Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

NHBMP: the books I could write...

This post was written as part of NHBPM – 30 health posts in 30 days.  Today's prompt: Titles of my future book. Say you’re writing a book about your life, community, condition, or Health Activism. Come up with 5 working titles and a quick book jacket synopsis.

A book?  LOL!  It would really depend on the day that diabetes has thrown us as to what "mood" my title might be.   I might write:
  • Diabetes: There Isn't a "Good" Kind
  • Taming the D-Monster
  • My Life as a Substitute Pancreas
  • Diabetes Didn't Stop Her
  • The Sweet Life   (Get it? Parody of one of my kids' favorite shows, The Suite Life?)  
No matter the title, the jacket cover would have to describe our story of triumph over the monster that is diabetes.  I'd share stories about how we did our best to make life normal for Rosie from the day she was diagnosed, and how she's come along so far in life.

Think you're up for blogging every day in November about health?  Check out WEGO's challenge here.

    Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
