🇩🇪/🇺🇸 INSTAGRAM-PAUSE Bitte entschuldigt meine Abwesenheit diese letzten Wochen/Monate. Ich beschäftige mich zwar momentan mit Instagram, allerdings nur im Rahmen meiner Bachelorarbeit. Die ist auch der Grund, warum momentan für vieles andere keine Zeit bleibt. Mein Alltag besteht aus Schreibtisch und Schreibtisch 🙈 manchmal vergesse ich sogar zu essen 😄 Bis März werde ich jetzt erstmal beschäftigt sein mit Bachelorarbeit, Abschluss, Umzug und Jobsuche. Es wird sich einiges (hoffentlich) ändern und ich kann mit neuer Energie wieder zurück kommen. 😊 Bis dahin, macht's gut! 👋🏼💙 • • INSTAGRAM-BREAK So sorry I've been MIA these past weeks. Honestly, it's all too much right now. I'm currently writing my bachelor's thesis, using instagram, but not having the time to actually contribute. My best friend at the moment is my desk and sometimes I even forget to eat 😂🙈 Until March there are going to be a lot of changes (hopefully). I'll be finishing my bachelor's degree, moving, looking for a job. And after that, I'll be back with more energy than before! 😊 Until then, take care! 👋🏼💙 • • #happydiabeticchallenge #diabetesawareness #t1d #type1 #type1diabetes #diabetic #diabetes #t1diabetes #type1diabetes #diabetestyp1 #typ1diabetes #dt1 #insulin #diabuddies #diabadass #t1dlookslikeme #type1strong #type1diabetic #diabetesawareness #medtronic #640g #cgm

I'VE UPDATED MY WEBSITE! LINK IN BIO. I've wanted to update it for a while, with the focus being my comics about life with T1D - I'll be adding more to my website as I have a few exciting projects in the pipeline! But for now I'll be back to creating new comics, let me know if you have a topic in mind for me to illustrate! Hope you are all having a great weekend! #missdiabetes #type1 #beyondtype1 #type1 #website #newdesign #illustration #procreate #draw #drawing #comics #comicstrip #diabeteslife #diabadass #diabetesawareness #bloodsugar #creativeproject #fun #wordpress #elementor #weekend #illustrationoftheday #pink #purple #t1dlookslikeme #insulinpump
I am extremely lucky to have an amazing support system ranging from my amazing mother who is like a backup pancreas to all of us, to the amazing MODs group by @jdrforangecounty who I am so grateful for. I got to spend a beautiful day at the happiest place on earth with some of them today and my life is so much better for having met them all.
Поздравляем вас с Крещением Господним!👼 . Желаем, чтобы здоровье было крепким, чтобы чистая водица смыла всю печаль и грусть, чтобы жизнь имела счастливое и благополучное продолжение, чтобы яркий свет надежды и любви озарял вашу душу и сердце. 😇 . . . #SD_WeekendVideo 📹@hairsalonfeed
Here's a question. Sometimes my bloodsugar drops faster than what my body can take up the sugar I eat⬇️》If I were to pass out due to low bloodsugar, would I wake up by myself once the sugar I ate quicks in? This week I had one of those scary lows where the bloodsugar drops ~15mg/dl every 5 min. I eat sugar and then I can just wait and watch the levels drop. These are nightly thoughts I have when I'm living alone again without my pre low alarms or fast falling alarms properly working😥
Experiencing some aggressive snow that went straight into the eye tonight 😖. Can it be summer yet?! #t1d #t1dlookslikeme #diabetestype1 #weightloss #weightlossjourney #snow #blizzard #winter #kansas

Carrot and Apple Mini Muffins 🥕🍏👌 made these for my son but I always carb count everything so if I want one I know how much to bolous for - 204g of carbs, made 28 all up working out to be approx 7.3g per muffin!!

