• #MakeDiabetesVisible Day 8

    Gastroparesis is one of many potential complications associated with diabetes. I’m coming to terms with my recent diagnosis and trying to figure out how to manage it and my blood glucose without losing the rest of my sanity. It’s not going well.

    The essential diabetes kit that goes everywhere I do. Meter, test strips, lancing device, CGM receiver, insulin pen, pen needles, glucose tabs, and Myabetic pouch.

    This sticker has been on the side of one of my meter cases since my initial diabetes and CHF diagnosis in December 2008. I got it from the doctors office the day I received that news. Nearly 10 years later, against long odds, it’s still hanging on. Just like me. The end of Daylight Saving Time tonight means setting all of clocks back an hour. It also means I have to take a minute to change the time on my diabetes devices as well. And, of course, change my lancet.
