I feel Inspired

Maybe it’s because my first class at my new school is almost complete and I am going to have a mini break. Or maybe it is because I am very very very close to reaching my fundraising goal for my local ADA walk. Or maybe its because I haven’t had an allergic food reaction in a few weeks. Or maybe it’s just that I am experiencing a ROCKING blood sugar right now!

Whatever the cause may be I am feeling great, awesome, fantastic, spectacular, wonderful and mostly happy. I am so happy when I think about the future and I am so proud when I think about the past.

Recently (July 21st) I celebrated a very special anniversary. 13 years of testing my blood sugar, giving insulin and counting carbs. I have had diabetes for 13 years now. How crazy is that? I can remember the day I was diagnosed like it was yesterday. I can’t believe it’s been 13 years already.

My blood sugars are great and I feel healthy. All of which is probably why I am feeling so great. But also I am proud of what I have done to get to this spot. Testing my blood sugar way more often then I used to. Taking and adjusting insulin doses like a pro (even though sometimes I have no idea what I am doing). Also I have been single-handedly dropping my A1C a couple of points at a time steadily for about 7 years (since I switched to the pump). Ultimately I feel proud of how hard I work and I am beginning to see the outcome of working hard.

I have been doing much “soul searching” lately. As you probably know by now, I have just graduated my community college and I am on to my university where I will get my bachelors degree in graphic design, interactive media, and marketing. I am all too excited for the day I get to walk across the stage in my cap and gown and accept my degree. I am also pretty excited many more things to happen both before and after graduation.

I am excited to learn new things, meet new people, and have new experiences. There are so many plans in my head and I cannot wait for them all to happen. It feels as if my patience has grown so much just in these few months of summer. I am looking forward but there is no rush. I am soaking in all the good of now and enjoying the prospect of my future in the horizon.

I couldn’t ask for more. I am feeling wonderful and I just wanted to share. If , while reading, you find yourself unhappy. Take it from me, it gets better and you will be so very happy when it does. Just keep working and you will make it!

All to which I must say YOU CAN DO THIS!

The One About Fundraising

Wow you all really like you’re sweetener! Thanks for all of your responses and stay tuned, next week I will be doing a post about sweetener! Now on to this post:


Happy Friday! I hope you all have enjoyed you’re weeks as much as I’ve enjoyed mine. By far the most exciting part of my week this week was when I reached my fundraising goal.

I’ve been collection donations for the Annual American Diabetes Association Walk for Diabetes that is occurring this Sunday (Oct. 2nd). My goal was $200 and so far I’ve raised $220! I’m super pumped for the walk on Sunday! I can’t wait to see friends and meet new diabetics that live near me!

We are raising money under the name “Camp Granada Crusaders”, to send a child with diabetes to Diabetes Camp!

Here’s were you can help STOP diabetes! Head over to my personal donations page by either clicking the “Support My Walk” button to the right of this post on my website. Or you can head over to My Personal Walk Page.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is a really cool association that runs really awesome programs to get diabetic together to share stories and information, and that’s what humaBLOG is all about.

Thanks for all of your support and stay tuned for three new posts next week (one is a vlog!). Have a great weekend and think about the ADA on Sunday, because I know I will be!
