The cost of insulin in the United States is higher than the rest of the world. It has tripled in cost from 2002-2013. •
•
When humulog (my main form of insulin) was released in 1996 it cost $21. Now, it can cost $300 without insurance. I need at least two of these a month to stay alive. ✌🏼
•
•
Unlike many other medications there are no generic insulins for type 1 diabetics available on the American market.
•
•
I used to live in Brazil without a Brazilian plan and would buy insulin over the counter for $40. Lived in Argentina with a health plan and my monthly insulin was free. There were other problems in these places but I am simply stating a fact.
•
•
My goal is to educate diabetics and non-diabetics around the world about the reality of living with diabetes, increased health care premiums and how challenging it is to live with chronic illness in America. I really think it’s time for a change and I encourage all of us to speak up and tell our senators and representatives how important this is. 👊🏼🔥

Got up bright and early this morning to run the Dreamcatcher Classic in my hometown. 🌞 Not a day goes by that I don’t think about how grateful I am for this body I inhabit. Sure, my pancreas may not work, I may have neuropathy, and my stomach may have severe delayed gastric emptying... but, I AM ALIVE. And today I RAN for FUN and not because I was being chased or something. 🏃🏼‍♀️ For a person with chronic illness, this can be a huge accomplishment. 🏅My strength and courage know no finish line. 💪🏼🏁 I will continue to work to keep myself physically able to do the things I love. ✨💙

Happy Wednesday💙. I am so happy to have my dexcom back on.  I took a break but I have missed you Dex and look forward to having better blood sugar levels👏🏻. For those of you who don't know what this is - my Dex is a Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) which is a small device that I wear on my arm that tracks my sugar levels day and night, and has info and alarms that tell my highs and lows so I can take action.  It's Bluetooth so the info goes straight to my iPhone which is cool.  It also means less fingerpokes (2x a day instead of 8-10 for me) to find out my sugar level.  I just have to look at my phone before eating or dance and make decisions based on the info!  It's much smaller than it looks in the pic. I also use GrifGrips to keep it on - check them out @grifgrips 💙. Love their designs!

Real life with a #T1D preschooler, from @mom.plus.camera - we loved this: ⠀
"This year brought preschool and another learning curve. For her, it wasn’t as simple as dropping her off, waving goodbye, and worrying about a little separation anxiety. It will be more complicated than that now, forever and always. When you’re both a parent and a full-time pancreas, life requires a detailed plan.⠀
.⠀
So we made one. Before school started, we taught her how to prick her finger and test her own blood sugar at 4 years old. We wrote instructions for everything: what to do if the number is high or low, when to test, what symptoms to watch for, and what to do if she passes out (from very low BS, which has never happened). We trained all of the staff who would have contact with her. And then, just like every other parent, we walked out the door and prayed for the best.⠀
.⠀
She’s only there a few hours each morning, and I’m happy to say we haven’t had any problems to date. The school cannot administer insulin, so I give her injections for meals before and after school. Any extra snacks/treats she receives are eaten at home. As far as all the other kids can tell, though, she’s just like them. 💕"⠀

THIS dog. She earned her keep today. I don’t think James was in range once AND our dex had the❓❓❓three times today, so we were flying blind most of the day. I wasn’t taking her seriously at one point, and she looked us dead in the eye and barked, so I checked him and he was in the 40s! She wore herself out so much that she just fell asleep right here. Good night Honey, sweet dreams!💙

Consistency. Consistency in life is a must. But consistency with diabetes has a whole other level of importance, and sometimes seems impossible. Consistency with our blood sugars is for the most part our main goal with diabetes. The more consistent we are, the more likely our numbers will be where we want them to be. If we have a set schedule, our blood sugars can be more predictable with the help of set basal rates designed for what goes on during that specific time, i.e. working out, or work (if you have a desk job). For me going to the gym around the same time everyday helps me make sure i don’t go insanely high, or low. If my schedule are scattered about, my numbers can be wildly unpredictable. So if you don’t have a consistent schedule, try to be a creature of habit and adjust using temporary basal rates (if you’re on a pump). Those can take a while to find the correct rate, but will help you tremendously! What are your thoughts? •

Officially 1 week completed on my new insulin pump today. Been pretty consistent in the 8's in the daytime, which I'll take for my first week on the pump!

I'm struggling to get through the evening fasting basal rates still. I've scaled back on the afternoon and nighttime basals but still no luck. It's a tiring process trying to fast basically every other night and waking up in the middle of the night with a low - thank goodness for lunchtime coffees to keep me going! (Tall almond milk cafe misto - 5g or carb)

Any tips of what my fellow T1D's have done to get through testing PM basals? 😪💉📉

Did you know about ⅓ of cancer patients die of cachexia (profound muscle wasting)? Cachexia is evident in several chronic conditions including cancer and diabetes and is associated with debilitating muscle weakness, reduced response to therapy and poor prognosis. The cause is still unknown and there is no cure or treatment available. Recently, the Davies group has found an immune cell type that could drastically reduce the severity of cachexia. Our ongoing research involves further understanding of this immune cell type.

