I’m still trying to figure out where I like my tubing... point up, pointing down or heading out to the sides? It’s all fun and games with “Clarence the sugar daddy” - pump was named at the Orientation Banquet #heathydiet #diabetestype1 #diabeticpump
Yes...all it's ok . #wearingdabbee accessories for my diabetes

So this evening I was on a date and my pump decided to alert me and others around me that my pump needed changing in an hour 😂🙈 I was mortified but I casually brushed it off and said that it was an alarm on my phone. Since having my pump I have been so self conscious about meeting new people and going on dates but after 15 months of being single I finally plucked up the courage to go on a few dates this month 😂 Tonight’s being the most embarrassing with the alarm going off 😂🙈 The joys of dating when you’re a type 1 diabetic!! #reallife #dating #livingwithdiabetes #lifeofadiabetic #chronicillness #curediabetes #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #insulindependent #insulinpump #diabadass #diabetesuk #diabetesanddating #beyondt1d #diabetescommunity #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #type1life #t1dlife #t1dlookslikeme #type1warrior #diabetestype1 #diabetic #diabeticpump #omnipod #omnipodder #omnipodinsulinpump #typeonediabetes #typeonediabetic #typeonelife

So excited for these incredibly fun skins! I can’t wait to get them on my sensor and pump! It may seem small to those who do not have diabetes- but something like this totally makes my day! I have to have things attached to my body, I may as well make them fun and exciting for me! Thanks so much @etcgang for these awesome prints and designs! Your helping to make diabetes feel pretty and cool all at the same time! • • • #theotherdiabeticgirl #diabeticgirl #diabetic #sensor #freestyle #freestylelibre #pump #diabeticpump #metronic #medtronicpump
FIRST OF ALL.....Don’t ask me shit about it after seeing this post stay theeeeee fuck out of my DM’s. This to me shows sincerity, care, and curiosity especially if you’ve been following me for quite sometime I mean hell its in my bio. Wanting to get close to me you have to be built stronger than me and being able to handle the past almost 20 years of my low blood sugars, my high blood sugars, my insulin, my devices yes my two way and my charger. On top of my not being able to control my reactions when my sugar drops to a level to which I can’t even hold my own head up. Don’t trip though shove some sugar down my throat and some juice and I’ll be back as if you were the one who was tripping. Don’t take it personal. The sugars are a mf. There’s a lot that goes into this bitch ass disease, but I deal with it the best way I can. Apparently God saw fit for me to still have this crap after being told I wasn’t going to make it past 12 after being skin and ribs at the age of 10. Bitch ass diabetes suck my dick I’m almost 30 hoe and I’m still wit the shits. I used to feel sorry for myself but I’m still winning and 2 stepping in my 6 inch heels 👠 with my 2 way on my hip. Love me and my beautiful flaws or jump off a cliff with a broken parachute. 💉😍😩😂😘 #diabetic #diabetes #beautifulflaws #wearingitwell #diabeticpump #insulin #flyasfuck #dope #tatted #proud #health #healthylifestyle #countingcarbs #lovingmyself #inspiteof #beautifulscars

Into the tube... . #wearingdabbee accessories for my diabetes
I was so thankful to wake up on a blood sugar of 5.0 after going to bed on 14.8 😐 For breakfast I had an apple, lunch was a cheese and ham toastie. Snack was a white chocolate chip cookie. Dinner was a chicken pie, broccoli and cheesy croquettes 👌🏽#lifeofadiabetic #omnipod #carbcounting #diabadass #livingwithdiabetes #lifesavingdevice #diabetic #diabetes #diabetes1 #diabetic1 #diabeticlife #diabeticpump #diabeticgirl #diabetics #diabeticproblems #diabeticfriendly #diabetictype1 #diabetesuk #diabeteslife #insulinpump #insulindependent #invisibleillness #t1 #t1d #teamjdrf #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #abbottglobal #freestylelibre #freestylelibreabbott

