When you have Type 1 diabetes you become your very own science experiment. This is my life. The highs and lows, ups and downs, and all the little pricks.

Pic-a-day 3: Snack
I should post a picture today that makes me look like a good, healthy eater. But I am all out of peas (I really do eat a lot of peas) so you get this instead
I am a sucker for ice cream. When I first received my diagnosis of type 2 diabetes it was one of the hardest things to give up. I tried several low carb varieties and just couldn't get past the taste. The Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom flavors, however, are delicious. I slowly got back into a more controlled habit of ice cream again and after I got my new diagnosis of type 1 and could regulate it with insulin I felt a little better about it. I never really was able to see the effect it had on me until I got my Dexcom and found it didn't lead to big spikes and my body handles it pretty well. Yay me! If I feel so inclined I can even eat a pint of Ben and Jerry's (which I have been known to do) and have no issues as long as I time the insulin right. You know, for those times when I run out of peas.
