DBlog Day

Today, being "dblog day", we've been asked what six things we would like people to know about type 1 diabetes.  I figured I'd ask Taylar herself and get her input and help here... in her own words.

 - Diabetes is when your pancrease doesn't make insulin and you have to go to the hospital.

 - I want people to know about the OmniPod and that I like it a lot because you don't have to get shots. 

 - People with type 1 diabetes can eat whenever they are feeling hungry, well, except at school.  But you need insulin to help me not get "high" and to cover the carbs.

 - Oh, you can't catch diabetes from a friend. It's just happens.

 - When you're the only kid at school that has diabetes, you feel special sometimes.  (Yes, she is the only student out of about 300 kids)

 - Diabetes doesn't mean you're an odd person.


  1. Love her answers, especially the odd person bit! :)

  2. She is special! Great answers. She has a good head on her shoulders. I was telling Eric a lady visited our church on Sunday and was asking prayer for her husband. He was diagnosed in September. He is refusing to accept his diagnosis, and his b/s's are out of control.(sounds like he doesn't like needles, so he might be "skipping" taking some.) I was telling her about Taylar and how she loves the pod. So I'm spreading the word about the Pods! :)
