I did it!

After I found out about the You Can Do This Project website and had the chance to watch some encouraging videos, I finally opened up and decided to record my own.
 I had no idea of what I wanted to say, or  how to begin.

Anyway; here it is.

Happy 1st Birthday Diabetes!!

                                   July 2, 2011.

I cannot believe it has been a year since the day my mom took me to the ER knowing something wasn't quite right with me. Its been a long journey, with many ups and downs.

My blood sugar was 682, and my A1C was 14.6. 

I began taking shots, and a couple of  months later I started pumping. 

My I:C has been changed several times, as well as my basal rates. 

Today, I had my Endo's appointment. My A1C is down to 7.7 and I am feeling great.

It has been a year full of learning.

 A year f meeting wonderful people, and doctors, but especially a year of getting to know my own body.

Students With Diabetes 2012

This past June 1st I headed to USF in tampa with my best friend. We were going to the Students With Diabetes National Conference. We were super exited! Since I was diagnosed I had only attended a Bowling night with some other adults from my JDRF chapter, but i had never been in a room with more than two diabetics. This was for sure a life changing experience.
As you have probably seen, my last post was months ago. I had gotten tired of diabetes and all that come with it. I had decided I was just going to worry about myself, and really just forget about this blog. I have to say i felt lonely and depressed, so I am glad I attended this conference. It motivated me to keep taking care of myself, and i learned that there are many others just like me living with diabetes. 
Even though I've always had the support of my family and friends, I just felt like no one understood what I was going through, but this was a life changing experience. It was amazing to talk to other young adults about our Diabetes.
My best friend Michelle, who has always been there for me, really wanted to come along and learn more about what she can do to help.
I really learned more bout my diabetes in this 3 days than i have in this 10 months with diabetes.
I met extraordinary people! and I was very inspired to keep going; never to give up so easily as I almost did.

lucky day.. i would say, YESS

what a long day, i do not know where to start... long story short TODAY WAS MY LUCKY DAY.
just kidding but, it was a really good day.
It was a normal Friday morning.. but it was raining -__- I went to work just like any other friday morning.. But this time I got there ten minutes before. There is one store that has the most amazing clothes in this world, it is my favorite store in the whole mall! and everyday when Im walking through the mall to get to my job, I see all the amazing clothes they have.. today I decided I was getting the Hoody that has been telling me "buy me, buy me" for the past week or so.
After work, i went into the store and looked for a XS  size hoody and i found S, M, L, XL and XXL
o_O Crazy I know!!!
this lady comes up to me and asks me if everything is alright, I told her what I need and she goes to the back of the store to see if they have it, but before going there she says "if you didnt find it there, im afraid we dont have it" I thought to myself, great, i should of gotten it last week when they first got them.
A couple minutes later she come out other two hoodies, pink and green and she says "sorry i couldnt find it in the color you want it, we have it in this colors"
I said "umm, no thanks" i didnt think spending $45 on a hoody  was worth it, so i turned around to look at the rest of things they had in the store and i there come a lady with a hoody the color i wanted AND the size I needed, she had bought it that morining but her daughter hated the color, which was fine with me, cuz I liked it.
She returned it and i bought it off course, but the best par of it is that when it was time to pay the lady tells me your total is $6.35.
uuuh.. i told her it was wrong because it said $45 on the tag and she called he manager and she told the sales lady  that it was the right price.. i paid it and well now im a happy person.. well lets say happier! :)

blue friday! 11.18.11

We all know today was blue friday, but unfortunately my work uniform is a hot pink shitra that says "Alligalli" and i wore gray pants.. BUT i still "wore" blue..

Today's been a very rainy day -___- so i grabbed my
 BLUE umbrella and started walking to the bust stop.

When iI got on the bus I looked around and I swear everyone even the bus driver was wearing bluewas it a concidence?? that I wont know, but a couple of questions pop up into my mind.. are they aware that today is blue friday?.. do the have or know someone with diabetes?.. 
As I asked those questions to myself, I look down to check the time, and then I realized my watch is BLUE!!!

I smiled and felt so much better!

Happy Blue Friday Everyone!!!!!!! <3
