Woman, Independent Parent, Artist, Advocate, Artifical Pancreas.... and EVERYTHING in between.

I am blessed to be parenting two beautiful girls, ages eight and eleven. My youngest nearly lost her life at age six (August 2010) to diabetic ketoacidosis: an often fatal consequences of undiagnosed type 1 diabetes. This is OUR journey: raw and sometimes, uncensored.

Thank you for visiting wishing good health and a cooperative pancreas to you and yours.

Interesting Project

Diabetes 365 is a project on Flickr where participants post a daily photo of their T1D experience. The point being, to provide a more "balanced" image of T1D than the marketing imagery.
Check it out here:

I don't have the time to commit to 7 pictures each week, so I'm passing on joining the project. However, that being said that I don't have time, I did run out and get a picture today. I'll post them here instead of Flickr, because, again, I'm not sure how long my commitment will last.

This image here is Rowan (7) charging around outside trying to avoid me, after calling her in for a morning snack. It's hard having to pull them away from the escape of play and the magic of imagination, and have them deal with reality. Yet we do so several times daily.
Love you Rowan!
