Click for the Saturday Snapshots - Saturday 5/19 Link List.

Today's prompt: Saturday Snapshots. Back for the third year, let’s show everyone what life with diabetes looks like!  With a nod to the Diabetes 365 project, let’s grab our cameras again and share some more d-related pictures.  Post as many or as few as you’d like.  Feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures, or leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.

Today was a lovely day - spent with my family, spent with my friends at a little boy's birthday party, spent with my (adored) former students at a wedding...

But from a diabetes standpoint, it sucked.

Hell, from a d-standpoint, a lot of days suck.

Late to the birthday party - because pod fell off. New pod.

Lots of delicious party food, including random pieces of half-eaten cookie that Sweetie shoved into my mouth. How do you bolus for that?

Rush home for their nap. Rush to wedding. Rush home for Hubster and the littles. We all rush to wedding reception.

Lots of appetizers, including the handfuls of chocolate pieces that Sweetie shoved into my mouth. I didn't bolus for that.

But I chased my daughter around the dance floor for a good half hour - which I count as moderate to heavy exercise.

But by the time I got home, I just had this feeling. This feeling like there was no insulin in my body. I don't know how else to describe it. It feels like a high, it feels like ketones, it feels like dehydration...but I can just tell that there was no insulin in my body.

So here are my snapshots.


I'm thankful for that last one.
