Rejection is hard, especially when it is on something you are so passionate about. You know what’s worse than rejection? Giving up on that goal or that dream because you got rejected. NEVER GIVE UP. KEEP CHASING YOUR DREAMS! No matter how hard it might be or how much time it takes. You will never achieve it if you don’t keep working for it!💖 #fitashale☠️ #t1dfitness #t1dlookslikeme #eatclean #traindirty #fitfam #fitmom #fitwife #buffbunnycollection #typeone #wordsofencouragement

It’s two weeks into the new year… Most people started a diet or are looking for a quick fix to get healthy. I will tell you something… 💪🏻There is no quick fix and diets don’t last. 💙Choose a lifestyle change that will change your life! #nodiets #nodeprivation #cleaneating #carbsareok #sahm #virtualbusinessowner #ownyour24 #diabetic #diabeticfood #typeone at Jacksonville, Florida

Art can express our deepest emotions, especially if you live with an invisible illness like T1D. This month we spotlight artists like Shepard Fairey - @obeygiant - who use their talents to raise T1D awareness. In 2015, he selected The Human Trial to participate in his annual #obeyawareness campaign. Shepard created this limited edition print that became our film’s poster and t-shirt. Each t-shirt or poster bought supports the making of The Human Trial. Thank you, Shepard at Los Angeles, California

On Monday I handed in my final dummy book - ‘Diabetes and Me’ with 4 finalised full colour spreads! (It took a lot longer to write and create than I’d anticipated) 😅 This book will always have a special place in my heart as I have Type 1 Diabetes myself. I’m hoping I can find the time to fully colour the whole book at some point 😊🌈 #type1diabetes #jdrf #diabetesuk #plymuni

My new year’s resolution is to LIVE LIFE MORE FULLY WITH AND DESPITE T1D! . I hope to achieve this by addressing my struggles with T1D head on and turning them into realistic and attainable goals. As always, I invite you to join me... . 1. Balance - Live a healthy diabetic lifestyle while still enjoying life! This means accepting my diagnosis is lifelong and adjusting the stringent expectations I put on myself. I’ll have to loosen the reins on my happy BG range and stop letting my BG numbers determine my mood. It will require a great deal of grace, patience, and mindfulness. . 2. Adventure - Make more time for travel and experiences! This means facing my fears of new situations and regaining my zest for life’s many adventures. I’ll have to plan ahead and prepare for all the ‘what ifs.’ It will require me to look past the burden of T1D and see that life is worth living. . 3. Connection - Reach out to the T1D Community! This means connecting with others who live with type one and understand what it takes day in and day out. I’ll have to make an effort to meet more people with T1D and try to post more often. It will require vulnerability and courage. . 4. Education - Learn more about diabetes. This means combating my anxiety and overwhelm with a more comprehensive understanding of T1D. I’ll have to attend diabetes conferences and events, read informative books and blogs, and ask experienced T1Ds more questions. It will require time, inquisitiveness, and an open mind. . 5. Health - Make my mental and physical well-being a priority. This means proactively turning up the notch on my health. I’ll have to meet with a nutritionist to get the most out of my diet, squeeze in more exercise, find ways to help others, and do more of the little things that make me happy. It will require loads of gumption. . I plan to use these goals as a guide for the year ahead and hope posting them will hold me accountable. Here’s to a more full and happy 2019! 🥂 . ✨What are your 2019 goals?✨ ⬇️Comment Below⬇️ at Pinehurst, North Carolina

Bruising_ . My preferred spot to inject is my hips.. and it's showing. Some of the bruises are light and hard to see, but I've got probably 6-8 on each side right now. A couple toward the center of my stomach closer to my belly button. Sometimes I don't even think about them, but some days I look at them and think, wow... look what you deal with on a daily basis. Stop telling yourself you're not strong. . . . . . #diabeticawareness #t1dawareness #thatdiabeticlife #loveyourself

The beautiful dirtiness of a sensor with hours left to live 😂 So I wrote about my whole Libre saga and the problems I’ve been having and how I was taking a break. Well 2 weeks ago, it was the new year and I decided, hey, let’s give it another shot. And I decided to branch out and try it in a new spot that friends recommended to me- inside of the arm! Here’s what I can say about this experience: •After 3 iffy sensors, FINALLY it’s been accurate!! 🎉 •It’s a super comfortable location for it. Don’t notice it’s there and it doesn’t hit things when I walk around 😅 •For the reactions, we tried doing many layers of Flonase this time, and inserted it after letting it dry. I thought I was in the clear but about 5 days in the itching began so I’m expecting when I remove it later I’ll have the usual reaction under. 🥵 •Happy to be back on the Libre train for now!

Ano, i takhle sladce může vypadat snídaně diabetika.😋🥝🍓Ovšem je nutno dodat, že kdybych si před tím pořádně nezacvičila a neměla trochu nižší glykemku, tak by mi to asi hodně vyletělo. Proto si ovesné kaše nedávám tak často, jelikož jsem zvyklá cvičit spíš večer (no jo, nejsem tak uplně ranní ptáče 🐥). Vím, že někomu kaše nemusí vadit vůbec (myslím na glykémie), ale mě po ní glykémie skoro vždy vyletí tak o 8 mmol/l (a to ikdyž je bez ovoce a čokolády, to jsem si tady dopřála jen díky tomu cvíču 😄).

