Abby was on vacation last week (and was missed – sorry for throttling your inbox!), and while she was on ‘real vacation,” she also took a pump vacation.  But diabetes wasn’t playing according to plan, and she tells the story of how vacation wasn’t all rainbows and … you-know-whats. *   *   * So I graduated from nursing school, signed a lease…

Today, I’m honored to have Catherine Price (of A Sweet Life and The New York Times fame) guest blogging at SUM, and she’s tackling the issue of the Christmas holidays and diabetes.  Enjoy her post, and welcome her to the diabetes online community!  *   *   * December is scattered with diabetic land mines, and things only get worse on holidays themselves.

If living with a chronic illness gave people superhero powers, it would explain Jenni Prokopy of ChronicBabe.  Jenni, creator of the empowerment resource ChronicBabe, wanted to “provide an online community for younger women with chronic health issues who want to live their best lives.”  And she definitely did.  When she’s not promoting her site, traveling to conferences, and bringing sexy…
