November is diabetes awareness month. It's been almost a year since I was diagnosed (if you don't count my gestational diabetes). Such a heartbreaking moment. I remember wishing I still had my family dr (she moved away during my pregnancy). I was at a walk in clinic and when they told me the for sure news (since they had sent me for bloodwork for it, I suspected as much). They seemed to be cold about it. Seemily routine. Which I understand to a point but to hear such bad news in such a nonchalant way made it seem worse. No sadness or care. I left in tears to call my husband. Now my life is very different. Do i still have the occasional bad food? Yes. I am only human. But ive made so many changes in my life. Food choices, exercise and trying to deal mentally with this disease. Most people think that not much has changed. I look the same, just smaller. I act the same most of the time but it's been a struggle to say the least. I spend a lot of my day trying to keep up with my very busy little boy. Most days I can't. Most days, I am just waiting for nap time for him so I can try to get some rest. I get very tired, very fast. My fingers and toes go numb on and off. My eyesight gets fuzzy if my sugars go a little high.. I get headaches and body aches. Most people dont know that diabetes can do all that and so much more. My life expectancy isn't as long anymore. My blood pressure is usually always higher then it should be and can lead to heart problems. Those are just some of the physical aspects. Mentally it's a rollercoaster of emotions daily. Im mad, mostly at myself. Im sad for my family, especially Hayden who could lose me too young as I did my mom. Scared of my lack of abilities and my future or possibly lack thereof. I feel ashamed that I let this happen. I feel like a burdon on those who I ask and need help from. Diabetes is truly a struggle. If you know someone who has this terrible disease, please give them a break sometimes. Bring them a healthy diabetic friendly meal so they don't have to cook dinner that night. Give them a hug to show you care. And understand that not all diseases can be seen easily. 💙 Much love #diabetes #diabetessucks #diabetic #💙
Oh the pain was relentless today. Nothing I could do nor any meds that would help get any relief. Pain is exhausting. I was doing so freakin well til today....didn’t over do it...it just came out of nowhere. Here’s hoping tomorrow is better and it doesn’t interfere with Thanksgiving. Pain is no joke- it is so taxing on your emotions and physical being to fight the pain all day. But don’t give up- I kept reminding myself I had 3 children...this was nothing compared to that. I can do this....doesn’t make it easier....but I’m still here to fight another day and that’s a win. The raw truth about today- it’s ok to be vulnerable and let others see the struggle. But don’t give up! #painisexhausting #chronicpain #rawandvulnerable #dontgiveup #pain #thismonsterwontwin #butyoudontlooksick #msmessedwiththewronggirl #msfighters #fuckyoums #ms #multiplesclerosis #findacure #invisibledisease #mssociety #autoimmunedisease #mswarrior #curems #msresearch #nationalmssociety #msawareness #mssupport

You can just call me Violet🤷‍♀️ Having one of the worst cases of endo belly I've had in a while. It's sooo painful!! I can't move even the tiniest bit without it hurting like crazy😩 #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endo #endowarrior #endosisters #endopain #endobelly #violetbeauregarde #iwanttoglorifyhim #fightlikeagirl #findacure
This is an older picture from earlier this year when the boys dad was doing chemo, but it says it all, his face says "she gets on my nerves, " and my face says "I know I do. " 😂 We have our differences, but there's not a bone in my body that could ever hate him, or hold a grudge for too long, life is way too short for all of that and no one is promised tomorrow. Together we have two handsome boys that need him. Please continue to pray for him, his kids and his family, things are really tough on him this time around. #ihatecancer #findacure #gettingonhisnerves
Like most women who have had breast cancer I worry for my children. Let’s hope we can discover a cure and reason by the time my children are older.