... a childhood dream! I was diagnosed at age 11. Ever since I remember I always wanted to be a pilot. But later on I noticed... I can’t do that anymore. I can’t become a pilot and can not earn the commercial pilot license. I was reading an article from 2016, that Canada and Great Britain are allowing people with Type 1 Diabetes to become a pilot! They need to have their glucose in ranges from 90 to 270mg/dL during the flight. If they are low they need to eat 10g-15g fast acting carbs and check the glucose level again after 30 minutes. Another article says that you can become a pilot in the United States. And somewhere in that article it says, if your glucose level is over 300mg/dL you are required to land at the nearest airport. Do you all have childhood dreams or jobs that you, seriously can not do because of diabetes? . . . . . #diabetestype1 #diabetic #type1 #diabadass #t1d #insulin #t1dlookslikeme #diabetesawareness #diabetes #typeonediabetes #type1diabetic #insulindependent #insulinpump #dexcom #type1strong #typeone #beyondtype1 #health #type1diabetes #type1warrior #diabeteslife #type2diabetes #bloodsugar #fitness #t1diabetes #jdrf #diabeticlife #typeonediabetic #diabeticproblems #pilot at Jacksonville, Alabama

What do you think? What exactly made me going low on Wednesday 1/16/19 and what exactly made me go high on Tuesday 1/15/19? 0.025units/hour. That is the smallest amount of basal rate steps for the Medtronic 640G. Those two pictures are showing you what happens if I lower my basalrate because I am going low through the night. I am currently using 0.550units/hour through the night. If I change it just one step smaller I will run high! And not only up to 160+ ... no I will run up to 200!!! Diabetes? Why 🤬 Solution? I would rather choose going low through the night and you can see in the picture me waking up and drinking a small amount of coke between 6 and 7 am. Are there pumps out there where you can have smaller steps? Like 0.005units/hour. And I know I was doing a rollercoaster during the day, because I was running high through the night. Happens all the time, if I had a rough night. I can’t stop that. . . . . . #diabetestype1 #diabetic #type1 #diabadass #t1d #insulin #t1dlookslikeme #diabetesawareness #diabetes #typeonediabetes #type1diabetic #insulindependent #insulinpump #dexcom #type1strong #typeone #beyondtype1 #health #type1diabetes #type1warrior #diabeteslife #type2diabetes #bloodsugar #fitness #t1diabetes #jdrf #diabeticlife #typeonediabetic #diabeticproblems #omnipod

Our daily school chat - she manages her bg herself (no nurse at school), so being able to see her numbers since using Dexcom and giving her warnings before she goes too low has been a blessing. She gets alerts on her fitness watch when I message her, so she doesn't need to check her phone that often. #t1d #typeone #t1datschool #bloodglucose #dexcom #cgm #diabetes #diabetessucks

Today I’m doing a 5min warm up walk followed by 20min jog and then 5 min walk cool down. It’s not much but it’s better then nothing and achievable and realistic for me 💪🏼 🏃‍♀️ #gym #typeone #mylifewithtypeone #diabetes #fit #healthy #fernwood #weightloss #strong #betterthenyesterday

@nicgetsreal

“What do you like to do?” Is a question men often ask me in the dating world. My brain quickly skims through a lot of things that the doctors suggest I don’t do any more that I used to do- snowboarding, riding a quad in the desert, and of course horse back riding. Rightfully so I know what a dangerous and costly risk these things can be and so I have had to find new things to enjoy. On Easter 2016 my mom and I decided to go horse back riding. I remember the day down to every detail. We decided we would run the horses and we hadn’t even begun to canter (we were trotting) when I hit the saddle and felt a pain shoot up my spine. It was severe and I thought I was going to vomit or fall off the horse. I called up to my mom telling her I wanted to walk the horses not yet being able to tell her what I was experiencing. The pain subsided but I didn’t feel well. I apologized to my mom because I knew she really want to run the horses. When I got off the horse my blood sugars started to rise into the 200s. Insulin would not bring them down. Later that night I ended up in the hospital for pain and vomiting. The hospital neglected to do proper tests and they basically said it was a gastroparesis flare, never looking at my back. As soon as I got home I called my endo and told him to pls look at my back. He did an MRI which confirmed a compound fracture in my vertebrae-T6 was newly fractured/broken. Then my endo said T11, and T12 are also broken but look to be older fractures. Did you hurt yourself? Did you get in a car accident? Did you fall? I was like ah, no. Thinking I’d definitely remember a fall! My brain scanned my memories which lead me to a year earlier- yes! I did fall! The previous year I had passed out in my bathroom from low bp. The same pain had plagued be as I lay flat, on the cold,hard, bathroom floor. That day I lay there thinking holy fuck, I broke my back. I was like okay, if I can get up and it doesn’t hurt I’m going to my work seminar. If it’s still painful I’ll go to the ER. I managed getting up, and getting in the shower. As severe as the pain was it was now gone so I went to work. Never said anything to anyone, not knowing I had fractured T11 and T 12
