Allison and I are happy to be part of the "You Can Do This" diabetes awareness campaign!
Huge thanks to D-blogger Kim from Texting My Pancreas for initiating this campaign: calling all PWDs to share our stories and our struggles via video. (Check out the campaign coverage in Diabetes Forecast - cool!)
Please see our "home movie" contributions below.

Thanks for sharing these two videos with us!It was great to hear Allison's perspective about being a child with diabetes and having her parents do the heavy lifting and then hearing about the transition once she had to do all of her own care in college.Amy, I loved seeing all of your stashes around the house and in your car. We have stashes here and there too. I finally wised up and put a second set of supplies upstairs so that I don't have to run downstairs in the night! Your kids are too cute and I loved seeing them with their signs.
@Hannah - the vid is definitely Public. Can u view it now?

Love your honesty Amy! Thank you :)
Great videos. It is nice to know I'm not alone. :)
Loved the videos!! I have only been diagnosed for 5 months. Amy I have a recipe for what I call "Diabetic S'mores" which includes 1/4 Tbs of Nutella. It's delicious and satifies that chocolate craving. You can see it on my blog at www.grammiescreations.blogspot.com
