I wish these Tips would be posted all year long and not just for Diabetes Awareness month... I can’t even begin to tell you how many of my friends and family who know I am diabetic have NO IDEA what i...t “really” means to be T1. People have expressed to me “wow, thanks to your posting of the Tips, I feel closer to you...” See More

Rebecca Boening is feeling blessed with Tina Hardy at Burger King (4210 I-40 West, Amarillo, TX).

Wednesday afternoon I was driving west on I-40 when my blood sugar dropped to a dangerous level. Luckily a Burger King restaurant was at the upcoming exit. As I... stumbled through placing my order I mentioned to the voice on the speaker that I was diabetic and in need of food. Low blood sugar makes it difficult to think or act. I pulled up to the first window in order to pay for my food. I was shocked to see Burger King employee Tina Hardy running toward the front of my car. She squeezed between the front of my car and the building just to bring me a small serving of ice cream. Tina later explained that her husband was also diabetic and she could tell that I needed help. After paying I pulled up to Tina’s window where she gave me my food. She instructed me to park across the driveway so that she could keep an eye on me until I felt better. After eating I waited for a break in business so that I could return to Tina’s window. I then took this picture and spoke with Tina’s supervisor, telling him what she did for me. If you appreciate what this special woman did please share this story. Hopefully Tina Hardy will receive the recognition that she truly deserves from the public and from the big bosses at Burger King.

Howdy from Amarillo, Texas. I hope each and every one of you are having a blessed holiday season. I have set up a fundraiser for Tina Hardy after it came to my attention that this hero doesn’t have a car. Please help me say thank you in a way that will change her life. Please donate at

Meet Brave Maeve, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 18 months old.

"It is a heavy burden for an adult to carry, let alone a kid," her mom confessed. "And that's why we want a cure."

Low blood sugar affects many functions. A person may slow down, appear intoxicated and they certainly won't listen well. And they may even tell you they don't need to check their blood sugar.

When a person with Type 1 Diabetes has low blood glucose levels, they must eat fast acting carbs to raise it to safe levels. Juice, mints, skittles . . . you'd be surprised at the snacks we manage to scrounge up.