On holiday with me . #wearingdabbee accessories for my diabetes
Well this was fun 🙄 Bolused for breakfast and went sky high... tried to correct more and still didn't come down... then realised there were bubbles in my tube so I obviously wasn't getting my insulin in properly. My set had only been in for 2 days and there were no bubbles when I put it in but today there appeared to be loads. Does anyone know if it's common for heat to make bubbles form in the insulin? #diabetes #diabetic #diabeticpump #pum p #insulinpump #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #type1 #t1d #diabetesmellitus #cgm #continuousglucosemonitor #dexcom #g6 #dexcomg6 #heatwave #heat #hot #insulin
Daily comfort... . #wearingdabbee accessories for my diabetes
good morning everyone! bg is 140 and it’s steady!!!! the only disadvantage to the pump so far is the sensor because the tape around it keeps peeling and that’s causing the sensor to lift up a little which gives a more inaccurate reading :/ anyways may today be filled with smiles and good bloodsugars! #dexcomchange #medtronic670g #iphone8plus #insulindependentdiabetic #insulindependent #minimed #diabetes #diabeticpump #cgm

This week has been crazy. My graduate collection was showed at Graduate Fashion Week in London and I wanted to share with you all the final outcomes! Many of you already know but this community of type ones has been a huge inspiration to me and my work and I have created garments using recycled insulin tubes from numerous people and their pumps. I can’t thank the guys enough that have shared my shout outs for tubing and supported me through my collection process. Thanks especially to @lunar_lapin @t1d_supergirl @dextralie @nickers94 @laurajanebull @_lindsaydaviessx @that.diabetic.life @poppytype1 @miaaaaa.w @christygen @millyclaxton @medtronicdiabetes who have sent me tubing, they’ve all been used on my clothing in some way and I’m so so grateful! It has meant so much more to have a community of people contribute to my work (My inbox got wiped and the last few weeks have been mental so If I’ve missed you please message me as I’d hate to not include you in this post ❤️)! . . A few years ago i would never have even set up a diabetes related instagram and I can’t express how much you have all helped me maybe without even knowing it. ❤️ Please follow @beckyysian if you want to see more! . . #type1diabetes #t1dawareness #t1dlookslikeme #t1d #diabetes #diabetesproblems #diabeticproblems #diabeticawareness #typeonediabetic #typeonestrong #insulinpump #diabeticpump #pumplife #medtronic640g #insulindependent #typeonelookslikeme #t1dlookslikeme #diabetes #diabeticclothing

One day you won’t want to hold my hand. One day you’ll say you hate me. One day you’ll cry because you think I’m being unfair. One day you won’t want my help. One day I’ll embarrass you. One day you’ll be a a grown up. One day you’ll be a mother to your own child... but for today you still hold my hand and make sure you’re never too far away. I cherish these days. I cherish you, for you will always be my baby girl. You might not always need me, but I’ll always need you. (that’s my diabetes pump on my arm) #typeonediabetic #omnipod #diabeticpump
good morning everyone! so my blood sugar is still plummeting at random times and it gets really inconvenient when I have a band concert!!! i’ve tried a couple of the methods some of you guys have recommended but they didn’t really work🙁 any other ideas???

Last night I was coming back from a lovely night out with @sasandyosh and I tapped on instagram as ya do and started reading @bowelbabe s recent post about people being down right mean. “Glamorising Cancer” was the words that got me. I’ve heard this before with @lobellaloves_jo and “glamorising depression “ it just simply isn’t true and am asking and urging us all to be supportive towards anyone who are opening up about their illness to create awareness and conversations. I talk about my diabetes in an attempt to educate and inform people of what it’s like to live with this disease. I have been very open and honest about it , but at the end of the day we won’t let a disease stop us from feeling our best. Here I am with my pump that is permanently attached to my body . I’m so aware of what I wear and whether it’s going to fall out. It’s a huge part of my life. To all the haters, please think before you comment or DM someone with hurtful words. Maybe it’s best just to let your opinion stay with you. Shout out to @panicthemother @thatmumwithcancer who are a few more awesome babes. . . . #diabetes #type1diabetes #diabeticpump #deppression #cancerawareness #mentalhealthawareness #haters #educating #floral #pump

