#day2 #Check
During a trip to Nashville, I had to change my site in the car because when I checked my blood sugar, it was so high and i discovered that my pump had come out and I hadn’t been delivering insulin for the whole morning. Not fun, but a new experience! Changing my site in the car! 🙂

#day8 #organization
The Diabetic Angels is an organization we formed when we were in 4th grade after experiencing discrimination…and the Diabetic Angels were created to help reduce the ignorance and fear…and to teach our friends and family about diabetes, how to use glucagon, what to do in an emergency, and so many other things. We’ve gone from fax machines to a website since we’ve started, and we will continue to forge ahead until there’s a cure!
