sometimes you gotta spice things up like using @pumppeelz to decorate you're diabetes technology #dexcomcgm #verioiq #tandemtslim #type1diabetes #lifeisbetterincolor

Amazing southern cooking. No apologies. Birthday, out of town conference (excuses). So delish. So much insulin.

#mewithd #tandemtslim

Even on my worst day I throw a smile on and thank god for my two biggest fans (my dexcom G5 and my tandem tslim) I don't know what I would do without them lately.
I struggle through a lot of things on a daily basis and my diabetes tops the list most often but I'm not letting it hold me down anymore. #typeonestrong #typeonediabetes #typeonewilltravel #dexcomg5 #tandemtslim #insulinpumptherapy #cgm #eachdayisalessonlearned #tangirl #summer2017 #stillfeelpale #tandeminthewild

Went to plug my pump and and found this little stowaway. #theyareeverywhere

Thanks to the food trucks and beer tent, we are fed and hydrated. Now for some Lifespeed!

This may not look like much, but to me it's a lifesaver. This is my NEW insulin pump! I have been waiting for this baby for a long time. Here's to hoping his helps me get back on track! #tandemtslim #type1diabetes

This is poopTastic proof positive that (although I'm thankful for the #T1D technology) sometimes insulin infusion site insertions do.not.work. Almost five hours ago I changed my site, including a new cartridge with insulin. Since then my blood glucose levels have run a steady high trend no.matter how much insulin I administered for correction boluses. So, I yanked out the new insertion (the canula/port where I insert my insulin pump tubing), & rather than a bent canula, it looked straight and fine. <-- This process is superFrustrating for a few reasons:

__1. Now my infusion set & cartridge/tubing set counts do.not.match. And over the course of three months I'll have to wear an infusion site for two cartridge changes -- double the FDA approved time. Insurance does not let Type1s have extra bits and pieces.

__2. It's hard to know if blood glucose is trending high because of tubing or insertion issues...or the stress caused from the higher trend after a site change.

__3. If I administer a correction bolus with a syringe, it'll be a sure fix (most likely!) BUT I won't know if my technology is going to kick in and do it's thing until I let some time go by.

__4. That bit I pulled out, that bit that looked normal, costs a lot of money. I tossed it into the trash. Had.To.

__5. High blood glucose trends that last more than an hour are crapTastic as lethargy, thirst, hunger (but dude, you cannot eat because you don't know what's causing the increase in blood sugar and adding more foodFuel will.not.help.), & frustration settle in.

__5. My family is eating dinner. I am not. I cannot. I have to wait for my numbers to come down. (And, by the way, there must've been something wrong with that infusion canula because my numbers are coming down with a new one and more insulin. Thank heavens!) _____________________________________
This is a glimpse into an oftentimes overlooked frustration of Type 1 life.

Site change and starting back up the Dexcom. #tandemtslim #tslimpump #tslimx2 #typeone #type1diabetes #diabetic #dexcom #dexcomg5

Starting chapter 21 in life with my twin by my side. Today was a great day. I started wearing my tslim insulin pump, I got a call saying I get a Dexcom, I got to see my mom and older sister, and I had my first legal drink. #tandemtslim #typeone #type1diabetes #21birthday #diabetic #diabetesawareness #diabetes #birthday #july13

Well, getting ready to start back on the pump after taking a pump break and doing injections for over a year. The good thing about it is that if I'm not getting good results, I can always go back to injections! I already do really well with injections, but I'm just wanting a little change, and it's so easy to just put in the carbs I eat and it gives me insulin. With injections, it's hard to get 2 and a HALF units on a syringe! Now if I could just get this thing to charge faster!!

The most important thing I've learned about my well-being is that my mind and body are in constant communication and the second I get out of alignment and stop taking care of my mental or physical health, everything falls apart. *

Inflammation is a hell of a thing. For me, it gets triggered by my not sleeping enough, not drinking enough water, not sweating enough - hard exercise is key for my brain chemicals to balance out and to get toxins cycled out of my system, eating food that I know my system doesn't process well (dairy, gluten, sugar, processed food in general), trying to do too much and paying attention to too many things, and not keeping up with the basic writing and meditation routines that keep my brain calm.
*

In turn, I get super puffy and hold on to weight like crazy, anxiety and depression become major issues, I get overwhelmed and agitated by eeeeeeeverything, I have a hard time focusing, my blood sugar levels get wild and hard to control, I end up exhausted and then the pain flares start coming up.
*

What's really crazy to me, though, is that I know a lot of people live in this state 24/7. They think that's just life. That getting older means being stressed and tired and gaining weight. But that's not at all true - it's just an indication that taking care of ourselves isn't a priority in our society. *

We have to carve out space and hold on to it fiercely - the space to take care of ourselves and not let other people's judgements affect what we know is best for us. It can be particularly tough when you feel like you're letting people down by having to slow it down. You have to somehow get okay with that.
*

But know that it's fine to take a step back. Wellness perfection just isn't a thing and I think we all have to hit that reset button often, but understand that it's important to hit it as SOON as you realize things are off. We all get there. It is what it is. And that's okay.

My usual step goal is 6500. Went to an outdoor mall and when shopping today. Who woulda thunk shopping would get me past 10k steps?!? 🤣 #type1diabetes #fitbit #fitbitflex #diabadass #dexcom #dexcomg4platinum #tandem #tandemtslim #diabetesawarness #t1dwarrior #t1dlookslikeme #t1dpride

White rice kills me every time. I don't know why I continue to eat it. Anyone have any tips for preventing this??? Other than not eating it... #hyperglycemia #tandem #tandemtslim #type1diabetes #lovehatewhiterice #dexcom #dexcomg4platinum

Any word on when they are updating the X2 software to include and integrate the Dexcom G5? I CANT WAIT 🎉🙋🏼💙 The technology we get to treat diabetes blows my mind everyday