Ok, so today, I received some of the best news I’ve had in a long time. I am finally going to get a diabetic pump! 🙆🏼‍♀️ (this is big news for a type 1 diabetic). It is totally going to change my lifestyle and the way I feel within myself, whilst keeping my blood sugar levels stable due to having more control. There are also other HUGE bonuses which include: . . 👍🏼 Fewer injections - I don’t mind doing them...I mean, I’m used to it after 11 years but it’ll be a nice change going forwards. . . 👍🏼 The settings on the pump are instantly adjustable to allow for unexpected/unplanned exercise (super important for me with my job and teaching classes/working out, etc!) . . 👍🏼 The way in which the pump works helps reduce the risk of post exercise hypoglycaemia - this is excellent news and something I have to deal with A LOT and it’s one of my least favourite things about having diabetes - this basically means, my blood sugar levels won’t drop after exercise and I won’t need to have any sugar to bring it back up as it will be well controlled throughout. . . 👍🏼 The pump provides small amounts of rapid acting insulin during the day and night, meaning that my blood sugar levels won’t shoot up during the night making me gag for water and need a wee! (Very much a pain having this issue every night). This also means I won’t wake up sluggish every morning due to high blood sugars - which is the worst start to an early shift. . . 👍🏼 I can actually eat whenever I want in the evening without it raising my blood sugars right through the night and I can rest assured that it’ll be constantly correcting my doses without the need for injecting. . . . There are so many good things about the pump, the above just being a few of them. I’ve worked really hard over the past year perfecting my carb counting, attending several appointments (with my fave diabetic nurse 💕) and this will just be the icing on the cake! It may not seem like a big deal to someone who isn’t diabetic but this is really life changing for me! #diabetes #diabetic #diabetestype1 #diabeticpump #lifestyle #change #happy
So if you couldn’t tell by the first picture I have an insulin pump! I currently use the Accu Check Avivia Combo and this pump has worked great for me! Sadly, the Accu Check brand is no longer a available and Medtronic is soon going to stop supporting my pump. I guess you can say i’m in the boat to buy a new pump! Any suggestion?! #diabetes #insulindependent #diabeticpump #diabeticproblems #insulinpump #accucheck #medtronic #CGM #halfmachine #bionicpancreas #illness #lifetime #fitness #needles #pumpprobs #pumpproblems #diabetescommunity #typeone #typetwo #type1diabetes #typetwodiabetes #typenone
It’s 12:45am and Diabetes does not have time off. Nevaeh’s pump site needed to be changed early because she kept going higher and higher. We are thinking she needs a new site spot and if anyone (or you know anyone please tag them) knows a better spot than the bum please let me know. Vay doesn’t love change so I know this will be hard but her pump site should last 3 days and her site is lasting about a full 2. Maybe some people change it every 2 days and that works too 🤷🏼‍♀️ #t1dlookslikeme #t1d #diabeticpump #typeonemom #helpwanted #t1dyoudontsee
Diabetic Pump Report …… I’ve had my diabetic pump for around 4 weeks now. Thought I would share with you all how it was going. Want to firstly thanks those who have DM’d me with your encouragement. It really does mean a lot. So after the epic fail of doing a live to show how easy it was to attach it to my body. Then the equipment broke and I had to call my diabetic nurse crying my eyes out . I went in the next day to collect more tubing and cannulas so that was all fixed. I’ve pulled out the cannula whilst pulling down my pants ( to use the bathroom, cheeky) I woke up in the night and It had come out. I went to a restaurant / night out and it fell out. Sooo...... I’m trying to remember why I got this thing in the first place. Ok so ... positives.... my correction dose is more accurate, I’m checking my levels a lot more than I used to. I don’t rummage in my bag looking for needles or have a bag full of used ones rattling at the bottom. I can’t tell you if I’m happier, it’s not a life changer it’s just different. In some ways I miss the injections because it was easier to forget, but I need reminding and I need to look after myself. Hopefully the next time I write about it I can be a bit more positive. #diabeticpump #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #livingwithdiabetes #diabetic #type1 #kitchendesign #industrialkitchen #t1d #diabetesawareness
2 years ago 💔 vs 2 days ago ♥️ how time flies when you’re having fun! Just remember how good life is after recovery guys, it’s worth every single tear, anxiety attack, horrible thought. LIFE IS SWEET 🌈
THIS! IS! SO! IMPORTANT! I unfortunately know a few people who portray themselves as happy and 100% ok all the time and it makes me so so sad to see. We are not perfect, it’s ok to be human and show emotions. Allow yourself to be HUMAN. Not a robot ♥️ life isn’t all Hawaii beaches 🌱
My fave meal combo recently ♥️ you all should know by now how much I love salads and I literally have one everyday! This is so simple and only tomato tofu with falafels and salad, beetroot and spring onions! I top it with a little hummus and tomato chutney and 👌 I used to HATE tofu but now I can’t get enough! Especially this tomato tofu and smoked! ♥️
YUMMIEST brunch in a long time! Last morning in Scotland before heading home later this evening 💔 I’m back to work tomorrow and I get to see my friends who I’ve missed SO MUCH! And it’s also this time off has made me realise how much I miss and love my new job! 🤗 im so grateful for everything and everyone in my life atm and I’m super super happy ✨i can’t wait to get home ✨♥️