We are given several different medications to help treat our symptoms, then often medication to treat the side effects of the other medication. We're left feeling just as ill from all of these side effects, and judged for the amount of medication we use. We need a cure, we need to treat these illnesses instead of just putting a plaster over the problem and sensing us on our way. We're the ones that can fight for what we all deserve, don't be made feel embarrassed or shy or inadequate. Stand up, speak up, shout, make sure you're not ignored, support each other and raise awareness, because awareness is the forst step in striving to find the cures you all deserve! #findacure #fight #medication #Warrior #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #ms #MultipleSclerosis #endo #endometriosis #lupus #pots #dysautonomia #diabetes #cysticfibrosis #lymedisease #crps #arthritis #chrons #Fibromyalgia #gastroparesis #menieresdisease #eds #me #autoimmunedisease #chronicallyill #chronicallyawesome #chronicallyinspiring

(TL;DR: pasta is great, but so is saving lives—check out @curemsd and consider donating on Giving Tuesday.) Another day at home with my little coconut 🥥👶🏻 Today we enjoyed an adventure in pasta making—with lots of encouragement from my cutie, I managed to make a passable pappardelle for the last of the ragú. I enjoyed a bowl, and so did she 😋 albeit with much smaller noodles. With Thanksgiving just a couple days away, I couldn’t help but spend some of today thinking of all I’m thankful for. My family and the good health they’re in always tops my list, but I am keenly aware that, in many ways, this is just a matter of our excellent luck. Just a few weeks ago, I read the story of a little girl named Willow who has a genetic disease so rare that there is currently no cure. Not only is there no cure, but—before her diagnosis and her mother’s Herculean efforts to raise funds for and push research for a cure—there was no work on developing one for so few children. One can tell straight away when they see Willow (pictured 4th) that her parents must be so thankful for the light she brings to their lives. But the more I consider little Willow’s fate—to have been born with Multiple Sulfatase Deficiency, a disease that claims its victims before they even turn 10–the more I wish that her parents could simply enjoy a life in which Willow could be guaranteed a future. She has never spoken; now she cannot even eat. When I ruminate on this, my friends sometimes tell me I should just be thankful that my little girl can do these things, that I should feel happy and satisfied. And, yes, I do feel immense joy sharing a meal with my daughter, but I don’t feel it’s right to do nothing when there’s a chance that kids like Willow might get to enjoy a long lifetime of happy moments like these with their families. Thanks to the efforts of Willow’s mom, Amber, and the United MSD Foundation, clinical trials for a promising treatment could start as early as 2019. Please check out @curemsd and consider donating. Let’s give Willow’s parents some extra hope this Thanksgiving 💙 #curemsd #findacure #philanthropy #kids #homecooking #dinner #pasta #momlife #giveback #savethechildren
This sweet girl is my mericle baby! Part 2 of her story is now up on my channel! I shared her story to spread awareness to this awful disease that has no answer to its existence. #findacure #BA #biliaryatresia #liverdisease #kasaiprocedure #livertransplant
Great job this past weekend with my amigos taking on the Pineapple Classic! Such a great challenging event. It was wonderful way to fight cancer in a team setting. Which will help us come even closer to a cure for a terrible illness that effects so many of us in different ways. So happy to have enjoyed this with @hawaiian_polar_bear @margauxleigh #pineapple #pineappleclassic #closertoacure #beatcancertogether #beatcancer #findacure #worktogether #amigos #challenges #sunnysunday
The problem is we think we have time...but none of us are getting any younger ⏳. Our time here on earth with each other is finite....please don't forget that shit. So stop overthininking & being afraid! Especially don't be that way with someone like me who understands this about life too damn well. I will ALWAYS appreciate & reward straightforwardness & honesty. #justgoforit #saywhatyoufeel #dontletfearstopyou #deepthoughts #dogood #bekind #workhard #behumble #makeadifference #spreadkindness #sprinklethatshiteverywhere #purpose #motivation #inspiration #wisdom #inspireandmotivatetheyouth #selfgrowth #youcandoit #inspiration #breastcancerawareness #findacure #helpothers #mechanicalengineer #investor #doglover #giveback #selfgrowth #wordsofwisdom #stayhumble #egokillstalent #kindness #haveagoodheart

