my mum, my nan & myself 🙌🏼 these two are my biggest supporters. my rocks. my nan makes up for the dad I never had. I'd be lost without them. we've been through some motherfucking TOUGH times together but through it all we have stuck together as one & I know, we'd all do anything for each other ❤️
so as you know from my last post I came home last tuesday & after only being home ONE full day my feeding tube broke 😭 it basically split for no reason & exploded all my feed & stomach contents out on me at 4am last thursday morning!!!! 😱 I couldn't believe it. after more than a year in HELL I finally came home, after 13 months, to my version of HEAVEN to have my feeding tube break not even TWO DAYS after being home. I was (and still fucking am), absolutely devastated beyond words, angry as FUCK and wayyy too many other emotions to list 😡
but after speaking to my main doctor (my gastroenterologist) we came up with a plan that I would come in to hospital (i.e HELL) on tuesday the 12th (tomorrow,) early morning, have the tube replaced late morning & go home in the afternoon. so that's the plan for tomorrow!!
I'm really really anxious that everything will go according to plan & just generally super anxious for the whole day. the main thing I'm super worried about is having to stay in. it just brings back so many awful, traumatic memories of when I was first admitted to hospital this time last year 😩 because when I was first admitted they said I would be in a week, 2 weeks max & it turned into 13 FUCKING MONTHS. I'm just terrified of something like this happening again! I'm sure everything will be fine & this time tomorrow it will all be over & I'll be at home 🏡 in my own room again but it's just a worry I can't help but have! thank you to everyone who has been there supporting me through this journey & a huge thank you to everyone who welcomed me home, it felt amazing to know that so many people truly care for me so thank you 🙏🏼💙 I'll update you on tomorrow as soon as I'm able to!!
Немного о красоте по Вьетнамски😏 Вьетнамки постоянно отчебучивают приколы и рекомендации насчет моей внешности. Представления о том, что такое красиво у нас разные 😩
1. Если цвет лица гармонирует с цветом трупа зимой - бьютифул, загорела - все!!! Финиш бьютифул 😂
2. Красные губы и мейкап - " вери бьютифул герл", без макияжа или с небольшим -"но мейкап нот бьютифул "так и говорят. ..
3. На волосы мои смотрят - "бьютифул калор, бат а лот оф хеаз, беттер кат ит😒".
5. Глаза светлые им очень нравятся
6. Я с точки зрения вьетнамок - фэт, но не вери 😂 а вот все кто за 60- вери фэт...
Как то так... #вьетнам#нячанг#vietnam#nhatrang#diabetes#diabetic#medtronic#insulinpump#мореморе#всемлюбви#всемдобра
А что, если это диабет?! Вчера моей лучшей подруге врач посоветовал сдать кровь на сахар. Чувствую свою вину, так как о том, что она много пьет, она говорит уже давно. А я как-то значения этому не придавала. "Ну, будет диабет и будет, не переживай", - сказала мне подруга. Хм, вот если честно, то я ни капли не переживаю за то, если вдруг, не дай Бог, поставят этот диагноз. Уж кому, как не нам с вами знать, что диабет - это не конец жизни и живешь ты с ним, практически не замечая его. Так что в этом плане переживаний совсем нет. Нервами этот факт не изменишь, болезнь не отгонишь, надо будет просто научиться жизнь чуть-чуть по-другому. И я, конечно же, помогу. Причина моей паники заключается в другом. А что, если это реально диабет?!! Что, если организм продолжительное время живет в постоянном стрессе, в жутких сахарах. А ведь это и отсутствие сил, смена настроений, постоянная жажда и риск осложнений. А разговоры о том, что много пьет идут, как уже говорила, давно... И с этим затягивать ни в коем случае нельзя! Если есть подозрения, срочно необходимо бежать и сдавать сахара. И чем раньше выясниьтся, да или нет, тем лучше, если все-таки да...
Господи, сделай так, чтобы моя подруга осталась в моем инстаграме просто как моя лучшая подруга, а не как еще и друг - новый диабетик... #diabet#diabetic#yes#no#question#diahelp#диабет#диабетик#сахарныйдиабет#уколы#образжизни#зож#lifestyle#life#healthcare#здоровье#вопрос#анализы#тест#test#blood#friends#друзья
T- 48hours until my travels back up north ☺️
So excited I could cry rn 👨👩👧👧🐶
Give me all the family time, all the food and alla the cuddles.
One of my biggest struggles on dealing with diabetes is the sheer frustration it can give you when it just won’t go your way for any real apparent reason..
Your high won’t come down because you just aren’t reacting to insulin, your hypo was a bad one and left you feeling really shitty, but no one really understands, you ran out of insulin in your kit bag, there’s no sugar on hand, you don’t feel like injecting yourself 6+ times a day..
Idk, I’m sure everyone has them and most of the time we keep it to ourselves because it’s easier..
