Yeah, another giveaway.  But HELL YEAH because giveaways are awesome because they support the diabetes community, signal boost a small business, and provide something diabetes-nice to counteract the diabetes-crumbs that can bring you down.  A little lift is good. Today, I’ve partnered with Rachael from Dia-Be-Tees for a fun t-shirt giveaway.  I found her store today after doing a search…

The “long and overdue” part of this post cannot be over-stated.  I have had the best medical alert bracelet from Sticky JMedical for a very long time now and am just writing about it this morning. But it’s lovely and discreet.  Because of that, I wear this bracelet every, single day, which helps protect me in the off-chance that something…

Blood Sugars, Diabetes Products By July 29, 2014 Tags: , , , , 184 Comments

A few weeks ago, a couple of iHealth glucometers showed up in the mail, courtesy of the marketing team at iHealth Labs.  I have not tried this meter out yet, and I have no clue how it performs against my current glucose meter … but I’m curious.  It’s a teeny little meter and it plugs into the headphone jack on…

Tallygear Winners!

Diabetes Advocacy, Diabetes Community, Diabetes Online Community, Psychosocial Support, Real Life Diabetes By July 18, 2014 Tags: , , , , , , , 3 Comments

The Tallygear giveaway was fun to run because it helped contribute to a discussion about how people in the diabetes online community are tackling diabetes-related stigma.  The comments section had some great points about erasing diabetes stigma, and I wanted to highlight a few: “Today I had a good discussion with my sister about the different challenges I face (35…
