Hi, I'm Heather

I'll keep you updated on the latest in type 1 diabetes management... mostly through my own trials and errors :)

Hey girl, It's just a number.

Hey girl, It's just a number.

Now I don't always get unicorns 🦄, & this blood shug's pumpkin spice mood-lighting is an even rarer occurrence. However, reminding myself I'm greater than any high or low is now a daily mantra.

 

Pro-tip: As #T1D's, we are forced to look at numbers (& get labeled by such numbers) all. of. the. time. Therefore, it's easy to fall into the black & white mindset that every BG test is "good" or "bad." Next time, try looking at each number as neutral information to make informed decisions & take action around your diabetes, NOT to pass judgement or place blame on yourself. I now keep a little Ryan Gosling inspired love note to myself 💕 (thanks "Bright Spots & Landmines" for the idea) to keep my self-blame game in check & spirits up- because we are more than just a number 🙌🏼 (& I really am more than just a pumpkin obsessed diabasic...)

Hold the grains!
