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!

Happy New Year!

Whew!  It's been a while, but I'm still here, still fighting the d-monster with my daughter every day. 

I've been off-line with my d-fight since sometime in November.  I think I burned myself out, trying to blog daily for a while there.  That happens every few months, and I just avoid all the forums and blogs for a while, then eventually I feel a pull to start reading and talking to people again. 

Here's hoping that your 2012 is full of great numbers!


  1. Happy New Year! I hear you on the burnout... that's why I try not to blog every single day, to avoid that. We have to live our lives first, and do the online stuff second or even lower down on the list. But, glad to have you posting here when you're able. Here's to a great 2012!

  2. The great thing about feed readers is that when you are ready to come back, we're here to read you.

    Happy new year!

  3. We all need time away from blogging. But glad you're going to be posting again. You have been missed!


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. :)