The other day, an old friend was telling me that a no carb diet would be good for me. I was taken aback and told her that I needed carbs, if for nothing else, for when my sugar goes low. She asked how many times I go low and I told her at least every other day. She then replied, “still?” I asked what she meant and she said, “You’ve had diabetes for so long, how do you still not know how to take care of yourself?” Diabetes is an unpredictable, eternal disease. Blood sugar is impacted not only with food, but with hormones, stress, anxiety, changing weather, hot showers, exercise, time of day, excitement, sleep, alcohol, etc. Having diabetes for years doesn’t mean I know how to always have perfect numbers- I will never have perfect numbers. But I do the best I can everyday and that makes me pretty darn proud of myself. If you don’t fully know what goes into diabetes management, please don’t degrade someone’s efforts at staying alive. I’m thankful for the low blood sugars- it means that I am in well enough control to not end up with complications from being high all the time. It means that I get to dance and enjoy being active. It means that I am fortunate enough to be able to afford insulin that I might have accidentally used too much of. It makes me thankful that my body was strong enough to get through them and that I’m still alive. So yes, I STILL have lows and I still have diabetes. #diabetes #insulin #diabetic #diabetestype1 #highbloodsugar #lowbloodsugar #cgm #warrior #t1dlookslikeme #t1dlookslikethis
This is what Hunter does whenever we test his blood lately. I feel so bad that he has no idea this is nothing compared to what he’ll have to do when he is officially diagnosed. I feel so bad, and I hate the fact that he will have to do much more than this one day to just live. I am glad to have this community and see all your little warriors who are so brave and do it like it’s nothing. Since I was diagnosed at 2, I really don’t remember a life without it so I don’t remember ever crying and being scared, even though my parents said I was the same way the first few months of diagnosis. We need a cure now 😩! . . . . . . . #t1d #t1diabetes #type1diabetes #t1dstrong #t1diabetic #type1diabetic #type1warrior #weneedacure #diabetes #t1dlookslikeme #t1dwarrior #t1dmom #type1family #antibodypositive
late night highs...📈 water & insulin are definitely my best friends at the moment!🥤 #typeonediabetic #t1dlookslikeme #t1d
Diabetes check up today. I’m still not doing good with checking my blood and I make up every excuse I can not to use my CGM because I’m afraid of the needle. I’ve been diabetic for about 20 years and I still get scared of the pain needles bring. Overall, I am doing good but need to do better 😂 #workinprogress #tobarphotoaday2019 . . . #doctorappointment #diabetes #t1d #t1dlookslikeme #pump #diabetespump #diabeetus #typeonediabetes #typeone #typeonestrong
Did you breathe today? No, I'm not talking about the breathing that you have to do to physically exist. I mean slowing down and stopping to take a moment to yourself to take a deep breath and remember that you are alive and you're okay. Seriously, try it! Close your eyes, tune out the world for a moment, and take the deepest breath you've taken all day. . . **Pause to take deep breath** 😋 . . One of my goals for this year was to breath with intention more, especially when I'm frustrated about my diabetes. Like this week, my blood sugar is randomly running high and spiking for no reason. Several site changes, new insulin, eating healthy and counting carbs, and still having unpredictable blood sugars. I currently have my pump running with 40% more insulin than usual! Why?? I have no clue.. . . It can be challenging to balance everything in life with diabetes (or whatever burden you carry). Especially this week with the growing fear and frustration about the cost of staying alive with diabetes. (btw, thanks @novonordisk for lighting a fire in the diabetes community, because we will change this 🔥). . . Do what you can, be your best and remember to breathe. . . #everydayreality #diabetes #breathe #deepbreath #insulin4all #diabetesawareness #insulin #t1d #showmeyourpump #dexcom #diabadass #t1dlookslikeme #livebeyond #typeone #selflove #selfcare #yoga #yogi #relax #yogaeverydamnday

Today marks 20 years of being an IN(sulin)DEPENDENT WOMAN. I don’t like to say I’m “celebrating” a diaversary, but more like embracing it. As much as I hate every finger poke, shot, sensor change, high & low, I am thankful for all that this disease has taught me. I continue to learn more about myself and diabetes every day. #HappyDiagnosisDay #t1dlookslikeme *sweatshirt by: Alivia Stumbo 💁🏻‍♀️

I know, it’s summer here in Australia and I’m eating hot oats #cra But this morning it’s what I felt like. I do intermittent fasting which I find is amazing for blood sugar management. My window is 1130am-730pm so approximately 16hrs without food. I have a coffee with a dash of coconut milk around 830am but no food. At 1130am my BGL was 7.0 which is higher than I like it so I had a blouse dose of insulin around 15mins prior to eating the oats. In these oats I had 1 red apple, 1 small banana, 1/2 cup uncooked oats, a few walnuts, a sprinkle of sesame seeds, a tsp of cinnamon and a pinch of salt. In total approx 80grams of carbs 12g protein 8g fat For 80grams of carbs I have just 5-6 units of insulin depending on my BGL. Now at 230pm it’s time for a training session fuelled by oats 💪🏼 How do you do diabetes?