Had a great meeting with @worcswarriors and @englandrugby International Chris Pennell today.

We did some public access work yesterday and mom said I did well. Still loads I hard work to be done on me alerting so a scent sample while out in public but mom is hopeful. My "down stay" command I'm doing like a champ while we are in the shops. Chriatmas is in the air and we found a HUGE christmas tree ball to take some pictures in. 👌🏼🐩🐶🎄🎀

Thriving with T1D is an art onto itself. We have full time jobs in addition to the full-time job of being diabetic. I keep coming back to the word surrender. Not in the sense of giving up but rather choosing what we give our time and energy to. There are only so many elements that we can control. 🌞⚡️☄️❄️
.
.
How do we resolve the intense emotions of fear and overwhelm while continuing to be strong for ourselves and others? It is about creating space. Training the unruly mind to move in a direction of focus so that the best qualities of the mind can shine forth. You are stronger than you know! Every day is a different. .

Happy Wednesday💙. I am so happy to have my dexcom back on.  I took a break but I have missed you Dex and look forward to having better blood sugar levels👏🏻. For those of you who don't know what this is - my Dex is a Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) which is a small device that I wear on my arm that tracks my sugar levels day and night, and has info and alarms that tell my highs and lows so I can take action.  It's Bluetooth so the info goes straight to my iPhone which is cool.  It also means less fingerpokes (2x a day instead of 8-10 for me) to find out my sugar level.  I just have to look at my phone before eating or dance and make decisions based on the info!  It's much smaller than it looks in the pic. I also use GrifGrips to keep it on - check them out @grifgrips 💙. Love their designs!

Good session today, considering I had a low blood sugar of 2.7 during the night before, Top set of OHP at 90% (72.5kg) and 4 reps in the bag so can't moan, think that's a new rep PR 💪

THIS dog. She earned her keep today. I don’t think James was in range once AND our dex had the❓❓❓three times today, so we were flying blind most of the day. I wasn’t taking her seriously at one point, and she looked us dead in the eye and barked, so I checked him and he was in the 40s! She wore herself out so much that she just fell asleep right here. Good night Honey, sweet dreams!💙

Got up bright and early this morning to run the Dreamcatcher Classic in my hometown. 🌞 Not a day goes by that I don’t think about how grateful I am for this body I inhabit. Sure, my pancreas may not work, I may have neuropathy, and my stomach may have severe delayed gastric emptying... but, I AM ALIVE. And today I RAN for FUN and not because I was being chased or something. 🏃🏼‍♀️ For a person with chronic illness, this can be a huge accomplishment. 🏅My strength and courage know no finish line. 💪🏼🏁 I will continue to work to keep myself physically able to do the things I love. ✨💙

Sure, my pancreas may not work, I may have neuropathy, and my stomach may have severe delayed gastric emptying... but, I AM ALIVE. And today I RAN for FUN and not because I was being chased or something. 🏃🏼‍♀️ For a person with chronic illness, this can be a huge accomplishment. 🏅My strength and courage know no finish line. 💪🏼🏁 I will continue to work to keep myself physically able to do the things I love. ✨💙 - #DiabetesStrong  #diabadass  #type1diabetes  #diabeticlife  #diabetesawareness  #diabetes  #T1D  #t1dstrong  #t1diabetic  #t1diabetes  #diabetic  #type1  #typeone , #T1DLOOKSLIKEME  #Dexcom  #t1diabetesawareness  #typeonediabetes  #type1diabetic  #type1warrior  #type1strong  #insulindependent  #t1dlife  #type1d  #diabetestype1  #Insulin  #bloodsugar  #Diabeticfriendly  #Diabetics  #beyondtype1 
Would you like some fries 🍟 with that ketchup?  This weekend's outing to Wendy's was an epic fail.  Connor was 42 while ordering lunch & falling.  I waited until he was back in range to dose him (78) and then split his dose to try & extend it without causing another crash.  Two hours later he was 400. 😩  But this kiddo keeps smiling!

I've been ghost because I've been finishing my last finals (ever!), packing my life up, and driving to Tampa to start my dietetic internship...and this is what I found. I think it's safe to say I love protein and its effect on my BG. Once I figured out how to bolus for it, that is

“No one else can be you” read this quote today and it is so inspiring to me. No one lives your life or knows your struggles. Only you can take charge of your life path. Be your own person. Live your own truth. .

