Who can relate to making stupid decisions on-line when you're drunk? 🙋🏼♀️ If your hand is up, my latest blog post is for you. ✌💙🚴🏼♀️

You don’t need to have all your shit together to be in a position to manage your diabetes competently & confidently. You don’t need to show up 100% all the time. You don’t need CGM, flash monitoring, access to the right websites, the best consultants.. YOU are enough. With all your flaws, anxieties, doubts, beliefs, commitments & junk!
All you need is purpose. Why wouldn’t you want to be healthy? Why wouldn’t you want to be the best version of you?
You have the same 24 hours in a day that we all have. The same chance every morning to make a difference, to be the difference.
Don’t wait for Monday, don’t wait for New Year, don’t wait for the next set-change or the next doctor’s appointment or the next HbA1c.. start now, today.
And if you’re struggling to do this on your own, in isolation, without support.. join a group, find a buddy, bring family & friends onboard, speak to your DSN, go to your GP, follow a blog, start a blog(!), keep a journal, find a coach you trust.
A coach will help you find that motivation, give you that accountability, follow up on your progress, celebrate your wins, pull you through your dark days, help you overcome your barriers, find what it is that’s holding you back.
Whatever works for you, find it. Your health & wellbeing should be your priority. Don’t let anything get in the way of that.
Hallo Ihr Lieben
Hier sind eure Dezember-Hosts @dieweltmitdiabetes
Passend zu unserem Monatsthema #gutewerte
haben wir uns überlegt wie subjektiv dieses Thema doch ist. Die Werte konstant im Zielbereich zu halten ist quasi unmöglich und eine gerade Linie sieht man auch nur selten. Je nach Tagesform und Umständen, gibt es Schwankungen und Ausschläge. Das muss aber nicht gleich negativ sein.
Um euch zu zeigen, dass kein Diabetiker perfekt ist, haben wir deshalb unsere Autoren gebeten uns ein Bild mit Ihrem persönlichen besten Blutzucker Tag der letzen Woche zu schicken.
Wie sah euer perfekter Tag in der letzen Woche aus?
Wir sind gespannt auf eure Kurven *NT

Who would think it was Summer in Australia 🤔? Well no matter what is going on here, it’s warm, yes we can’t see beyond or the bright blue 🌊 but it’s OK life continues. Here’s to those places that make you happy, this is mine. My mum grew up here now I’m growing up here. Here’s to tradition, happy places and just being in the moment #t1dlookslikeme #t1diabetesawarness
Ah, these nights are my favorite. Not only did another Dexcom sensor fail due to a severely bent sensor wire, but my boy has been running high (yes, very high, I admit) all day. I've given him an amazing amount of insulin and my heart nearly stopped when I woke up to a "no more data" alert due to the amount of insulin he had on board when I went to sleep! Thankfully but unfortunately he was still 373 and then I corrected him and changed his sensor at midnight. No ketones to speak of so I know his pod is working... He's been chomping his hands and fingers non stop so my money is on early 2 year molars?! Whatever the reason... This mommy is exhausted 🤔😴😴😴
Today would have been my Dad’s 70th birthday. He lived the example: grow where you are planted. As an Exploration Geophysicist in a large company, he ministered to many people simply by living a life that draws others closer to God. Miss you Dad.
Cupcakes and insulin go together like....cupcakes and insulin 💕 I will always be down to bolus for a cupcake! #cupcakesandinsulin
We are finally about to reduce our wait time! 🙌🏻
Our machines are in full swing and shipping out more orders than ever before. For those still waiting, be on the lookout for your holster very soon.
We were going to wait till Christmas break to make the switch to the #dexcomg6
but after a few days of her G5 sensor being spotty she came home from school and said let’s do it now. Reviews so far. The insertion was awesome. She said it didn’t hurt. The noise kinda made us both jump tho. Lol. After the two hour warm up not having to do to finger pokes to calibrate and it just starts giving readings was also awesome. It being new I won’t trust it fully until I know for sure but I’d say about half an hour into it working and it alerted her to a pending low and it was this accurate is also awesome!!! No more finger pokes here we come! #nomorepricks #dexcom #cgm #upgrade #makinglifeeasier #type1diabetes #t1d #type1life
New fave Dex spot. More towards the front of my arm and bicep. It doesn’t get ripped off when rolling over in my sleep, or reaching into the backseat of the car. More visible, but I really don’t care about visibility!

Highpoint Highlight: Humphrey’s Peak, the highest point in Arizona, sits at 12,637ft. Located just North of Flagstaff, the 10 mile out and back hike climbs 3,300 feet giving way to scenic views of the state. On a clear day you can even see the Grand Canyon! Interested in a challenging hike with us and located in Arizona? Comment or send us a message, we’ll be there around the 17th of July and love for you to join!
“Before [YWCA's Diabetes Wellness and Prevention Program], it was hard to do stuff. I would want to go on a walk but I’d feel like I had to sit down and rest before I could walk. And now I can walk a mile and a half just straight through. Before, I felt bad about myself. I felt like it was a time to change.” -Angel
If you or someone you love has type 2 diabetes or are at-risk, the YWCA of Asheville offers a life-changing journey: our Diabetes Wellness and Prevention Program.
Over the course of 7-1/2 months, participants and facilitators in YWCA’s Diabetes Wellness and Prevention Program explore the how and why of making healthy choices, develop valuable relationships with health professionals, and establish new friendships, all within a supportive community setting. Risk factors for type 2 diabetes include: sedentary lifestyle, obesity, insulin resistance, family history of diabetes, and chronic stress or sleep disturbance. Our program follows two evidence-based curricula, including Stanford University’s “Living Healthy with Diabetes” Diabetes Self-Management Program, and “Prevent T2” from the Center for Disease Control’s National Diabetes Prevention Program.
Our next day session begins January 16th, and evening sessions begin January 17th, 2019! Join today for an affordable (sliding scale) monthly fee. Membership to the YWCA Fitness and Aquatics Center is included with your registration! For more information or to register, contact YWCA’s Preventive Health Coordinator Leah Berger-Singer at 828.254.7206 or email email@example.com.
“I feel good because I’m eating food that is good for me and I’m working on my body. The DWP (Program) has saved my life… I’ll forever be thankful for the opportunity to have taken this class and would recommend it to anyone looking to work on bettering themselves and making healthier life choices.”

You guys!! Look at our little robot🤖! She has two gadgets on her belly and smiling through it all! Shoutout to @expressionmedtape
for having the CUTEST tapes for her Dexcom📟 and @pumppeelz
for the adorable sticker for her insulin pump! It’s the little things that make this a tad bit more manageable💉
I’d say she’s ready for Christmas🎄break to begin today!

As promised...the rumors are true.
Currently you can get @dexcom
for a very low price without insurance. $66 for two is what I paid.
Have your doctor write the prescription and take them in. Tell them you are paying cash, because I’m pretty sure if you run it through insurance you will pay your copay on the higher amount that’s usually charged.
I tried to get four but they wouldn’t let me because they expire within six months 🙄 Hopefully that pricing holds. It’s sure worth the price of a Costco membership once to get that kind of price! Unfortunately sensors are just as expensive, but this at least saves us a little money!