Back to using this cute little meter from @onedroptoday while I wait for my Dexcom g6 sensors! It can be so frustrating when you order you supplies well in advance and then you wait over 10 days for my sensor order to be "in progress" while your current sensor ran out. Yet, when I called they said there was an insurance "hold up" which they then checked into to find out that was incorrect because "we have everything we need. We'll ship it out today!" So what would have happened had I not called asking what was the hold up? Would I just been in a holding period until something eventually pushed it through or just sat there until I called? Insurance and medical supply companies can be such a frustration for someone living with #t1d who is just trying to manage their disease as best they can. 🤦🏼‍♀️#typeone #t1dm #t1dlookslikeme #typeonediabetes #t1dyoudontsee #imthetype #theunstoppabletype #cgm #dexcom #dexcomg6 #cgm #onedroptoday #onedrop #bloodglucosemeter #livebeyond #beyondtype1
This honestly hurts my heart to read. I've been diabetic for so long, I actually forget that there was a time in my life that I wasn't diabetic. This was written 2 years after I was diagnosed by my mom. It's interesting to see things from her point of view. I've been a little burnt out lately to be honest. But reading things like this make me look forward to what is coming in the future!! • #dexcomg6 #t1d #t1dlookslikeme #typeonediabetes #diabetes #dexcom #omnipod #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #typeone #typeonediabetic #typeonetotypenone #nebraska #diabadass
😩 Inferiorating that @dexcom 's 24 hour help line was not available this morning... and I'm STILL waiting for a callback!! Yet another failed sensor; they work great (when they work) & I'm very thankful for the technology... when it works... but the customer service is getting worse. 🤦🤔👎 ▫ ▫ #Frustrated #WaitingForMyCallback #FeelingBrokenAndOverPricked #NeverAdayOff #Pincushion #T1dLooksLikeMe #DexcomG6 #AdayInTheLife #DiaBadass #Dexcom #T1D #T1 #LCHF #LowCarb #HealthyFats #Diabetic #DexcomCGM #InsulinDependent #Cyborg #CGM #PartRobot #Bionic #BrittleDiabetic #HypoUnawareness #IwearMyPancreasOnTheOutside #Diabetes

Life hasn’t been a straight line of peace and happiness. However, I am beginning to see the beauty in the twists and turns of life. Not every place may be straight, but the lines, the turns, the twists are what makes us unique - and mire beautiful than any straight line could ever make us. #loveyourself #tattoo #tattooaddict #t1dlookslikeme #type1diabetes #overcoming

We’ve exchanged the rain for sun but we haven’t forgotten our roots. We took the plunge to move out of state, to try something new. We arrived in AZ and it felt as if we were made for this area. And then we hit a wall, the last few days have been a whirlwind trying to get into a home that wasn’t quite ready for us upon arrival. We stayed with some friends of friends and held to the fact we still felt called to be here. We’ve been greeted by strangers and told we fit right in (in the best way). We’ve been cared for by our sweet friends who are like grandparents to us. And more than all those things, I feel God doing a work in me. In us, in our parenting, marriage, hearts. Sometimes the things we face are mountains, the kind that take us years to climb. And sometimes there are valleys that feel like marathons. I know that the stretching is good, that the sharing of souls is actually healing, and that moments that we revisit years from now, are usually the ones that have taught us something or triumphed!

