This is LOVE Calling

First - I  need your help!  

I have a little Valentine Surprise planned for the DOC!  

All I need from you is a picture of your CWD or yourself if you're a Type 1.  Include first names and diagnosis dates.  And email them to me at:
theprincessandthepump@gmail.com

** And don't forget to enter my give away to win a super sweet pj pump pouch from Too Sweet Boutique!  Click HERE to enter!**

Second - We had a really nice day off of work/school that we spent running errands and watching movies!  We hopped in the car this morning and guess what the first song we heard was?

Get Back Up by Toby Mac


It's playing right now on my playlist.


Listen to the lyrics...


You turned away when I looked you in the eye,
And hesitated when I asked if you were alright,
Seems like you're fighting for you life,
But why? oh why?
Wide awake in the middle of your nightmare,
You saw it comin' but it hit you outta no where,
And there's always scars
When you fall that far

We lose our way,
We get back up again
It's never too late to get back up again,
One day you will shine again,
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever,
Lose our way,
We get back up again,
So get up, get up,
You're gonna shine again,
Never too late to get back up again,
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever

After my post, Concealer, yesterday?  How appropriate!

And thank you for all the sweet, kind comments...  I truly appreciate it.  The fact that you take the time to leave me a note AND that you can relate!

So - since I seem to be the Delilah of the DOC, I thought I would dedicate this song to all you.

To all of you who are in three day old sweats...

To all of you who haven't showered...

To all of you with dark circles...


To all of you who can't fit into your pre-dx clothes...


To all of you who don't recognize yourself in the mirror...


To all of you who put everything and everyone else in front of yourself...


This is for you.


Maybe we have scars...  Maybe we've lost our way...
Maybe we feel like we ARE wide awake in the middle of our nightmare...


It's never too late.


We WILL shine again.


We've just got to get up!

  1. I loved your last post... it was brilliant. And btw, I just washed my hair yesterday after a week. You heard me... A WEEK! Thank goodness for dry, thick hair that doesn't get oily, right?

    What is the deadline to get the pics to you?

  4. Loved your last post...could relate so, so much. I feel as though I have huge battle scars forming as we speak, and I don't know how to go about buffing them out. I'm working on it.

    Hugs! I'll have to send out a pic to you. your surprise sounds intriguing!

  5. I saw your post earlier (concealer) and wanted to comment as it was a kick in the arse for me, but just couldn't think of how to respond. I am so there but feel like I have no great advice. I'm with you in that I've gained more weight post dx than I did in either of my pregnancies. I have no energy to be with friends or be friendly...
    sooo...
    I'd love to hear your ideas on how to make time to remedy these seemingly common mama pancreas probs.
    Have a fab week.

  7. LOVE Toby Mac! We have 3 degrees of separation from him.....my daughter's friend's mom is his cousin. Tried asking for a signature once, no luck. Oh well, at least we have a tidbit!
