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 ‘beetus doesn’t like stomach bugs

Aaron & I always laugh at those Wilford Brimley commercials where he talks about his ‘dia-beet-us’!! It drives me crazy (the kind of crazy where I roll my eyes but still giggle a little). Like when my cousin still asks me if I’ve taken my ‘sugar pill’ no matter how many times I’ve told her I’m on insulin. Haha!

This weekend I remembered how much my ‘beetus does NOT like it when I’m sick. My numbers were rollercoaster-ing all weekend & I”m still having some trouble honing them in.

Being sick with diabetes is so much more work. If I’m nauseous I have to think ‘is it the high blood sugar or the bug?’ If I have crackers & sprite I have to think ‘should I do a full bolus? what if i puke later?’ Ugh!!  But that’s why I haven’t posted in a few days. ‘Beetus & I were fighting the stomach bug that seems to be going around our little town.

All is better now though!!! 🙂 & I have some good news:

My letter to the editor that I wrote about Diabetes Awareness Month & World Diabetes Day ran in our local paper yesterday!! I’m not sure about the title they gave it but I digress. You can read my letter here!!  I’m so excited, I know it’s not much but it’s still helping to raise awareness about Diabetes & some of the things going on this month.

I also got my postcard out in the mail for the World Diabetes Day Postcard Exchange.

Had to represent good ol’ NC bay-bay!!! 🙂 Can’t wait to receive mine in the mail hopefully soon!!!

Never in my life have I been so involved in the Diabetes Community & I really wish I would have started sooner. I’m meeting a ton of great new people, getting a lot of support from people who know what I’m going through, & really feeling like I’m making a difference.  Even if it’s just a small one.

It’s time for me to show my diabetes whose boss.  I’m in control of this disease not the other way around.  I can show others & myself that diabetes doesn’t always have to be bad.

It appears all the bones, walking, playing with ropes & squeaky balls have left Luke in a ‘oh isn’t life as a dog hard’ pose. Because we don’t spoil him at all you know.  😉
