Scott – “Scott’s Diabetes”
Scott was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April of 1980 when he was approximately 5-years-old. In order to make sense of the “psychological baggage” that comes with having to manage type 1 diabetes on a daily basis, Scott started to keep track of his type 1 life in February of 2000 by way of a journal and records. As blogging tools evolved, Scott took his writings online in late 2004, offering “an honest and open account” of his life with type 1 diabetes. A definite highlight of his web site are his published A1C records, which date back to 1981. Scott is actively involved in the diabetes community and he makes an effort to connect with other diabetics whenever he can. For example, on his blog he writes about having dinner with Kathy White, a type 1 who underwent an islet cell transplant. Visit Scott’s Blog: “Scott’s Diabetes”.

No small change
I pay attention when something sticks in my head. I guess that’s the nature of it sticking in my head, right? It won’t leave me alone until I do something about it. Last week Kerri posted on Facebook about Meri’s beautiful story called “There is no such thing as small… Read More

38th Diaversary
Today makes 38 (!!) years of living with type 1 diabetes. While diabetes itself is nothing to celebrate, each year I make a point to acknowledge and celebrate (even if just internally) all of the hard work I do to take good care of myself. It’s never easy, and diabetes is always a lot of… Read More

Staying hydrated with The Right Cup
Fun brain tricks that help me drink more water. I am trying to drink more water. I’m not abandoning Diet Coke (never that), but I think it’d be a good idea for me to drink more water, too. So when the folks at “The Right Cup™” asked if I’d like to take a look at… Read More
