- I'm a glass-half-full type of girl. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, grave's disease and celiac disease in 2010 and life-altering allergies in 2013. I believe having a positive attitude is the only way to live with dis-ease. I also believe that life doesn't have to be PERFECT for it to be WONDERFUL. Dis-ease is expensive, so I live a frugal yet healthy lifestyle. This is just my blog; my day-to-day story.

Diabetics will never have clean sheets.
I must have had a gusher during the middle of the night. I routinely wake up and check my bg in the middle of the night without turning on the lights. Sometimes I do almost all of it with my eyes closed, only peeking to see what the number is.
This morning I woke up with finger poke -sized blood stains and smears all over the place, like under my pillow. Then when I checked my bg on my PDM, I saw that the buttons were all bloodied up, too. Yep, must have had a gusher last night and didn't even know it.
Every set of sheets I own have finger poke blood stains on it. It's inevitable. I was mad because I had just bought a new, expensive set of sheets from Bed, Bath & Beyond and within a couple days had new stains on it. I guess that's just part of Big D, never having clean sheets.
