About Me

Occasionally gaming, often podcasting, living with type 1 diabetes.

That's the short version.

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the fall of 2002 during my freshman year at Virginia Tech. For the next 4-ish years I coasted through my diabetes management, likely supported my my pancreas' honeymoon phase.

I didn't join Twitter until 2008 but one of the first people I followed was sharing her experiences with her own diabetes (@sixuntilme). After a few months I started to pay attention to her blog, then other diabetes blogs, then I started sharing my experiences with diabetes on Twitter. Up until this point, I didn't know anything about the diabetes community, or the impact it could have on my life.

January 1, 2009 I started my own diabetes blog. Three years later I'm still blogging, sharing the ups and downs of life (sometimes diabetes related). I actively participate and advocate on behalf of the diabetes community whenever possible - be it Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Blogging, or even my Podcast, I'm all about making connections and sharing stories.

I'm not the most thought-provoking person on the internet, but that hasn't stopped me yet.
