On the Road with “The Brimley”


So this week I’ve been a traveling diabetic. Our tour started Monday night in Auburn, Alabama, and from there we went to Nashville and last night played in Birmingham. We have a long drive today to Savannah and we plan to do what we always do on long road trips: Anytime we stop for gas, we check and see if the gas station sells compact discs, and if they do, we purchase the worst-looking one.

Sweating and Diabetes: The Tale of My Fake Snakeskin Pants


Another week has gone by, and for you regular readers who were left hanging at the end of last week’s blog entry, we ended up using a combination of powdered sugar and Sweet’N Low for fake cocaine in our video shoot.

Birthdays, Vistors, and a Solid Meal


This week is the most important week of the year. Why is that, you ask? Well, it’s my wife’s birthday this Sunday. Not good enough? How about that it’s my niece Sara Reeves’s birthday on Monday.

I’ll be sure to take him an extra NovoLog FlexPen the next time I travel to Alabama (he also has diabetes). Read More “Birthdays, Vistors, and a Solid Meal”

Regular Doctor Visits?


This week has been another busy one and will continue to be busy into the weekend. Jon Murray and I plan to shoot our second music video for this Saturday. We’ve hired a group of professional dancers and some old friends from our sketch comedy group to help us out. I also scheduled an appointment with my endocrinologist and realized that I haven’t seen her in over a year. Read More “Regular Doctor Visits?”

Diabetes in the Altitude


I spent the last week in Crested Butte, Colorado, for what has now become an annual family ski trip. The place we were staying was at an elevation of 7,000-something feet. Of course, my mom told us to drink plenty of water and take saltwater nose drops to flush the system out. All of this is fine and dandy, but I wondered what, if any, effect does altitude have on diabetes? Read More “Diabetes in the Altitude”
