Vacationing/Traveling with Diabetes

May 20, 2015


Recently, I was asked to write about being on vacation with diabetes.  Over the years, I have traveled the world with diabetes in tow, and I will tell you, it is possible – as long as you plan accordingly.  Planning and preparing is essential.

Losing Control

August 8, 2012


I woke up at 2 am feeling nauseous and flu like.  Oh no.  Was I getting sick?  Oh no.  My intuition was to check my bloodsugar.  Test, test, test. I found my purse, pulled out my phone (needed the flashlight on it) and located my blood machine.  I did all this in the dark of […]

Paula Deen and I: a Diabetic’s Perspective

January 24, 2012


Paula Deen. Under fire right now. Why did she hide her diabetes for 3 years? Did she cause her own diabetes with her high fat and sugar cooking? How could she continue to promote her unhealthy cooking to her fans after being diagnosed with diabetes? Let me start by saying – I do not know […]
