it easy to explain I will use an insulin pump infusion site as an example.. This round thing 😬 Is basically an infusion site made to put you insulin pens needle/ syringe inside the rubber piece and then you can inject insulin! It works with a cannula that is under your skin. Just like an insulin pump site it gets changed every 3 or so days and it uses a very similar insertion device as the minimed mio infusion set. Its an amazing product to use if your are scared of needles or just don’t like injecting. I love it!! I dont have and insulin pump yet, but I really want one ! This is basically the closest thing to it, but you have to figure out the bolus rates your self👍🏻 I Ports are amazing !! I don’t know if you get them in the US or UK, but it was a little bit of a ‘craze’ here in South Africa a few years ago, and I am still using it !
Hope it helps to clear confusions about what this is 😄
This time last year I was sat in Urgent care with an unconscious Olivia not knowing what was wrong but hoping it was nothing serious, 4 hrs later & she was in resus surrounded by doctors & we were given the news I'd been dreading...."your child is critically ill" "will she be ok?" I asked? "we hope so" 🙁 at 4am she was taken to Bristol Royal Children's Hospital's Intensive care unit by the Watch team (an ambulance specifically for children). I'm not very religious but I prayed & prayed for the whole duration of the journey. I sat next to her bed in ICU holding her little hand trying to comprehend it all...my 6yr old now had type1 diabetes, why? how?. But she is a little fighter and just 24 hrs later she asked for a drink. Our lives as a family have changed forever, 4+injections a day, numerous finger pricks & constant carb counting but I am thankful everyday that she is still with us. Olivia wanted to have a 1st birthday party for her diabetes but we settled on a small cake with a candle 🎂 Happy 1 year diaversary my beautiful little fighter, my hero, my princess 💖
It’s a big week in Dallas, TX! @beyondtype1 and @typeonerun have officially teamed up and I am hosting the first Dallas run this Saturday!! If you’ll be in town for the @jdrf_dallas Type One Nation Summit next Sunday, I’d love to see you! I‘ll be at the Summit on Sunday as well and am excited to get to see those of you who will be there (looking at you @typeonetypehappy and @nerdscanfight )!! Some of the endos I’ve worked with are also going! This weekend will be my first time off in two weeks and I’m excited to spend it not just talking the talk, but walking the walk (and running the run)! Come join in! #livebeyond
When I was younger I often envied non-diabetic people. I thought they were lucky, because they could skip meals, eat whatever they want... So free! When I grew older I was surprised that some of my friends with healthy pancreas would not skip their meal for any reason. And most of them deliberately choose proper meals and reject fast food. The need to eat regularly turned out not to be a diabetic person's characteristic only. It's you know...a normal human behavior 😂if only teenage me knew that!
You can't see it very well but today I ran out of insulin right before lunch at school, I barely had enough for my BG adjustment because of my blood sugars running higher for some reason. Just a bunch of unfortunate events. #t1d#diabetic
This bag is my everything 😅 I have my pens, insulin, dextro, extra infusionset and extra resovioarer to my pump. And my bg meter. If I need to change my pump when Im on the go. Do you pump user have a bag like this when you're leaving the house? 🌸
