Hello, my readers!

I am here today to praise my awesome, talented friend Thea, because I gave her my concept for my logo and she straight-up ran with it.

Look how pretty and shiny it is!

Go to to check out more of my friend's work, or visit her Etsy shop here to see what she's got for sale!

Call for Diabetes Rhymes!

Yes, folks, since it's National Poetry Month and I'm finding it's a bit harder to keep up than I thought, I encourage YOU, my beloved readers, to send me your four-line rhymes about diabetes.

Why rhyming quatrains? I'm not really sure. I just think rhyming things have a tendency to be lighter than free verse, and I am all about making people laugh in spite of their hardship. I will publish your lines on the blog all month long, so keep them coming. Please also leave a link to your blog/TuDiabetes profile/what have you so I can give you the credit you deserve.

Got something silly to say about diabetes? Please email it to me at nrrdygrrl-at-gmail-dot-com.

Happy Easter / spring holiday / Passover / fill in your holiday of choice here to all!

Rhymed Diabetes Silliness, Day 1.

You say I shouldn't be so thick,
My dear, it's just a B-G prick!
Well yes, it's true, it's small I say,
But YOU try this ten times a day!

National Poetry Month, part 1.

A Diabetes Limerick, by me.

Diabetes Limerick #1

A stylish gal with the 'betes
Loved dresses and skirts full of pleats--
Pump clipped to the placket
Of her oversized jacket,
She'd sacrifice fashion for sweets.

Also, yesterday Chris made the brilliant suggestion that for National Poetry Month I could write a quatrain (4 lines, rhyming) a day pertaining to diabetes, then at the end of the month I can recap them all into one massive rhyming diabetes poem! This sounds like a fun challenge. Let's see what we can do with that.

Long Time, No Nothing.

Hello readers!

I miss you!

I have been busy and frolicking in the delightful spring weather, but I promise there is going to be something AWESOME coming very soon.

In the meantime, did you know that April is National Poetry Month?

How do you propose I celebrate, being that I am indeed a poet and a diabetic? I want to do some special things this month, so please let me know if you have any suggestions.

More soon, I promise promise promise.
