D-Mom Blog was featured in the latest OmniPod PodWatch e-mail newsletter, along with a couple of fellow podding d-parents who have been nominated for Best Kids Health Blog on the Parents Magazine website. I would like to welcome new readers who have clicked over today.
There is a lot of information on D-Mom Blog. Here are a few places to start:
Here you will read Our Story as it unfolds. Our story began in May of 2008 when my daughter, then just three, was unexpectedly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. We have to travel 200 miles each way to see our endocrinologist. We began diabetes management with daily multiple injections, but began using the OmniPod insulin pump in October of 2009. We count carbs, we carry juice boxes, and we are always on call, as other families affected by this condition. You can read more About Me.
Here on D-Mom Blog you will find many resources that have taken me a long time to find for myself. I have often found myself wishing there was an aggregation of information and have hopefully brought it together here.
