well... I think I got a little tan 🤔 I tried to avoid #diabetestanlines but clearly I didn‘t succeed. At least my #omnipod and #dexcom sticked to me through that tropical heat and salty water! I‘m v proud of my robot parts haha 🙏🏻🏝💦
I know I‘m not as active as I used to be on here but when I‘m on holiday it‘s about relaxing and exploring — not about diabetes. I don‘t want to think about it more than I already have to and I don‘t want to take staged diabetes-related pictures either 🙃 It happens that I get some new content by taking photos of my adventures because after all diabetes is a huge part of my life. I will share all this with you when I‘m back home ☺️ Also I won‘t be able to attend EASD and the Diabetes Charity Gala this year, which makes me v sad but hopefully I’ll get to see my beloved diabetes community  soon(ish)! Lots of Love from Paradise ❤️💫
spending the next 2 weeks in paradise 🌴 Can you spot my sensor? It‘s hidden quite well but the trained eye of people with diabetes should find it 🔎  I tried to come up with some spots to hide my sensor and pump because I don‘t want to have any diabetes tan lines 😅 I kinda failed haha.
Since my diagnosis I‘ve always struggled riding a bike because my sugars always immediately dropped when riding it even if it’s just a short ride. I don‘t know why it is like that but it sure is annoying to stop for snacks all the time. Also the ups and downs make me feel dizzy and exhausted. I haven‘t used my bike much because of that but last month I thought it‘s time for another try and I don‘t want diabetes or my mental health to limit me in what I do any longer. 💪🏻 Riding a bike is so much fun and I love it! But as you can see I‘m still struggling with keeping my sugars up. Hopefully that get‘s better soon! 🙄
time for some sweets 👅
throwback to my time in Paris for ATTD 2017 - with my type 1 hero tote bag from @annaps_scandinavia 💪🏻 because for me people managing their daily life AND one or more chronic conditions are heroes and heroines ♥️
So I decided to do a little social media detox but it doesn‘t really help me and I also miss the diabetes community because you guys are always so supportive and I just need you in my life 🤷🏻‍♀️ Lately I‘m struggling with my mental health because I lost someone very dear to me and also I‘m nearly done with my bachelor‘s degree and I don‘t know what to do with my life after it‘s done. Right now I don‘t have any goals or dreams apart from travelling the world. I feel like I don‘t know what my purpose for this life is anymore, I feel like I just don‘t fit in and life has nothing to offer for me. Ofc it‘s not true and it doesn‘t even mean that I‘m sad all the time or that I can‘t see all the positive little things that happen to me anymore. It‘s more like it just doesn‘t make me feel anything. I know how that sounds like. But I won‘t ever give up and I‘m trusting the process. It will all work out in the end. In September I will leave for 1,5 months of vacation to different places and I think it will be a great way to open up my mind for new exciting things 🙏🏻 I just wanted to share this with you because I believe in the concept of vulnerability. But please don‘t be concerned 💕
my favorite sticker/postcard design for the #ilovemydexcom challenge from Dexcom Germany. What do you think? 💬
I was thinking of my #spoonie friends so I edited the design 🙏🏻
So Dexcom Germany gave me and some blogger friends the opportunity to design diabetes-related postcards and stickers and I‘ve been experimenting with photoshop today. This is one result, what do you think? 💬

#DBW2018 - I‘m sexy and I know it 😏 Doing a little social media detox but this photo fits just perfect for today‘s theme of the german diabetes blog week. 
My flatmates and me went skinny dipping the other day and I like that I can see my sensor and omnipod as parts of me - I don‘t even really think about them often, I mostly just notice on photos that I was wearing my robot parts 😅 I mean I obviously know that I‘m wearing them but it‘s like having a nose or ears or whatever 🤷🏻‍♀️
summer time with diabetes on display - lately I noticed more and more people staring at me and the funny little things on my arms. A few years back I‘d hated the extra attention but nowadays I couldn‘t care less. Diabetes doesn‘t define me but it sure is a part of me and I‘m not afraid to show it off. At best people ask me about it & I can raise awareness 💬🤖 🦄
doing what diabetes advocates can do best besides advocating - taking selfies with @lisa.betes at diabetes events 😁 also @schoenheitderchance is silently judging us in the back 😂
love my #diacommunity 💕