Dreeeeamy food at @13th_note 👌 flying back home tomorrow and I’m sad to be leaving but I miss Home, my friends and work hahahah ♥️ hope you’re all well and enjoying life ✨
Dreamy creamy oat milk lattes from @hulajuicebar this morning ♥️ mum and I are having so much fun in Scotland and we’re on the look out for a vegan roast dinner for our lunch tomorrow! So if anyone knows please hit me up! 👋🏻 thank you for all the birthday messages yesterday, I had the loveliest day filled with so much yum vegan food and shopping 😏 lots of love to you all ♥️♥️🌈
Happy 21st birthday to me 🌈
FINALLY arrived in Glasgow ✈️ mum and I have been up since 4.30am and we both haven’t eaten until now so it’s safe to say all the words that were said when I was HANGRY 😂 I’m so excited for my bday tomorrow 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
Dinner last night was 👌 falafel burger without the bun because bread messes with my blood sugars and sweet potato fries 🍠 🍟 is that only orange juice in my glass or does it have a cheeky bit of vodka in it 😂 this was all followed by some birthday cake, more alcohol and dancing the night away to celebrate my 21st on Friday!💃🏻 I’m off to Scotland tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited 🌈
Sorry not sorry for posting more personal photos but I have so much love for this girl. I’ve only known her for a short amount of time but she has taught me more than some people I’ve known for life. She’s the reason I haven’t had panic attacks or anxiety attacks for 3 months, the reason I’ve been socialising, the reason I’m happy with my body, the reason why I’m happy with life and my mentality has changed for the good. If you ever find a best friend like @alina.lillian.dunworth don’t ever let them go.
My early birthday cake ♥️ banoffee Gluten free cake 🎂 first time in 4 years having a birthday, simply because I didn’t want one because I was scared due to my eating disorder. So this year is the year I say “FU” 🖕🏼I love you @karenlapsley , you mean the world to me ♥️ made by the amazing @little_beebakery
Happy Easter my beaut lil bunnies 🐰 showing off my new tat 😉I’ve spent my day at @romseyveganfaireasterbonanza with my Mumma and bestie eating lots of vegan samples, buying raw brownies, eating too much chocolate and just having SO MUCH FUN! I went out last night for a lil boogie so I’m feeling suuuuper tired today, I’ve taken myself to my room to zone out from the world and just listen to my fave chill band @iamnovoamor using my incredible wireless @sudio headphones ♥️ I have the “TRE” and these are the most amazing pair of headphones I’ve EVER owned and I’ve gone though a lot! I used them the other day when I went on a run and couldn’t believe how long I’d waited to get my hands on them! If any of you would like to buy some I have a 15% discount code - EARTHLING_EM 🌈✨ thank you @sudio #sudio #sudiomoments for creating such incredible headphones ✨
