With Type 1 Diabetes since 1990, blogging about life with diabetes since 2006. I am here to tell it like it is, add in a dash of humor and geekiness, and always speak with honesty. Having diabetes was so much more tolerable once I discovered the online community that embraced and accepted me. So many people out there really need the message that they're not alone, that many of us have been through the same sorts of things. I welcome dialogue with pharma & healthcare--I am not always the loudest in volume, but I'm full of ideas and opinions.
