Nicole Purcell

Nicole Purcell lists having type 1 diabetes last when she's asked to provide information about herself - because that's where it belongs.

She is, first and foremost, a daughter, sister, aunt, partner, and friend and a professional fundraiser, writer, advocate, and dancer. Diabetes is both incidental and central in her life - an afterthought that makes its way front and center more often than she'd like it to.

A native New Englander, Nicole has worked as a fundraising executive for various non-profit organizations since 1997 and is a Tropigal with Chifferobe Productions, a vintage performance company.

Nicole's has made another attempt at monkey training after her first miserable attempt. She is obsessed now with lesser known classical artists and the memoir of Leslie Caron.

Swollen Finger...


My finger is swollen. Just the tip of the my right middle finger. It's probably twice it's normal size and red. Yesterday I was pretty sure I just had a hang nail going on, but today I am convinced it's infected. No. Fun.

More than the way the finger looks is the way my sugar (READ MORE)




Random High Bloodsugars


I've had a few days of random high bloodsugars. My diet hasn't changed much and I'm still far enough away from my cycle that it shouldn't be that, I'm exercising just as much (if not a litte more). But there they are, these random bloodsugars of 260 mg/dl or greater.

They're no (READ MORE)




Food and Its Tricks


Occasionally, I allow myself a treat. Something I really shouldn't even consider eating. I figure if I get a little bit of the stuff that should be off limits, it'll prevent eventual binges that lead to soaring bloodsugars and usually a shake up in my belly as well. But man, it's tough to take th (READ MORE)
