Do you have 2 minutes?πŸ•œ Because I really need YOUR help!! When we stand together we are stronger πŸ’ͺ Millions of people around the world 🌎 have Type 1 diabetes or are a family member of someone, πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦ or is someone's friend πŸ‘¨πŸ‘§ who is a Type 1 diabetic. #INSULIN is the lifesaving medication for us BUT the price of it keeps increasing!! 😲 In fact it nearly tripled between 2002 and 2013. 🀀 We NEED this to live!! Did you know some families have to choose between other necessities and their insulin? πŸ’‰ This is SO wrong. But you can help! πŸ‘‰ Follow the link at the top of my profile and stand with me πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹ and speak up πŸ—£ for affordable insulin πŸ’‰ We are stronger together!!! πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­

Repost from @bassgiraffe. With all the talk of the new Unicorn Frap from @starbucks causing diabetes, remember that sugar does NOT cause diabetes and people with diabetes CAN drink it as long as they have insulin. Did you know the same size cup of orange juice has just about the same about if sugar! #knowthefacts #thisisnotdiabetes #thisisdiabetes #starbucks #diabetesinacup #unicornfrappuccino #t1diabetes #t1diabetesawareness

Triathlon baby, it's been a while!πŸ˜† 1.5km swim, 40km cycle, 10km run.
Blood sugars showed me some flames thoughπŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ With high sugars out of nowhere after the swim, I held back on eating anything, patiently waiting for my sugars to drop during my cycle πŸ€”πŸ™ˆ.
I even had insulin in my transitionπŸ’‰ but the sugars wouldn't budge, persistently lurking between 12Β  to 15 mmol/l.πŸ“ˆ Spiking and slowly reducing.
I hoped that the run would get them down⬇ but My Dexcom joyfully vibrated against my back during the run to remind me how high I was! πŸ˜‚
It was a mental challenge of note. πŸ˜₯
Adrenaline and nerves were the spiking culprits for yesterday's hiccupsπŸŠπŸš²πŸƒ. The race environment is so different to training!
The triathlon was fuelled by 1 bottle of water, and many thoughts of other T1'sΒ  that inspire me everyday! Always grateful for this community! πŸ˜†
Plus! These two cool cats creamed their first ever triathlon!😎

I. Am. Me. πŸ’¬ #justagirlLIVINGwithT1D

Drink it...don't drink---I don't really care. But don't use Diabetes as the punchline to your joke. Or tag it with a picture of your drink.
Tell me, how I should explain to my kids that some people think it's funny to joke about this serious disease that they watch their little sister battle every minute of the day?
Tell me, what should I tell my 4 yr old with Type One Diabetes when she hears people make jokes about her disease that she battles constantly?
People don't make jokes about cancer, why is this any different? Change the stereotype so these T1 kids don't have to grow up surrounded by this ignorance. .

I've been on an extremely low carb diet (< 30g a day) for about 3 weeks now and my sugars have been golden because of it. But yesterday they spiked and have been consistently high for over a day now. Changed my site, have corrected a bunch, but no matter what I do it won't budge 😒 I'm so frustrated and irritable - I've forgotten what an impact a high sugar can have on my mood. There's a few units of insulin on board, so fingers crossed this arrow starts pointing down soon.

Went to prom this past Saturday...spot the pod!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and for anyone who may feel self conscious about your pod or pump, DONT it is a part of you and you will ROCK IT #omnipod#typeonediabetic#typeonediabetes#t1d

This is the kind of pre-dinner numbers I like to see! #goodnumbers make it so much easier to feel confident about choosing dinner, especially when we cheat and go out!!

I baked the bread; my husband surprised me with this delicious cheese plate. 😍 #type1life #t1d #bread

tomorrow I see my dermatologist & he will continue to prescribe me post site steroid cream & continue to be absolutely useless with the whole figuring out how to deal with an allergy to the chemicals in adhesive that doesn't require stopping my use of necessary medical devices SPOILER ALERT: he won't have an answer & I will continue to itch my burning skin πŸ™ƒ ps: I am so grateful for the barrage of reccs I will probably receive but when I say I'm allergic to chemicals in adhesive - a 70+ allergen test proves I genuinely am. No barrier wipe, cream, spray, or grif grip / tegaderm combo is going to negate that, they will just make my skin worse & more susceptible to infection (unfortunate true story)

Major Crank. Fatigued. My face burns and my eyes feel dry.
What are your high symptoms?

Another season started and the little man is ready to play ball!!!! ⚾️

Up to my last box of Novo Rapid! It's been a year and a half and I'm still on my first batch of insulin πŸ˜‚ I have a new pen to use now so I'll be getting the little bottles instead of the disposable pens. Isn't it funny the things we get excited for 😜😜

Well this week escalated quickly.
It all started with fighting off a simple virus. I felt the soar throat for a few days, then got fever, then got endometriosis flare up, then the virus hit, then the virus caused me to have a plethora of diabetic ketones, which then led me to severe dizzy spells and weakness, which then led me to the most severe abdominal pain I've ever had, which I just found out was most likely me passing gallstones.
In conclusion, I am now scheduled for diagnostic tests to examine my liver and gallbladder to see if there is potential blockages which may end up in the removal of my gallbladder, via surgery.
For one thing, I am quite glad I did not go on my trip out of the country.
And secondly, How in the world did this happen to my body!? It baffles me honestly, I was progressively healing in January and February. And then something just triggered the fall of my body the last few months.
I honestly am so confused as to why this is all occurring and the timing of it.
I turn 26 in May and to have all of this going down before my insurance expires is quite nerve wracking. It took me years to find my doctors who know what they are doing, and now because of some law I will be off of my parent's health insurance, forcing me to get less coverage and possible loss of my incredible doctors who are currently treating me.
While all in the midst of possible organ removal surgery.
To say I am overwhelmed is an understatement.
I literally feel helpless. I've done everything I can and will continue to fight for my health. But at this point. I am desperate for a miracle.
Right now, my body needs a miraculous healing. Right now, my mind needs to be relieved from stress and daily battles, right now, my heart needs to be lifted from carrying this heavy weight of disease and pain. And right now, my body needs peace. There is a war going on inside my body.
My hands are completely wide open to receive ANYTHING that God has for me in this season of suffering.
I'm completely surrendered and grounded in my faith in God.
I am being faced with fears daily, anxieties daily, battles daily, and I can't conquer it alone. πŸ‘‡πŸΌCont. below ...

After more than 219 210 units of injected insulin,
More than 36 535 shots (without considering blood shots for my blood sugar),
More than 60 blood tests (cholesterol, hemoglobin, hormones...) and endocrinologist appointments...
After 20 years living with diabetes, living with drastic highs and lows...
I am proud to say that I am 1 human being that still lives strong today despite my chronic disease.

UPDATE: We are home :) a huge THANK YOU to everyone for your well wishes. Ketones are down to .3 woo hooo!!! We caught it early enough that levels were just beginning stages of DKA and the large bolus stopped it. Gave her some meds to stop the nausea/throwing and she was able to eat and get some insulin into her body therefor lowering ketones (feels like I'm back in math class with all of the factors involved in getting her back to normal levels) thank you to the amazing team of Emergnecy Doctors and the Endo team for taking such good care of Mae. We are lucky to live where we live! #charlieandmae #giveback #courage #t1d #adayinthelife #ketones #typeone #typeonediabetic #typeonediabetes #medtronic #cgm #dexcom #insulin #insulindependent #insulinpump #t1dmom #t1dstrong #t1diabetes #t1diabetic #t1dlookslikeme #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #bostonchildrenshospital
