Diabetes and Me


I'm Sarah. Kicking diabetes' ass since 1993. Or it's kicking me. Some days, I'm not really sure.

Feel free to send me a message about anything, whether it's asking, complaining, explaining or whatever. You're more than welcome.

No prejudice, No stigma please!

  • T1 diabetes is an auto immune disease which means body’s own immune system attacks itself
  • What  causes this attack is not yet known
  • Even new born babies can get this horrible disease
  • It is chronic so people need to live with it all their lives
  • Injections are a daily part of our lives
  • No cure to date
  • It is on the rise
  • Affects and kills millions of people each year

So think again, do you really know how diabetes affects people’s lives …?

"One time my pump didn’t deliver insulin to me for about 18 hours, and I never received a “no delivery” alarm. I was at a concert with my best friend and I got really sick because of it. Ever since then, if we hang out late, he asks “how is your blood sugar?” without fail before I drive home, and periodically throughout the night. He thinks that I find it annoying, but in reality, it’s one of my favorite things about him. It’s nice knowing he cares."

(via mydiabetessecret)

I know a lot of us diabetics find it annoying when when non-betics nag us about certain things, but this is literally THE CUTEST thing I have ever read.

You know what I hate?

Over shooting how much insulin I need to do then having a low sugar after dinner but feeling like I have a high one… argh. There needs to be a cure. Not just a temporary treatment where we take injections or pills to control it. I’m not saying I hate you diabetes, I’m just sick of fighting with you just so I can live.

I’m going to share this article, but for your sanity, I’m warning all you other diabetics: DO NOT READ THE COMMENT SECTION OF THE ARTICLE. People suck and are ignorant so just don’t read them.
