It’s Cancer of the Lymphatic System
I was sat in the ENT department waiting room, dreading hearing my name being called. It all began a month earlier. I had just arrived back home from a long overdue honeymoon. I was well rested and eager to get back to my dream job, which I had not long started. This is when I noticed several ...

Oh No, I’m low!
Being a Type 1 Diabetic for almost eight years now, it’s second nature. Nothing phases me anymore, not even ignorant comments or grueling routine blood draws. As anyone reading this post who either has T1D, or is close to a T1D, knows, there becomes a point where it just becomes a part of you....

Coming of Age With Chronic Illness and Mental Health
Usually, there’s more than one thing going on in life. But sometimes you or the people in your life put all of the focus on one thing. For me, that focus has often been my type 1 diabetes (T1D). I’ve done this, but so have the people in my life and the rest of the world around me. I firmly ...

Real Talk With Dave: Hopeful For A Cure
We all have a desire to be cured of this monster of a disease, Type 1 Diabetes. Since the day we were diagnosed, that has been our number one wish when we blow out the candles on our birthday cake or when we play that imaginary game of being asked what our three wishes from a Genie would be. We ...

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.

Slow Down Sugar!
It was my sophomore year of high school. I was sitting in chemistry class first period Monday morning. My energy level had hit rock bottom. My body felt so heavy, as if I was one hundred feet underwater. I was so nauseous, but I didn’t think I could stand to ask if I could be excused. It was ...

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...