So a lot of my rl friends don't realize that I'm dealing with this in addition to my diabetes. I had symptoms of dysautonomia even before I was dx with t1. I don't think many healthcare providers in my rural area are even aware of this. It was a neurologist who kind of out the pieces together for me. I have a hard time with my blood pressure, heart rate( #POTS ) digestion and absorbing​ both insulin and sugar from food I eat (#gastroparesis )Food never wants to stay down. I sometimes sweat profusely for no apparent reason or shiver. Sometimes my vision is worse than normal... It just sucks and I wish doctors were more aware of this and had more training.

Perfect value for this evening after I worked out 4 hours ago🙏🏽 Insulin sensitivity still active! For everthing I’ll consume at the moment, I will bolus nothing or a minimum amount! Before sleep, I will take some extra carbs, like yoghurt or nuts, to keep my value stable this night!😋🥜

Сегодня - 12 декабря - у нашей маленькой (пока еще💏) семьи уже такой большой праздник - 2 года! В наш свадебный день не было большого торжества и гуляний, не было 100 гостей и белых голубей, зато нас поддержали самые близкие люди в обоюдном желании быть поскорее вместе, не смотря на существующие между нами 2 500 км и еще десятки межгосударственных границ😏... И всё для того, чтобы сегодня я могла писать этот пост, прижавшись щекой к любимому мужчине и супругу😗.
...Люблю тебя! И большего мне не нужно❤!

Today is 2-year our wedding anniversary💍👰🤵.
...I love you💑! And I don't need more!

Here we are.. Dec 12! Exactly 365 days ago I was in the ER with my blood sugar at almost 700.
Now a year has passed from that weird day when my life changed forever. It has for sure been a rough year, full of new things to learn, problems to deal with and so much effort to accept my diagnosis.
Today, in the end, I do let my diabetes define me, because there is no single day spent without thinking about it or taking care of it. However, I don’t let it stop me from doing anything: among the other things, it has been a year of hard work, amazing travels, great food and so much fun. So yes, I have t1d, it is something that I have to live with everyday, it is undoubtedly a big part of who I am and it will always be, but I am so lucky today to look back to a year ago and realize that I have no regrets whatsoever and that I haven’t let this disease prevent me from living the exceptionally amazing life that I have. Thank you to all the people who are daily sharing the journey with me!💜

It is so hard to explain this to people who just want so badly for you to get better. It's hard to explain you have a progressive disease with no cure. I have a hard time accepting this some days myself, so I know it must be hard for the people who love me. It's ok to be angry and frustrated but don't stay there too long.

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!

Real life with a #T1D preschooler, from @mom.plus.camera - we loved this: ⠀
"This year brought preschool and another learning curve. For her, it wasn’t as simple as dropping her off, waving goodbye, and worrying about a little separation anxiety. It will be more complicated than that now, forever and always. When you’re both a parent and a full-time pancreas, life requires a detailed plan.⠀
.⠀
So we made one. Before school started, we taught her how to prick her finger and test her own blood sugar at 4 years old. We wrote instructions for everything: what to do if the number is high or low, when to test, what symptoms to watch for, and what to do if she passes out (from very low BS, which has never happened). We trained all of the staff who would have contact with her. And then, just like every other parent, we walked out the door and prayed for the best.⠀
.⠀
She’s only there a few hours each morning, and I’m happy to say we haven’t had any problems to date. The school cannot administer insulin, so I give her injections for meals before and after school. Any extra snacks/treats she receives are eaten at home. As far as all the other kids can tell, though, she’s just like them. 💕"⠀

The cost of insulin in the United States is higher than the rest of the world. It has tripled in cost from 2002-2013. •
•
When humulog (my main form of insulin) was released in 1996 it cost $21. Now, it can cost $300 without insurance. I need at least two of these a month to stay alive. ✌🏼
•
•
Unlike many other medications there are no generic insulins for type 1 diabetics available on the American market.
•
•
I used to live in Brazil without a Brazilian plan and would buy insulin over the counter for $40. Lived in Argentina with a health plan and my monthly insulin was free. There were other problems in these places but I am simply stating a fact.
•
•
My goal is to educate diabetics and non-diabetics around the world about the reality of living with diabetes, increased health care premiums and how challenging it is to live with chronic illness in America. I really think it’s time for a change and I encourage all of us to speak up and tell our senators and representatives how important this is. 👊🏼🔥

Squat day on the last training week of this cycle, Today was working up to a top of set at 90% (145kg) for 3+ reps, got 4 so I'll take that. I realised aswell that over reliance on knee wraps might of been what had caused a lot of my knee pains, so now only saving the wraps for Max attempts. My fault for being stupid and chasing numbers rather then actually working on long term strength.
