It’s just weird…

On January 6, 2014 By

We accept it because it is part of the world we’ve been thrown into.

Some of us, myself included, are even thankful. Being able to measure it instead of how things used to be is a huge improvement.

The Protection Genes?

On January 3, 2014 By

I had my diabetic eye exam yesterday.

Nearly 34 years of type 1 diabetes and the doctor said he couldn’t see any sign of diabetes. Not a thing. Whew… I’d been given news of another year (actually two years since my last visit) without a complication from diabetes.

Were you interested in the 14th North American Conference in Diabetes and Exercise that took place in August but couldn’t afford the hundreds of dollars for travel, lodging, registration, and accompanying expenses? I totally feel you, and so do the incredibly generous Corporate Members of Continue Reading

I Wear Medical ID

On November 4, 2013 By

I wear medical ID.

It’s something I feel strongly about, and worry over when I don’t have on.

Most of the time I wear a bracelet and necklace, and also have stickers on my car. You might say I’m a bit paranoid about it. I would say Continue Reading

It’s my honor (or “honour” as they might say up north… is that a bad Canadian joke?) to present a guest post by Jen Hansen  from Connected in Motion!

What is the special occasion? Slipstream is coming to the United States, October 25-27, 2013! [...]
