Karen – “Bitter Sweet”
Karen lives in Connecticut with her husband, her adorable cat, and “lots and lots of yarn”. Her blog Bitter Sweet is aptly named since it reflects her approach to life as a type 1, recognizing that “life with diabetes isn’t all bad.” Karen’s posts cover everything from looking for a new endocrinologist to her experiences with low blood sugars and sick days. She is an avid knitter and she also runs the blog MostlySelfTaughtKnitter.com, which explains the yarn. Visit Karen’s Blog: “Bitter Sweet”.
