abbybrooklinn On Fridays we wear blue. Excuse the squinty eyes...that sun is unrelenting. ๏ธ The shirt really is darker blue...don't know why it looks teal-ish. I blame the sun. #bluefridays #dsma #doc #wdd #diabadass #onfridaywewearblue # ##wewearblueonfriday #diabetes #diabetesawareness 14h

abbybrooklinn Well at least they agree. Ugh. Enough already. And no this is not birthday cake induced! Or birthday cake Oreo induced! #diabetes #diabetic #type1 #typeone #type1diabetic #typeonediabetic #type1diabetes #typeonediabetes #t1d #bloodsugar #highbloodsugar #hyperglycemia #omnipod #pdm #dexcom #dexcomshare #pumppeelz #fml #imtootiredforthis # 17h

abbybrooklinn Some more birthday fun! There's a lot more stuff but I really am too exhausted to set everything up and try to fit it all in one pic. Plus the cash is already in the bank. LOL Guess my fave here? The @pumppeelz gift certificate of course!! I want to send out a very special thank you to @pumppeelz for their kind gift to me for my birthday. It was very touching and I am so grateful! I am happy to be their birthday twin too!! Apple Store cards are going towards an Apple Watch, iTunes will buy me some jams and Amazon...who knows...probably something Minion related. #birthday #birthdaypresents #happybirthday #happybirthdayabs #happybirthdayabby #happybirthdaytome #pumppeelzlove # # # # #birthdaygirl 1d

abbybrooklinn Paige & I put the Play-Doh away today and made pages for each other in a Smash Book. I made her the artist page because she is the best artist I have ever met. Her creativity and talent astounds me. She made me a special birthday page. I will cherish it always! She is new to Smash Books so she was a little apprehensive but I think she did great! It's not surprising though because honestly she is great at everything. And no, I'm not sucking up. She's just an awesome person. A forgiving person. A calming and relaxing person. I'm very lucky to know her and get to spend time with her. #paige #therapy #therapist #art #arttherapy # #smashbook #stickers #artist #minions #birthday #oneinaminion #relievesanxiety #whatthecoolkidsdo #district5fun #cupcakes #crayons #calming #keepcalmand 1d

abbybrooklinn Paige is THE sweetest person EVER. Seriously, I've never met anyone like her. These are the WONDERFUL things she got me for my birthday! A MINION water bottle filled with birthday cake Oreos!! (We have a thing for Oreos, Limited Edition ones in particular.) A light up hashtag that I can decorate (I am going to do that tomorrow!!), because I am the hashtag queen! Donut cards because well they are donuts!! You've all seen my bag! LOL And a beautiful card with the sweetest message written inside. I feel so lucky and honored that she did this for me and made my day special. Thank you SO MUCH Paige. #paige #birthday #presents #birthdaypresents #minion #minionwaterbottle #oreos #birthdaycakeoreos #hashtag #lightuphashtag #diymarqueehashtag #birthdaycard #happybirthdayabs #happybirthdayabby #happybirthdaytome #imsolucky #imhonored #thankyoupaige #ifeelspecial # # # # # 1d

abbybrooklinn My homemade #omnipod for my birthday tomorrow!!! I wanted one from @pumppeelz but stupid me didn't get my custom request in soon enough. I am happy with the way this turned out though. It has candles on the sides and stars and confetti on the bottom. #birthday #diabetes #diabetic #type1 #typeone #type1diabetic #typeonediabetic #t1d 2d

abbybrooklinn And so it remains. I got a new Dexcom receiver today and as soon as I set it up, THIS happens. BTW, that is my same @pumppeelz reused. I'm just not ready to put the purple sparkly one on yet. And that is a new Sugar Medical bag. #diabetes #diabetic #type1 #typeone #type1diabetic #typeonediabetic #t1d #bloodsugar #highbloodsugar #hyperglycemia #itsrisingfast #๏ธ๏ธ #pumppeelz #sugarmedical #dexcom #dexcomshare #ihateyoudiabetes #imtootiredforthis #stress #fml 3d

abbybrooklinn I should be happy that I'm FINALLY in the 300's right? Right? But notice those double arrows? ๏ธ๏ธ UGH!

  •   lore_t1d How are the ketones? I was hoping you'd be feeling better by now 5d
  •   healthwealthsuccessnhappiness No no no not good take a bath you. Deserve one it almost always helps 5d
  •   meganashleylive I have had a lot of success with Dr Bersteins way of eating. And the low carb high fat plan as well. I hate when my sugars are like that. It's frustrating. Hope you feel better. 5d
  •   sweetercherise I hope you feel better soon:( 5d
  •   abbybrooklinn @lore_t1d Ketones are moderate...not enough to send me to the ER. I am monitoring very closely. I'm actually back "high"...I have increased my basal rates quite a bit so we'll see! @healthwealthsuccessnhappiness GREAT idea!!! Thank you for the suggestion!! I am going to do just that!!! @meganashleylive I do pretty good with diet...I'm just under a lot of stress. @sweetercherise Thank you so much!!! 5d
  •   kdisimone It's a vicious cycle. Stress bring high blood sugar, high blood sugars can be stressful to deal with, continuous cycle. . Hope you feel better! 5d

abbybrooklinn Hours later, many boluses later, a site change later, NovoPen Echo use later, 64 ounces of water later and I've come down a whole 27 "points". WTF #diabetes? Really? Come on now. I'm freakin' tired. #diabetic #type1 #typeone #type1diabetic #typeonediabetic #t1d #bloodsugar #highbloodsugar #hyperglycemia #dexcom #dexcomshare #omnipod #pdm #pumppeelz #imtootiredforthis #fml #ihateyoudiabetes #stress 6d
  •   creativet1d Yuck, hope you get your bgs down soon and safe landing! 6d
  •   lore_t1d oh poor baby!! I wonder what's going on? Illness? Did you open up a new bottle of life juice? 6d
  •   abbybrooklinn @creativet1d Thank you!! @lore_t1d STRESS!! Major, major stress. Ugh. Yes, did open a new bottle but I don't think that or my site was the problem. *sigh* 6d
  •   lore_t1d Try and relax praying you'll feel better soon @abbybrooklinn 6d
  •   nelsramir If I was that high I would do at least 40units regular. 6d
  •   type1diabeticlyf Ugh that's way too high! I feel sick for you. I normally inject 6 units and check bg every 2 hours and give another 6 units until it's down to a safe level! Hope you feel better soon ! 6d
  •   seemycgm Hope you're coming down now. 6d

abbybrooklinn We are still working on our Minion army but took a break to make some animals today. I made the ugly black cat and even uglier bunny. Paige made the pretty ones. I really love her elephant and her fish. #therapy #paige #arttherapy #art # #playdoh #playdohfun #playdohcreations #playdohanimals #relievesanxiety #calming #keepcalmand #whatthecoolkidsdo #district5fun #playdohcat #playdohduck #playdohfish #playdohbunny #playdohelephant #playdohdog #myhappyplace 2w