#fuckcancer 🎀 37/54 #PerfectFit Literally less than an inch away 👌🏾 from the fire detector and the light switch. 5 Few reason this piece is so meaningful to me: 1) Most of us have a friend/relative affected by breast cancer. 2) Working in biotech, companies like mine are at the forefront of developing treatments and potentially a cure for all strands of cancer. 3) The piece is just fucking dope. 4) Artwork are an investment and limited edition pieces appreciate over time. 5) I’ve always loved graphic art and graffiti. Childhood friends all remember my bedroom looking like a 90s NYC train, fully tagged. Thanks again @iam_setfree @kingsaladeen for allowing me to finally get this piece framed and apart of my home. #findacure
It was difficult to come to terms that the table my mom should be sitting at instead held a photo of her and our family. But we got through it. #findacure #mymommybestfriend

“ Oh Gram.. sometimes I still see you in there. It’s your eyes. Or maybe if your soul peeking through. Some days I really miss “you” but I’m thankful I get to still see you and hear you and be with you” 💜 thank you to @danielle.claudio for sharing these photos of herself and her grandmother 💜 #endalz #dementia #alzheimers #alzheimersawareness #findacure #alzheimersfight

#Cycle4 started today. #Chemotherapy for #multiplemyeloma 😏 No doubt I won’t get any sleep the next two nights because of the #Dex Im on 20mg 4 days a week. the ONCO and Nurses say it’s a very high dose. They are hitting me hard with strong doses and going twice a week. Later this week I go to Boston to meet with my MM specialist. Local DF said there is a big probability that she will extend my Chemo at least a few more cycles. Needless to say I’m not happy about that thought. But at least I can be prepared when I see her and can have a bunch of questions to ask. Local DF hopes they will cut down on the DEX and the schedule as it’s completely wiping me out. And also either stop velcade because I have #neuropathy 😣#Bloodcancer #RVD #VRD #Revlimid #Velcade #dexamethasone #Lenalidomide #Bortezombi #Steroids #Cancer #Myelomawarrior #Findacure #Danafarber #Cancersucks #Infusion #Staystrong #Chemo #Naturesfairy #Bloodcancer #MGUS #Cancerwontslowmedown #Fuckcancer #cancerpickedthewronggirl #Cancerwontdefineme 👍🏻#Keepsmiling 🤗🧚‍♀️
Hi, I’m Kim. I’m a counselor and pulmonary fibrosis patient. I’ve had PF for 4 ½ years and have learned a lot about how to live with this disease. I wrote a book in hopes of making this journey a little bit easier for PF patients and their loved ones. Being a good friend to myself on this journey has helped me so much. It eases the losses and fears I experience when I am able to treat myself with the kindness and compassion I would give a friend. “Pulmonary Fibrosis Journey: A Counselor and Fellow Patient Walks with You” It’s #1 in its category!!!

SAVE OUR MEN! Suicide rate is increasingly high and even more so in men yet we aren't talking about it enough. We often hear men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Don't be One in Five. Don't risk losing someone you love too soon because we aren't talking about it. Support Movember and Men's Mental Health Awareness. Donate today to help the Movember Foundation reduce the rate of male suicide. Help me stop men from dying too young! https://mosista.co/dianachatts #MentalHealth #MensHealth #ProstateCancer #TesticularCancer #SuicidePrevention #Fundraising #FindACure #Movember #Moustache #Bitmoji #letstalk #letschatt
@jdrfhq is a organization that raises money to find a cure for #T1D . One of the best things this organization has done for me was giving me the opportunity to go speak to congress about type one diabetes, and while I was there they had @brecbassinger and @austinbasis there and I was able to meet them (I played it cool on the outside but inside I was fan girling). I heard there story and they gave great tips and advice on how to take care of type one diabetes. #livinghealthy #happy #dreambig #jdrf #diabetes #congress #Typeone #findacure #turntypeoneintotypenone #diabeatthis
