I'm a 29 yr old type 1 diabetic with a minimed 522 insulin pump and cgms to keep me going. Literally. My margarita spike (above) is indicative of what it's like to live with diabetes. I live in Chicago and have a husband who makes me giggle and whom I adore. I also have a golden retriever that accompanies me on walks to the beach. I've learned all I needed to know from the diabetes online community and I wanted to become part of it. Thus- my blog.
