        Any day of the year is not a good day to be diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. For my 9-year old son, it happened to be Halloween day….yes, Halloween day of all days. Trading in an Indiana Jones costume for a hospital gown does not quite live up to his all-time favorite Halloween moments. Instead of trick-or-treating, we spent several days in the hospital not only to get blood glucose under control, but to learn how to manage this new lifestyle (I’m sure you can all relate). We had countless hours of educational classes with nurse educators, nutritionists and social workers – everything from selecting our diabetes supplies, learning how to check blood glucose and give injections, counting carbs, calculating the appropriate insulin dose and working with the school nurse. The skills came fairly easy to me having a prior nursing background; however I knew I wouldn't be the only one counting carbs and calculating insulin doses. Like many families, we are two working parents, and will rely on the school nurse, babysitters and other family members and friends to help with his care. Each time I met with the countless health care providers that revolved through our hospital room, I asked if there was a recommended website or app that could address my concerns to help track. A couple of sites were loosely mentioned, but clearly there were no strong recommendations. I searched online and downloaded dozens of apps. Each had their own benefit, but I could not find one comprehensive app that would address my needs of reducing risk for error in the calculations, allowing multiple caregivers to input data, and producing a comprehensive report that could be emailed and reviewed by his healthcare providers. Lucky for me, I have two amazing friends (who also happen to be developers), that listened to my concerns the weeks following his diagnosis. They saw first-hand the frustration I was experiencing, and with their health care technology background they knew a solution could be built. What started out as an effort to help my son has turned into a greater effort to share this app with others. A Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis can be overwhelming, but we hope the use of this app will help you better transition to a “new normal” and give you the power to best manage and monitor your child’s care.

              In recognition of World Bipolar Day I am taking an active roll in bringing awareness and fighting the stigma associated with Bipolar Disorder. I will be uploading several videos of myself over the next few days of my manic activities. This is unedited raw video footage of some of my mania today, I have Bipolar Type 1 Disorder and I have reached a point where I can identify when I am sliding into a hypo-manic, manic, full blown mania but sadly if I spiral into psychosis I am usually not self aware enough to care or do anything about Okay check it yo....Obviously I am not a professional film maker .....I am just posting this video to bring awareness to Mental Illness and more specifically Bipolar Mania which there seems to be a shortage of in general because it is very difficult for most people to recognize that they are in the middle of a manic episode and slow down enough to capture video. Anyhow please feel free to contact me if you have any questions

                      What are Tags?

                      Tags

                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
