I have been struggling to come up with a decent own choreography piece for about a year now. I realise I’ve been focusing on the wrong thing; taking what I’m good at (singing, contemporary/lyrical dance) and making a piece from that, or picking some music. Nope.
I am going to do a piece about what it feels like to have diabetes. I will cry. A lot.
A Night to Inspire & Celebrate
She’s an amazing wife, mother, daughter, friend, former Clemson University cheerleader, tennis player and so much more. Out of all the words you could use to describe one of my best friends, Loraine, a “diabetic” is not one you would guess when you look at her healthy glow and thin physique. Yet, she was diagnosed a little over a year ago with Type 1 Diabetes. Over the past 15 months, I have watched her handle this unexpected diagnosis with inspiring determination and grace. Saturday night, we gathered around Loraine to celebrate her birthday at the JDRF Black Tie Gala “Saluting Real Heroes”. It was an amazing night filled with friendship, laughter and a silent and live auction that raised almost $300,000.00. I was so honored to be a part of this fabulous event and to enjoy the evening with my real hero, Loraine. To learn more about this amazing organization just visit, http://jdrf.org.

Hi, very confused about this eating disorder. I'm type 1, rarely inject and very rarely test my blood. Weight has always been an issue and I'm looking to loose a lot of weight. I've thought about binging, but couldn't do it, even with tips from the internet, therefore not taking my insulin helps me to loose weight, even though I feel shit most of the time and binge when i'm forced to take units. I don't know if this equates to this eating disorder or if i'm just lazy! help.
This is definitely a disordered eating pattern.
I think a good first step would be to set up a therapy intake appointment as well as consult your endocrinologist about what is going on.
Tips of any kind weight related online can be dangerous and are often posted by people with know health knowledge.
So I pee a lot. Not the “I’m a fitblr and drink a ton of water” kind of lot. Like the second I’m done peeing, I have to go again. And I’m always incredibly thirsty. I get dizzy a lot and sometimes thing are blurry. I’m also tired a lot. So I googled my symptoms and it said I could possibly have type two diabetes. Now I really don’t want to go to the doctor bc I don’t want anything to be wrong with me. The only symptom I haven’t experienced is extreme weight loss. idk what to do =/
rant time :D
right to all those morans out there diabetes may not be like cancer but i’ll tell you what why don’t you try to wake up knowing you will have a needle in you. it hurts. physically and mentally. People have said to me aw you’re so lucky getting to drink in class.lucky? LUCKY?! i would give anything to be rid of this disease. People will also say aw you brought it on yourself eating to much sugar well how about you learn your fucking facts before you dare make that remark! for six years i have battled with this i used to be normal i used to be able to leave my house with a second thought now i have to take a whole backpack out with me and i hate it. I know what sounds small but to me after six years its really fucking annoying. diabetes has ruined me i’m not the same as i was before. People truly don’t understand how my confidence is ruined i have put on weight and it makes me sick i hate the way i look to the extent i can’t stand to go shopping and i feel ugly all the time. People stare when i check my blood sugars in public and they think its okay? but if i were to stare at a child with down syndrome (which i would never do) i’m a bad person? think about that one. So the next time you past comment on someone with diabetes why don’t you think that person as a disease and aren’t well and might die like that. RANTOVER
