I'm Taylor, and I'm a type 1 diabetic (diagnosed almost 4 years ago) and I am currently using the Medtronic mini med pink pump. I have an Instagram account @taylor_orum that I use to connect with type 1's all around. I post pictures with encouraging & inspiring messages to help and remind people that they are not alone. There are so many of us fighting the same battle, and holding the same hope for a cure one day. I have 2 beautiful daughters, (so yes I have experience with being a pregnant diabetic, which is a challenge as well). I work out 5 days a week which helps me stay healthy and fit along with keeping my numbers in good reasonable range. I believe that even though we have bad days, it doesn't mean it's a bad life. My diabetes has stemmed my true strength. I feel like I am so much stronger because of what I deal with on a day to day basis. I believe that I'm a fighter, and I'm a warrior! My life is a day to day battle-- but I always win! My diabetes will never bring me down, it will only lift me up. I'll never give up hope for myself, for others, and for a cure. I'm probably one of the most positive diabetics you will ever meet, and I'm so happy to be a part of the diabetes community.

One of the biggest things I've learned from diabetes is to celebrate small victories. Today was stressful. Got a flat tire on freeway in the pouring rain with my son in the backseat while trying to make it to his therapy appointment on time. And Dex was not cooperating and took me forever to pair the transmitter to my new phone. I thought the stress would shoot me up but look at those numbers 😳 so I am gonna celebrate tonight with some ice cream and maybe a glass of wine too ☺️ #sohappytodayisalmostover

Babysitting one of my own means bolusing with the help of spy goggles.

Dexcom site change πŸ’‰πŸ’ͺ🏼❀️I usually do the back of my arms but I've been trying my stomach again recently. I've been getting about a week and a half - two weeks out of stomach sites with accurate readings, whereas my arms only last about a week. Where do you guys like putting yours? πŸ“ˆπŸ“‰ #CGM #livebeyond

Well squats are still pain free but had no power tonight. I'll have to hit a PR in my new #neversate shirt next time. Shoutout to @theloyalbrand for awesome feel of their shirts. Check out @neversate for some impressive lifting and content to help you get stronger. Check out video on facebook where I talk more about Brian Alsruhe and what he is doing in the strength community. #bolusandbarbells #cavetroll #dspchampion #strongman #weightlifting #crossfit #powerlifter #fitness #fitfam #athlete #training #diabeticlife #diabetic #diabetes #diabetesawareness #diabeticathlete #insidethediabeticathlete #diabeast #typeone #T1D #dexcom

Left this unedited, but it still doesn't do justice to how red my face is! I have not been holding true to my IG name, as I have been failing to run with diabetes both physically and mentally lately. My numbers have been off their rocker and I've been a bit of a lazy bum. Anyway, trying to get back into the swing of things. Last week I did a mile in 9:09 and today I did one in 8:24. Feeling pretty great! Definitely fell off my "half marathon wagon," but I'll get there πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹

The transmitter on my son's #cgm is failing but was kind enough to kick in just for the nighttime hours the past two nights. Will we be so lucky tonight? Crossing my fingers... 🀞🏻

Fighting sleep, while I watch Parks & Recs... But I think a nap is gona happen.
Right next to my #smokalien, and my #dexcom... you know- my necessities of life! πŸ˜€πŸ–’

Lately Jack has been seeming so big. But those sweet #fingerdimples remind me that he is still my sweet baby Jack. #type1diabetes #t1dm #dexcom

Super dark 143 on my PDM in the back oops πŸ˜‚ I was very happy to see these close readings on my first day using Dexcom! So far I'm in love 😍

Finally starting to get my CGM to stay on longer than seven days πŸ™Œ Am I the only one who gets a weird rash and really bad itching after the CGM falls off ?

Today's blood sugar accountability shows exactly why I've chosen to go low carb. That spike happens 10 minutes after I ate my treat egg roll. Even with the correct insulin given. Now I'm going to fight to bring it back down :( #dexcom #animasvibe #keto #ketogenic #ketogenicdiet #weightloss #weightlossjourney #type1diabetes #hypothyroidism #goals #accountability #fitbit #myfitnesspal #LCHF

Yes yes yes yes yes!!!! There's such a stigma surrounding #diabetes. Every morning I wake up and rush to check my phone not to check Facebook but #Dexcom to make sure I didn't miss a alarm. To make sure my son is at a good level. Thanking God that he didn't fall into a coma from over night a low Or DKA from a kinked pump leading to high blood sugar. Aiden over comes the fear of needles and 8 to 10 finger pricks a day, sometimes he's trying to push through a bad level just to get thru the day as a normal kid, ignoring low blood sugar so he can climb to the top of a tree or beat his friend in a race, just to be a kid! I'm thankful that this is manageable but it's not easy and it sure as he'll ain't funny.

Look what just came in the mailπŸ“¬πŸ€— Now WE (aka: diabetes) are talkin'! Thank you @pumppeelz for letting me have some fun with my friend Diabetes!
