DBlog Week-ing about Keeping it to Myself

I was never really the type of person to talk a lot about myself and my feelings (except maybe sports, I was pretty cocky when it came to that). Once I was diagnosed, I was still a little shy about my diabetes and telling people, but I got over that within a few months. The main reason was because I wanted to educate people about diabetes, so I was always willing to answer questions or talk about the disease. Obviously, once I started the blog almost 10 years ago, I’ve talked about a lot of stuff, but there are a few areas that I haven’t really shared much about.

The one topic related to diabetes that I don’t speak about much, almost zero amount of times, is – sex.


There are a couple reasons. First, my mother and I think my mother-in-law sometimes, read my blog. I just had my first child, so yes, I think everyone knows how that happened, but at the same time, this isn’t 50 Shades of Grey Diabetes.

There are a lot of specific topics in the sex realm that can be talked about, but I haven’t spent much time on it (even though I think that maybe these topics should be discussed more frequently):

  • How to deal with a low blood sugar when the mood is hitting
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Where the hell does my pump go?
  • Is it ok to disconnect during?
  • Many more topics…

  1. this made me smile, I suppose you’re right there are just some things that are TMI. Nice post.

  2. Yes, I don’t talk about sex either because I know my dad reads my blog, but I have a 6 month old so he knows it happens :-P.
