Scott Strange has been a Type 1 diabetic since 1970. Strangely Diabetic is his story of how diabetes has affected his life and how his life was changed when he learned that he wasn’t alone in this chronic condition. Scott wants to share his experiences with other diabetics, so they can hopefully avoid some of the things that made him truly suffer. Diabetes was probably the least of those things.
He advocates for patients to become actively engaged, not only in managing their condition, but in stepping forward to lead their healthcare team and to communicate with others either online or in person.
It took him nearly 40 years to realize that he was not alone in living with diabetes. At the time, Scott didn't even know that he needed the support of other diabetics who truly understand, but he finally found the support he needed and it has changed his life.
Blogging and participating in the Diabetic Online Community is Scott's way of giving a little back to all those who have helped him.
