Diabetes Blog Weekly Update #15

This blog carnival entry looks back on 2012.

Doc P. tells a tale of fantastic experiences and world travel in this reflective post. From Boston to Atlanta to China to Dubai to Guadalupe. She brings us along on her journey with tons of pictures and stories, and even wraps the post up helping promote Blue Fridays.

Diagnosed with Diabetes but NOT Defeated

Is diabetes shared in your life? How involved are they?

Scott looks at his life with diabetes and the daily care involved. While he appreciates the moral and emotional support that both his wife and the diabetes online community offer, the tasks involved are his. His post sparked some fantastic conversation well worth checking out.

Rolling in the D

A video shoot project brings to the surface some details around the fear.

Katy was involved in a video project around hope versus fear, and the fear part of the shoot uncovered some intense feelings around what exactly she is afraid of with her son's diabetes. These are the things most parents, and probably most PWDs fear too.

Bigfoot Child Have Diabetes

A great quote, a tasty breakfast, and tearing at momma's heart.

Hallie shares a very powerful quote from Rose Kennedy and then describes a breakfast that broke her heart. Her daughter was excited about a special breakfast treat, and a nicely timed low blood sugar (which meant she could eat all of it). But Hallie noticed something that struck her pretty hard.

The Princess and the Pump

Talking about device design and human factors. Do we know what we want?

Sara attended the Diabetes Mine Innovation Summit recently. In this post, she talks about some of the conversations and interactions that she had, specifically about design and what we love, tolerate, or would like to change. She asks some great questions and gets us thinking.

Moments of Wonderful

Do you wear a medical alert bracelet (or necklace)?

Michael talks about going on an early morning run while traveling. Getting a little bit lost makes him start questioning his reluctance to wear some sort of medical alert jewelry. Quickly forgetting the mental nudges once he returned home, they're brought back to the forefront by a Glu question of the day.

A Sweet Life

Marking a milestone and wrestling with unexpected feelings.

Karen marked a huge milestone in December. Thirty-three years ago she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She writes about struggling with this and being surprised by some of the emotions that are coming to the surface. It's an honest post, which makes it even more valuable and well worth the time to read.
