Daily (mom) life with diabetes and no gluten

Wabi sabi

There is this song: “it’s got to beeeeeeeee perfect”, and I sing it in my head a lot. I am not a perfectionist in the sense that I can keep trying until I succeed, far from it. If it ain’t… Continue Reading →

Even the best make mistakes

As the sunrays cascade over my face, I hope my third attempt to write this blog will be successful. Because how do you write about the biggest mistake in your diabetes career? About a morning filled with hypo’s without a… Continue Reading →

Night owl

It is 1 o’clock at night and I am walking through the city center of Groningen. I couldn’t possible have a bigger smile on my face. Who would’ve thought I would willingly be awake this late at night a year… Continue Reading →

Check, check, double check

Last week I had my last appointment with the insulin allergy department in Amsterdam. Because of some minor snowfall all transport in the Netherlands is de-railed and as it had snowed the day before we took off bright and early…. Continue Reading →

How low can you go?

The first couple of days in Groningen have passed and I have survived them remarkably well! Though I do have to get used to being back in a student room and especially not seeing the boyfriend every day is tough…. Continue Reading →

A new year

The first day of January always feels a little strange (and no, I don’t mean a hangover), it’s a similar feeling to the day after your birthday. A year has passed, thus it is the start of something new, and… Continue Reading →

World Diabetes Day

World diabetes day (November 14th) is the day that diabetes is the center of attention worldwide. It is also the first day of my ‘new’ life with diabetes. Do I feel different? To be honest, not really… yet I know… Continue Reading →

Hospital day 3

Today I was ready for my last vial as I had put in so much effort and time the last two days. However, usually something happens which changes everything again but I was still hoping on getting out today, or… Continue Reading →

Hospital day 2

Today is my second day in the hospital. I haven’t slept very well, or long for that matter. The bed is not very comfortable, it squeaks, I had a bad hypo, and unfortunately I woke up from my roommate a… Continue Reading →

Hospital day 1

I ended up falling into a restless sleep. The boyfriends alarm went off at 06.00 and for some strange reason I couldn’t sleep anymore. I ended up watching some series in bed. I wasn’t very nervous, there was still a… Continue Reading →

It’s time

Last week I have been very busy with forms to request study delay due to medical reasons and trying to figure out how I can improve my situation. The student doctor gave me the advice to call the insurance company… Continue Reading →

Life is like the game of goose…

Life can be a fairy tale, but maybe it’s more realistic to compare it to the game of goose. You can’t always live on cloud nine, or in the case of the game, on geese. Not every square has a… Continue Reading →

Gnomes

Recently I was at my endo for a check-up. Due to the insulin allergy I have unstable sugars and I am either high or low all day. “Did you have any fun hypo’s recently?” my endo asked. Well, actually, they’ve been… Continue Reading →

The phone call

Last Wednesday was October 1st, the date was circled in my agenda. After October 1stI was allowed to call the hospital to ask where I was on the waiting list to get treated for the insulin allergy. This was as… Continue Reading →

I spy with my little eye; people like me

You are a patient, regardless if you have diabetes, you are celiac or you have hay fever. You are ‘different‘. And sometimes you get confronted with it if you like it or not. For example at a dinner where there… Continue Reading →

Insulin allergy

Unbelievable, no idea that it was possible but apparently it is… As a person with diabetes you can be allergic to insulin… I am allergic to the adjuvant in long-acting insulin and on top of that I am allergic to… Continue Reading →

High in the sky

I live together with my boyfriend, and this lovely chap has a hobby called ‘soaring’. This is a lovely sport where you fly in an airplane which has no engines. No engines? Well how does that work? Well basically the… Continue Reading →
