Empowerment and T1D
I have always been drawn to empowerment. Growing up, I loved the theatre, I loved the ballet, I loved all forms of performance.

Playing the Rare Disease Card
Parenting a kid with special needs requires a lot of writing. It seems like I’m constantly writing, which is ok because… well, I’m a writer. Sitting at my desk typing a blog post is far less stress-inducing than the painful daily scribble that comes along with a rare genetic disorder. Early...

The Shoulder Flop
Keeping our kids safe is every parent’s number one job. Even as an adult I associate protection and safety with my childhood home and my loving parents. It’s a great relief when our children finally learn where to go and who to find when they’re in danger. More than a relief, it’s a proud...

The Unmatched Courage That Comes From Chronic Disease
A little over a year ago, after resisting the idea for almost a decade, I finally started working with a type one diabetes (T1D) focused non-profit. T1D was already 100% of my life and I hadn’t wanted it to become even more, but after almost two decades with the disease, I gave into the fact ...

Instagram Has Been A Lifesaver Since My T1D Diagnosis
I was 28 when I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Like most people, I grew up not really understanding the difference. I thought there was one you got as a child, and one you got as an adult. There is no history of diabetes or autoimmune disease in my family, so honestly, I never really gave ...
