Diaversary!!!

Happy 17th Diaversary to me!!! If you don’t know, a diaversary is the anniversary of a diabetes diagnoses. On March 11, 1995 when I was 7 years old I was told I have Type 1 Diabetes.

I was going to do this whole big post on my diagnoses story and this & that but that seems…eh not so fun. So I wanted to make a list of things my diabetes hasn’t stopped me from doing:

  • Flying in a plane
  • Being in Marching Band (band geek whoo!!!)
  • Dating
  • Learning French (not that I have anyone to talk to)
  • Graduating with Honors
  • Horseback Riding
  • Going to Disney, & Universal, & visiting my Florida family
  • Going on a cruise
  • Going out with friends
  • Camping
  • Dancing around like a fool every chance I get
  • Going to my first live baseball game
  • Running two 5k’s
  • Getting Married
  • Buying my first home
  • Getting a dog
  • Going to Merlefest
  • Going to Williamsburg, VA
  • Getting pregnant (♥)

So I left a lot of things out & it’s not exactly in order but hey, it shows that over the last 17 years I’ve not let me diabetes define my life. Yes it’s a big part but it’s not the only part.

Here’s to another 17 years (& many more) with my rude, unwilling to contribute pancreas. 17 more years of changes & upgrades in diabetes care and management. But mostly, 17 more years of living life to the fullest, with my husband at my side, & a whole bunch of babies!!!

Welcome back Dexy!

So I’ve not been using my Dexcom for months now!!! Ugh, I know right. So today I finally put Dexy back on the charger & ordered more sensors, much to the delight of my deductible! I’ve not really been using it because Luke got a hold of it & did a number on the poor guy.  Still works fine, just doesn’t look so good & who knows how long it’ll last.

Luckily, I’m still under warranty so I can get a new one for a cool $200.  I’ll probably break down & get it soon…just not right after I’ve spent about $700 on pump supplies and sensors that will lovingly fill my deductible up.  Whew, at least I got it done early.

So I’m SUPER excited to be using the Dex again because I know that my A1C is way up.  I’m just now coming off the burnout after my miscarriage & am ready to take care of myself & get back on top of things.  Like tonight for dinner, instead of going out or getting fast food I actually cooked 🙂 & from start to finish, no help from the hubby.  I made a lemon/herb chicken with cucumbers & steamed veggies. So yay for good food choices tonight.

Hopefully it’ll last into tomorrow and I can get the momentum rolling and get the taking care of myself back on top of the priority list.

Just a short one today I know.  I promise to get back into the blogging groove now that the rest of my life seems to slowly be falling back into place.  I’ll leave you with a picture of the pup 🙂

My new favorite t-shirt

I think it speaks for itself 🙂

This is one of the many shirts you can find here at the ‘Diabetees’ store. There were definitely some I really liked but this one has to be my favorite!
