Welcome! I'd like to talk to you for a few minutes about diabeetus. Actually, about diabeetus and how it has affected me in my life. I'll start when I was first diagnosed. I was scared to death, I was experiencing symptoms that were... Strange, and unfamiliar to me, for instance I had an unquestionable thirst and my tongue felt like a horseshoe. I was losing my vision, I was losing my energy, I was getting up fifteen or twenty minutes all through the night. So I wasn't getting any rest. And as a result of all these things, I lost all my energy. I'm surrounded by people who love me, and I was... I was scared. Girl doesn't like to admit she was scared, but I truly was, I wasn't afraid to die; I knew that was coming to all of us. But, what I was afraid of was diabeetus.

So, this blog is here for us to help each other. Diabetes can make you feel terrible, and we don't need to be like that.

So forget your troubles, c'mon, get happy. I have done things I shouldn't do. Do the best you can with what you've got and I would encourage all of you.

Hey guys, wanna see something cool?

lasersaur:

The company my dad works at is developing glucose monitors that let you monitor your glucose levels without taking blood samples. That’s right; diabetics never have to prick their fingers again. The monitor uses light to test blood sugar level. You can even buy the monitor and connect it to your smartphone, and view your health stats from there.

The best part? It’s already been tested, and it works. Fuck yeah.

Monitors will be commercially available in Europe in June, and they’re taking reservations now. They’ll be available in America once the device gets FDA approved.

Seriously though, this is so cool. It’s the holy grail of medical technology. I’m not diabetic, but I know a lot of people who are and this is just a really really cool product.

Remember, you’re never the only one.
You’re not the only one who has to suffer those embarrassing little things that come with your illness. You’re not the only one who doesn’t want to talk about it, either. But just knowing that someone else has to go through the same pain, or humiliation, or grieving as you do can help.
“Diabetes is that one where you can’t have sugar, right?”
No. It’s that one where your pancreas is a bitch, where you have to count the carbs in your food so you can give yourself the right injection so you don’t get ill, where you have to check your blood sugar multiple times a day, where you end up with depression and diabulimia, where you end up hating yourself for being a burden, where you end up with bladder problems and memory loss and a constant cold and a crappy immune system and days where you just want to curl up into a ball and forget than anything exists and where no matter what people say to you, they can never really help because they can never really understand it.
This is why I’m so glad I’ve become part of the diabetic community on tumblr - it is a constant reminder that I’m not the only person going through this, and there is always someone there to talk to.

Sh*t Diabetics Say

http://certainintelligence.blogspot.com/2012/01/shit-diabetics-say.html

Omg this is beyond perfect. The first one though, I always ask people to tell me if my drinks diet cause they hate the taste and I don’t even know it. And the trying to find good hypo food!!!

I’m really glad Paula Deen waited three years to tell everyone about her diabetes. Going through diagnosis is hard enough, so could you imagine going through it as well as all the shit people are giving her?
