Diabetes Blog Weekly Update #21

Celebrating life with diabetes, and painting pictures with icebergs.

Christina talks about her son's sixth diaversary and celebrating life, even if it is with diabetes. But she continues to reflect on what lies under the surface, and she uses a really great metaphor. It's not always what's on the surface that does it.

Stick with it Sugar

Exercising with diabetes often brings unwanted company.

Stephen writes about his experiences with an exercise routine, and how he often runs into an obstacle at a certain period of time that can totally derail him. He's watching for it this time, and is prepping and planning to avoid the detour.

Happy Medium

Just because she was diagnosed with diabetes doesn't mean her fear went away.

Nikki and needles don't get along well together. Fainting, passing out, all that jazz. When she was diagnosed with diabetes she had a real situation on her hands. In this blog post she talks about the moment she realized what was in store for her.

Earning cool points with a teenager is no small feat!

Daley sacrificed her weekend to help a young student with diabetes attend a winter retreat. Going out of her normal routine and comfort zone proved to make a big difference to this young lady, and surely added some extra peace of mind for her family.

I Run on Batteries

Leaning on siblings takes another meaning in families with diabetes.

Emma does some gushing, as all parents should, about her little guys. First about big brother, Meical, who has learned to help with so much, then about Jac, her little one with diabetes, who takes it all in stride. There is something magical about this post. I just had to share.

Type 1 Welsh Boy

Living with diabetes from a different perspective.

Rose is guest posting at Shara's place, and gives us a look at what her diabetes is and how it has shaped her. It's interesting to hear that it's not knowledge and access that throw her off, but rather the everyday stuff that we all wrestle with.

Diabetic Doc

Do we need to be more like the activists we've seen from other movements?

Jeff Mather asks some really thought provoking questions in his post about a documentary he watched recently. The documentary doesn't talk specifically about diabetes, but there are many points that apply just as well. Can we learn something from this?