It’s okay to talk about it and be stressed, it’s normal and talking helps ❤️
You’re all amazing and we can fight it together 💉
Isn't it wonderful when your bloods go from 12 and you feeling 80% fine to 22 and you feeling positively shite in the space of 1hr 15mins 😩 #FailedSitesSuck
Finally made it to the gym 👌🏼 brought this entire gym outfit (top, crop, tights) for $40! Australia you suck
I normally use IV Prep by Smith & Nephew as my go-to sticky stuff because I get it through Medtronic.
In a search for something new I ordered Skin Prep on Amazon and am loving how well it’s working. It’s not insanely wet like IV (sometimes that actually messes up my stickers with how long it takes to dry), and my two day old insertion site still looks brand new.
Any other pumpers have a good solution to keeping sites stuck? I’d love to know what I should try next!
I Januari börjar ett äventyr på andra sidan jorden. Ett äventyr som börjar i Malaysia och avslutar i Thailand. Ett äventyr där jag kommer få stor erfarenhet av att göra en långresa med diabetes. Ska bli väldigt intressant att få uppleva.
When I was first diagnosed and was released from critical care unit....what I found quite overwhelming was the sheer amount of paraphernalia you have to carry ALL the time to deal with the condition.
Initially I started and kept everything in there original pouches but then I found I ended up with like 5 separate pouches with loads of bits and bobs all over the place and pencils case type case didn’t have no dividers.
I then found these #elitebags which now house all my diabetic needs in one place!
Make life so much easier one bags = go 💼
Bag has different areas to help organise bits and pieces they are also insulted (isothermal)which helps with hot/cold weather and they also include a gel sachet too for very hot places.
Uk price is about £5 come I a range of colours and I find I get through one a year (not worn out just looks grubby but are washable) so I am due a new one 😃i then relegate the old one for my spare kit which is great when you travel! #win
Hey everyone! So I just had a sudden idea to start a sort of instagram blog thing as a way to help me improve testing for my diabetes management and also management of my Ulcerative Colitis.
Recently I've had a bad flare up of my ulcerative colitis and have been started on prednisolone again. I currently control my diabetes with injections, but within the next week I will be returning to my insulin pump therapy.
I hope you enjoy my journey of getting better!
This is my current blood sugar, which is good for me because I've been high all day due to a bug. I'm gonna have an English muffin and give some insulin, I haven't been able to eat much recently due to the flare up of my colitis but hopefully the prednisolone will increase my appetite again!

☃ ...here's one for my fellow T1Ds who live in snowy climates: snow shovelling-blood sugar roulette! How did my BG respond to the chore of shovelling last night's 10ish cm snowfall?!? Scroll to see! 🌨I find that if the snow is heavy/wet, my BGs will rise after shovelling. By contrast, if the snow is light, my BGs tend to drop after shovelling. ❄️How do your shugs behave post-shovel?❄️
Testimony Tuesday ♥️ Still thinking that Plexus is just about weight loss think again 🤗
Listen to one mother's story ~ The guy in the picture is my son....There is hope for T1 Diabetics!! What if it could help you live a healthier life? Would it be worth it? Absolutely!
Plexus Slim was originally created for Type 2 Diabetics but T1's also see huge benefits! (along with non-diabetics like us)
"Type 1 Diabetes is tough! My son, Noah, was diagnosed at the age of 8, and for 10 years now we have lived with it. Anyone familiar with T1D knows that no matter how accurately you dose the insulin, your body will not always utilize it the same way. This causes drastic high blood sugar, down to dangerous low blood sugar.
We have tried so many ways to manage it - extremely low carb, different supplements, no gluten, etc. But he still was on very high insulin levels, and his blood sugar would swing wildly out of control for no reason we could pinpoint. Frustrating.
I didn't think Plexus would help him. He eats a very healthy diet and is already very active. "Plexus is for Type 2", I thought...
But we tried it - and I'm glad we did!
Within the first week his blood sugar was more steady. It still fluctuated, but the swings were more like 60-180 instead of 30-300! Now, he has had to lower his insulin levels TWICE! And his blood sugar has been consistently more stable! He is T1 and will always need insulin - but Plexus has helped his body to utilize the insulin better, and we are so thankful!
If you know someone with T1 diabetes, I would strongly suggest trying Plexus for them! As a mother of a T1, I just really want to see other T1's being helped." #testimonytuesday#bloodsugar#diabetic#a1c#t1#type1diabetes#type2diabetes#balancedbloodsugars#insulin
well, mercury retrograde is completely kicking my butt this week🌔🙈I swear i'm hyper sensitive to attracting all the communication issues during these phases. They say not to sign contracts, make travel plans,or you might have issues with technology or communicating when the planet is doing its thing.
I'm launching a huge project next Monday that I want so bad to be perfect ( announcing it later today on IG stories!) and of course the video footage we shot last week did not come out good and we have to reshoot the whole 5 hours again tomorrow🙄.
What's getting me through the day is knowing:
1. it's up to me to have a flexible mind and let go of holding onto expectations so tightly.
2. Everything is going to end up in the end exactly how it is meant to
3. We rarely see the bumps in the road that came before the great end result. Keep going, it's all part of the process.
