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!

Today's WEGO Health NHBPM prompt:  Disclosure post. How did you decide what to share? What do/don’t you share?

Since I write about life with my 9 year-old daughter's Type I Diabetes, I don't post anything that I think might one day embarrass her.  I don't share private details about her-- I keep things kind of general.  I don't ever want her to look back at this blog and feel ashamed or feel like I used her personal stories for my own reasons. 

I also don't share photos of my children... here, or on my other blog.  First of all, my husband is in law enforcement, and we know for a fact that someone was trying to find us online a few years ago.  Secondly, I knew of someone who found out that her children's photos had been copied and used on an "adult" website.  No way I'm risking that!

  I'm posting daily in November in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month and the WEGO Health's National Health Blog Post Month. #NHBPM

  1. My hubby didn't want me to start blogging for that reason...thanks this is a good reminder to myself!


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. :)
