American Diabetes Month 2015: Day 18 - Quick push, busy day

Day 18.  Wednesdays are by far my busiest day of the week, with playing trivia and such, so I'll make this short and sweet.  I love being able to help other people figure out what diabetes is and how it can affect them.  I've written loads about this in the past, and suggest that if you haven't already taken a look at them, that you go back and read through them.

Breaking Down the Cost of Diabetes #dblogweek

Insulin and other diabetes medications and supplies can be costly.  Here in the US, insurance status and age (as in Medicare eligibility) can impact both the cost and coverage.  So today, let’s discuss how cost impacts our diabetes care.  Do you have advice to share?  For those outside the US, is cost a concern?  Are there other factors such as accessibility or education that cause barriers to your diabetes care?

Using Diabetes as a Guide #dblogweek

Today marks the final day of dblogweek for 2017 and today's topic is "More Than Diabetes" which is a topic focused on letting readers of dblog week get to know me better. Below is the prompt, makes pretty good sense.
Lets wrap up the week by sharing a little more about ourselves, beyond the chronic illness we or our loved ones live with.  Share an interest, hobby, passion, something that is YOU.  If you want to explore how it relates to or helps with diabetes you can.   Or let it be a part of you that is completely separate from diabetes, because there is more to life than just diabetes!  For people who have previously read my blog, you would likely know some of the story of me outside of diabetes, but after diagnosis (just before my senior year in High School) it really did shape my life quite a bit, it changed the course of my life forever. It started me on the course to go into a major in college where I could use my skills to make a difference in the lives of other p…
