Late night #t1d confession

I am so tired. I’m drained and frustrated and just feel like lying in bed (with a big box of tissues in hand).

Today was a particularly awful day. My anxiety was sky high and throughout the day, I just ended up sobbing and burying my head.

This is when my type 1 diabetes can come and just wreak havoc on me. Last night I was sky high and I felt it in the morning. Throughout the day I was just shot.

This disease never gives you a break. And sometimes when you’re down, it feels like it’s just kicking you. Spitting at you. And taking an unflattering photo and posting it online.

I know people have it a lot worse. But today I just had to let everything sink in and just be.

Tomorrow is a new day.


I discovered online last week these amazing cards made specifically for people with type 1! When I checked out their site again today, it lifted my spirits a bit. I love the message, I love the questions and it opens a dialogue that needs to happen. Check out Walk A Mile cards here.



  1. T1D is, unfortunately, not all rainbows and butterflies. Anyone who is transparent with his/her T1D story, as you are here, is admirable. Here’s to a better day tomorrow, and thank you for sharing.


    1. Big hugs Ally. For a long time I felt like “well I run t1dactiveliving-I need to be pro-fitness and motivate all the time!” but I quickly realized how much that didn’t work for me or my readers. I felt like a fraud in a lot of ways because I didn’t always feel happy or motivated. I’ve spent many times just crying on a treadmill or working out way too much to mask the real problems I had with t1d. I’ve been able to connect with so many more people by sharing my experiences-all of it- and that has been the greatest blessing. Thank you so much for commenting. It really means a lot to me. Today was a better day šŸ™‚


      1. We’ve all been there and it’s nice to know we aren’t alone in this. Diabetes changes its mind frequently, and that is part of the story. Glad to hear you are feeling better! šŸ’™
