World Diabetes Day 2014

Hello fellow Type Ones! 

(Two posts in one day...what?!) 

World Diabetes Day is approaching fast, and its time to start fundraising (if you haven't already)! At school, my house Athena have had to choose a charity to raise money for, and I put forward JDRF as it seemed most appropriate. Because JDRF is now our chosen charity, I have organised a "Type Onsie Day" on Friday 14th November (WDD). I have also got to present what JDRF is, what is Type One Diabetes, explain about the symptoms ..blah blah blah. I felt really confident at the time, but now that the assembly is next week I'm starting to feel really nervous. Oh....and I a haven't planned what I'm going to say yet either...yay! So yes, Jasmin the stress-ball is trying to raise money for WDD and I hope you all are too. Comment below what/how you are raising money as I would LOVE to know. I will keep you posted and updated on how well/badly the assembly went. (Eeekk! I'm so nervous..) 

Loads of love,

5 Days to Go...

Hello everyone!

Okay, so my new sensor that had to be replaced after only 3 days has been working perfectly! 2 weeks has flown by really fast, and my monitor has told me that there is 5 days left until a new sensor needs to be inserted. I'm happy to say that I will be continuing the use of the FreeStyle Libre as I have absolutely fell in love with it. I haven't had to prick my finger hardly at all, only on occasions where I have felt Hypo, and I wanted to double check on my FreeStyle Insulinx. The FreeStyle Libre has given me so much freedom as testing my blood sugar doesn't take over my day, all I have to do is swipe! After showing my new device to teachers, my science teacher replied with "Now THAT is what technology is for." and she is right, thanks to technology, my fingers will no longer be sore and I can go about my day a little less pain free. So I urge you all to look into buying a starter pack to see how you get along with it, as I personally think it makes my life a whole lot easier.

Lots of love,
