I have Type 1 diabetes. I love to write. I’m happy when I am helping others. I speak up when it’s important. I have a passion for sharing knowledge and learning new technology. I was BORN to BLOG!

And then I met other T1Ds who are cool and love to help others. We put our heads and hearts together … to bring more resources and knowledge to our amazing diabetes community.

And thank you for stopping by!