NEW TATTOOO! I got this done yesterday and couldn’t be happier ✨ my blood sugars throughout the whole 2 hour session were dropping low and my dexcom alarm was going OFF 😂 being diabetic we have to take extra care of our bodies and the healing process of cuts and bruises and especially tattoos to make sure our bodies heal properly! I’ve never ever had any problem with the other 8 tattoos I’ve had but would loooove to do a blog post/ post in general about the healing process and tips for tattoos and type 1’s ♥️🌈🦕
Heeeey guys! I took a very short 3 day break from this Instagram just to focus on life outside of my phone! Spent time at work, with friends and by myself just chilling to music. Sometimes I find this account does more damage than good to me and o get a little overwhelmed so the break was needed! I’m going to stop focusing on myself now and more with others too. Im getting another large tattoo today as an early bday present and I’m off on a short break to Scotland at the beginning of April for my 21st and I’m SO EXCITED🤗🌈✨ anyway, hope you all have an amazing day and I’m so scoter to share with you all the exciting posts and events I have coming up♥️
find yourself a friend who will get matching tattoos with you ♥️ @alina.lillian.dunworth ♥️
This is such a huge moment for me. I’m finally getting rid of my size 0 to 4 clothing and I’ve never been so emotional. I’m literally shaking as I type this because I’m so fucking proud of myself. It’s been a year since I would fit into a size 0 clothing and I’ve always held onto my clothing with the fucked up mind set of “what if” I loose weight again and I can fit into them. Today I’m chucking them all out. Selling them. Just GET OUT OF MY LIFE. I’m in such a high with life, my mindset and everything and will NOT allow a clothing size to define me. FUCK you eating disorders and a stupid mentality. IM SO HAPPY AND NOTHING CAN STOP THIS.
Two pics of me in a row...✨ yesterday was such a “rebel” day. I got a new tattoo, a new piercing, buying clothes I didn’t need, dying my hair purple 😈 and just having so much fun! I’m also obsessed with me new T-shirt, it says VEGAN with a cute dinosaur 🦕 hope you all have an amazing day ♥️
From one extreme to another. Can’t get my blood sugar to stay up now 😐😬 I persisted with my pump earlier and it did manage to come down to 6.4. It was then time for a pump change at 8pm. This evening I went to a Turkish restaurant in London. It was absolutely amazing!! I had a huge bowl of creamy chicken pasta with spinach and mozzarella. I gave 7 units for it due to the size of the bowl and I thought there may have been carbs in the sauce. After the meal I power walked back to the train station this resulted in me dropping into the twos. I’ve been low for an hour now 😐😩 I’ve been wearing my pump on my back for weeks now and I absolutely love it!! #livingwithdiabetes #lifeofadiabetic #chronicillness #curediabetes #diabetes #diabetesawareness #diabetestype1 #diabetesproblems #diabetesuk #abbottglobal #freestylelibre #freestylelibreabbott #diabeticgirl #diabetic #diabeticpump #insulinpump #invisibleillness #insulindependent #omnipod #omnipodder #omnipodinsulinpump #omnipodsquad #omnipods #type1diabetes #type1diabetic #typeonediabetes #typeonediabetic #t1dlookslikeme #typeone #t1diabetes
