Tuff Band: Denise: "Bean has some girly ID bracelets that she loves, but I think she totally needs something to reflect her tough side, too."

  10. Adjusting to diabetes at this time in my life is challenging, but I can't imagine how tough it would be for a parent of a T1 child: you folks are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  11. It's a tough disease, even with a lot of work, dedication, complication, and tears, but everyday all of us (whether we've got it or love someone who does), prove that diabetes is not tough enough to beat us!

    ReplyDelete
  12. When the go and get tough, the tough get going... to the interwebs... for pictures of unicorns and cupcakes and all things DOC related

  14. My fingertips are tough after 50,000 blood sugar checks.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ahhh, cool! I love orange (and other bright colors), so the clutch bag is right up my alley. I'm also fond of this new craft fad with parachute cord in bracelets, so those are cool too.

    Cool stuff like this makes being a fashionable T1 that doesn't stand out like a sore thumb not so tough, even when controlling the numbers is tough. ;)

  16. Diabetes is tough and it has made ME tough too—just one of the many reasons I have found to appreciate it. I would LOVE the tuff clutch :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. My fingers are tough..and I am too! (with the help of DOC friends)

  21. T1D has made me tough also, until it makes me cry at commercials w/ cute animals and almost every episode of Ellen. Then my daughter just laughs at me for not being so tough. Oh diabetes you are strange.

  22. In the beginnings of my new life with diabetes, I told my family "I'm one tough broad, I can do this". & that was ling before I came upon the YCDTP, I would love the Tuff Case:)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  28. I never think of myself as tough until full-grown men that I know blanch at the sight of me squeezing a tiny blood drop from my finger! Might as well get something cute to put all my tough-girl diabetes accessories in.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's tough being sick when you have diabetes. Now I have to be extra careful that this viral bronchitis doesn't turn into a secondary infection AND bump my basal up to like 150% for the next five days while I'm on steroids! yay!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It is tough to find contest that are open to us Canadians ;) My daughter Cara would LOVE a tuff band. I'm having troubles with her wearing her medical alert bracelet BUT this she would love. Thanks

  31. T1 is tough but the DOC makes it tolerable!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nobody will give me antibiotics even though I'm pretty sure I have a sinus infection going on because I don't have a high enough fever. The medical community and its rules can be tough. At the same time, I thank heaven for them.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Seeing my little girl go thru life doin finger pokes injections, counting carbs is tough but she is tougher she is my hero and dealing with this would be real tough without my friends in the doc!

    ReplyDelete
  34. We tell my T1 daughter all the time that she is super tough! She is the toughest 5 yr old I know!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Diabetes is TOUGH...but cool accessories like these help! Thanks for doing a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  36. When I was first diagnosed, the nurse told my grandparents that if they weren't coffee drinkers, they better become one, because diabetes is so tough and they'd have to get up frequently at night to check on me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. College with diabetes is tough... but pretty bracelets make it easier :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Nothing especially clever, but my little Sunshine girl (age 7) is a tough one!! She's such a trooper. There'll be so many comments, I'm sure no one will see this, but I'm going to brag anyway: She checks her blood sugar herself. She does her shots herself. She's had her CGM for 3 months. She puts in the sensor HERSELF. I offer to help, but she's amazing!!

  40. My T1 daughter's teacher was so impressed with how she managed her diabetes at school, he presented her with a special award at the end of third grade. She was so proud to accept the "Sweet as sugar, tough as nails" award.

  41. Sometimes things are tough. Sometimes I feel tough. Then I go rock climbing, fall over and over and over, get really sore, and don't feel so tough anymore. This is one of those days.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Tough is seeing your coworkers sampling all of the holiday cookies to everyone, and knowing you 1) can try one, but you have to mess with bolusing, ect...and 2) half of them contain NUTS, and whoah, Allergic! That's tough!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Finding a gluten-free diabetes and heart friendly meal at the hospital where my daughter labored was tough. One would think that in a hospital cafeteria finding such would be easy. One would be wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Tough is pretending you don't mind that your friend eats that piece of chocolate cake when your sugar's high or pretending you don't notice the obnoxious stare at your pump all with a smile on your face.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Picture to me tough finding a place for all of my D essentials! I think that you are doing wonderful things here, Kim!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Living with diabetes is tough, carrying around all the D-necessities is tough, and finding pretty D-jewelry is tough. Great idea for a giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  47. tough ;)

    ok, fine, that's a cop-out.

    Bean has some girly ID bracelets that she loves, but I think she totally needs something to reflect her tough side, too.

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's too tough to chose between the tuff cord and the tuff clutch. I don't have anything inspirational to say, I've been T1 for so long now I'm just thrilled for the chance at new diabetes accessories!

  49. Being the mom. Being the nurse. Being the boo boo kisser. Being nocturnal. Being a mathematician. Being a safe place. Being a magician. Being an octopus. Being the dietician. Being a teacher. Being a scientist. Being a cheerleader. Being the monster under the bed finder. Being the voice because his is still a little to small yet. This stuff is not easy. The TOUGH one though....not me. The TOUGH one is my four year old son Danny. He is my superhero!

    The tuff bands are really neat!

  52. Oh diabetes. How I hate how tough you have forced me to be, but that toughness has shaped me into the person I am today, and I wouldn't change that for the world :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. My two year old is tough. He endures this crappy disease and still manages an adorable dimpled grin all day! Diagnosed almost a year ago and just got him to wear a med alert bracelt! Maybe we should try this version too?

    ReplyDelete
  54. So many entries! It's going to be TOUGH to pick a winner :D

  55. T is for the Type of Diabetes I have, #1.
    O is for Orangejuice-glad-I-checked-my-bloodsugar?
    U is for the Ubiquitous nature of Diabetes, sometimes its ubiquitousness is a backseat thing, sometimes front-seat.
    G is for Glucose!..or Grape flavored glucose tabs.
    and H is not for High Blood Sugar but for Hi, thanks for this contest. I'd like aTough Clutch, if there's a choice, on account that I already have a glow in the dark Type 1 Diabetes band and I'm a boy...

    ReplyDelete
  56. The comments/entries/replies are fascinating. It would be fun to win one, but, I'm hoping one of these tough kids win what they want.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Justin doesn't look very "tough" carrying around my Vera Bradly with his things... He would love a boy clutch to "toughen" up ;) but the I'd is good as well, since Justin can't find any of his.
