About Me

Christopher Snider was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the fall of 2002 during his freshman year at Virginia Tech. For the next four years he coasted through his diabetes management, likely supported by his pancreas' honeymoon phase.

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

On January 1, 2009, he started his own diabetes blog. Five years later he is still blogging, sharing the ups and downs of life (sometimes diabetes-related). He actively participates and advocates on behalf of the diabetes community whenever possible—be it Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, blogging, or even his podcast, he's all about making connections and sharing stories.
