A friend recently sent this great article about a young woman trianing for the Olympics that has T1D. It inspired me on many levels.
I was recently a guest on Ronda Arndorfer’s Healthy is Wealthy podcast. We both share a journey of frustration with the healthcare system. And we both found ways to make significant meaningful changes on our own. The result? Better health and more peace in our lives!
My Diaversary was 28 years ago. In the diabetes life, your diaversary is when your diabetes started. An anniversary of diabetes. The first day I took insulin was the day after Independence Day. The irony never escapes me. I became insulin dependent the day after Independence Day.
“What have you done, that doctors said you shouldn’t or couldn’t do?” It is not often the easy thing, but life isn’t about always doing the easy things.
I must admit, I have fired several of my diabetes doctors over the years . None of them for their lack of clinical skills, but all of them for their lack of respect and understanding.
On the heels of Memorial Day, I think it is fitting to remember these souls who are gone too soon from diabetes,solely due to the cost of insulin.
