About Me

My photo
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.

My CELIABETES Rap.

My CELIABETES Rap.

(Ok, so please try to read/rap this in the fashion of the Beastie Boys. A little em-PHA-sis on the bold words. Be kind. It's my first rap.) :D

(Record= scratch a scratch a scratttttchhhhhh)


My life changed FOREVER
Twenty TEN was the YEAR
That I started on this journey,
That I FACED.MY.FEAR.

"YOU'VE GOT THE CELIAC
AND THE D.M.ONE
Here's a meter and some test strips
Go and HAVE.SOME.FUN"

Three months later with the ENDO
Say "I don't know what I'm DOIN"
Doc says "DO BETTER-
It's your kidneys that you're SCREWIN!"

I go to DIETICIAN,
"DON'T EAT THIS, DON'T EAT THAT!"
But it's harder than it looks
Hey, I'm also CELIAC

CAN'T EAT WHEAT, CAN'T EAT BARLEY,
CAN'T EAT OAT, CAN'T EAT RYE

So many foods excluded
Yo I think I'm gon-na DIE

Since then, I'm improvin'
Life is blessed in ev'ry WAY
I manage these monsters
They won't RUIN.MY.DAY

A1c is goin' DOWN
Must be doin' something RIGHT
CGM flatlined all day
No ALARMS.AT.NIGHT

Trying to learn the CELIABETES
Still I AIN'T.NO.PRO.
But- give a girl a BREAK
I'M ONLY 2 YEARS IN, YO!
