I want to share the successes and failures of life with Type 1 diabetes to help you live a fuller, healthier, WILDER life.
Let’s thrive with diabetes together.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on November 15, 1999 at five years old. Both my parents and I were terrified. I was just trying to understand what was happening; my parents wondered what this news meant for me and at what capacity I’d live my life moving forward.
Diabetes sucks. It’s never easy and constantly in the way. It’s a 24/7/365 job that always wants to take from you. But, diabetes can teach you so many lessons if you choose to learn from it and not let diabetes slow you down.
As a diabetic, I played in high school football, competed at Nationals for Penn State Powerlifting, bagged peaks in Montana, rafted through Alaska, spent hundreds if not thousands of nights in a tent, and so much more.
I am blessed every day to live a full and wild life. I know the struggles you’re going through, and I want to share those successes and failures with you along the way. Let’s thrive with diabetes together.