Real talk: I like to think diabetes doesn’t slow me down but on days like today it does just that! Thankful for such a patient hiking partner who I got to watch climb around like he was on a jungle gym and model for my photographs while I sat treating my second low of the trek 😊 What a beautiful hike! Side note: all sunburn is bad but January sunburn gives a small sense of satisfaction with the burn ☀️🌵#T1D
That moment when you have to stop mid workout to tape down you set because your in ration mode. I sent the paperwork to the doc (new insurance) on 1/4. They finally got sick of me calling everyday this week and sent it in. All but the chart notes. So I still can’t can’t get my order processed till at least Monday and I’m down to 4 unused sets. Push comes to shove I have a backup pump and supplies but I really shouldn’t have to be doing this... #t1dwarrior #t1dlookslikeme #myendosucks #pleasedoyourjob #5daysoffussing #insulinpump #diabedicsarehoarders
Voyez-vous le bonheur dans ma face? 😁 Je suis l’heureuse propriétaire d’une nouvelle pompe à insuline depuis hier: la 670g de Medtronic! Je me sens comme une enfant à Noël! 🎁 C’est un beau gros pas vers une tranquillité d’esprit accrue et je peux vous dire que j’attendais ce moment depuis longtemps! Même si je ne peux profiter de toutes les fonctionnalités pour le moment (j’attends de recevoir la formation adéquate pour en faire une utilisation sécuritaire), j’ai pu tester le mode d’arrêt avant hypoglycémie et juste ça, ça vaut de l’or! Imaginez-vous donc que la pompe arrive à détecter quand je suis sur le point de faire une hypoglycémie et cesse l'administration d’insuline avant que cela n’arrive et la reprend quand ma glycémie se normalise. En d’autres mots, fini les hypoglycémies (ou presque!). En raison de la baisse du taux de sucre dans le sang, les hypoglycémies entrainent une panoplie de symptômes désagréables, plus ou moins prononcés selon la gravité de la situation. Pour ma part, j’ai rapidement du mal à me concentrer, des difficultés de concentration, des maux de tête, des nausées, des étourdissements et je présente une grande irritabilité. Une hypoglycémie non traitée peut s’avérer dangereuse, c’est pourquoi on doit les prendre au sérieux. D’ici quelques jours, je pourrai vous en dire plus sur les autres fonctionnalités lorsque j’aurai eu l’occasion de les tester! Cette pompe ajustera automatiquement l'administration de mon insuline basale toutes les cinq minutes, ce qui s'avère être tellement bénéfique.🤩Je vous explique tout cela prochainement! Sur ce, je vous souhaite un bon week-end! 🙂 #mangepiqueaime #sensibilisation #pompeainsuline #dt1 #t1d #hypo #hypoglycemie #hypoglycemia #insulinpump #medtronic670g #medtronicdiabetes #medtronicdiabetes -canada #beaucouptropheureuse #type1diabetes #voirleboncotedeschoses #vivelatechnologie #tellementreconnaissante #diabetetype1 #t1dlookslikeme #t1dwontstopme
This week was challenging to say the least. But at the same time, I’m the most at peace I’ve been in WEEKS! I started almost every morning with some Personal Development and the mindset shift was MINDBLOWING! Why haven’t I done this before? I’ve always heard that engaging your mind in reading in the morning is good for you, but why did I never take this advice seriously?! So next week, I challenge you - get up 15 minutes earlier and read for 15 minutes. That’s it. 15 minutes. Get your head in the right place to start your day - it could be the Bible, a Personal Development book, heck it could even be an educational blog, but take 15 minutes to do something for yourself and your mind. P.S. if you are looking for a book to read, I will forever recommend @msrachelhollis - Girl, Wash Your Face. So many truth 💣
Sis LOVES parfaits🍨 but it does require 10 units of insulin💉 (MORE than she has to dose for PIZZA) I got up extra early this morning, took my three steps, made this treat for her and got a short stretch/yoga🧘🏽‍♀️session in BEFORE work🤸🏽‍♀️ I was ahead of everything today then diabetes decided it was going to come out and play😭 Alarms🚨, lows😩 and remaining so calm during it all😐 My dexcom has alerted me all day. SO. MANY. LOWS. She’s stable now but damn, I hate this for her😩 I’m thankful for technology but today has been ROUGH😭😭 🖤👧🏻😭 #weneedacure #type1diabetes #diabetes #t1d #t1dmom #momlife
Hi! I’m Alexa. Not really sure how starting a whole new “Instagram with a purpose” works, but, I’ll give it my best. To start: I figured a completely average unfiltered picture of me and my biggest supporter (my mom) for the first post would suffice. She gave me the idea for the name of this page anyways. (Get it? Robot girl makes robot joke.) Anyways, I started this page solely because I want to become more involved in the online and hopefully offline T1D community. I find myself lurking and hiding in the background often. Subtly ashamed or introverted around this diagnosis. On my main account, which is mostly people I know in real life... I post things... And then I delete things... because not many people really can relate or understand or respond or it seems to me, cares. I feel as though I find myself wanting more people in my life who can relate. So here is my start. I’m not really sure how this is going to go other than my daily T1D musings... But I do know that one of my goals this year is to advocate, educate, befriend, become involved, and hopefully inspire other people going through similar stuff. We’ll see where this goes!! Thanks for reading ♥️ #t1d #type1diabetes #t1dlookslikeme #diabadass
In honour of #WorldDiabetesDay , here is a picture I never ever thought I would post. A picture where you can see a tiny little machine on me. To this day, I struggle with people knowing I have this disease, I often try to hide it. 💙 • This disease is 24/7! There are no breaks. Even though I have little gadgets that help me live, it’s not a cure. Insulin is not a cure. Spreading awareness is SO important, and that’s why I’ve decided to post this. • Although I have diabetes, it does NOT have me. I can still do everything I could do before my diagnosis... including eating sugary foods teehee! It just sometimes takes a little more effort! 😉 • We need a cure. #NoMoreFingerPricks #TurnTypeOneIntoTypeNone #WorldDiabetesDay 💙🌍 • • • • • • • #diabetic #typeonediabetes #diabetes #t1d #health #happiness #acceptance #awareness #lifestyle #t1dlookslikeme
