Getting Found in Lost Cove

Here’s a link to a recent article from Blue Ridge Outdoors online that I wrote after a backpacking trip with a bunch of friends in the Wilson’s Creek area of NC. It reminded me how much my friends care about my health and well-being and the way that Type 1 makes me think on my feet!

This is my friend Laura and I, super excited about life and the trail!

  1. I am so impressed with your blog on Type 1 Diabetes and the adventures you go on. I’ve been type 1 for 25 years and I too love a good adventure. I got chills reading about your hike over Sams Knob and Black Balsam. That’s where my backpacking/hiking days began. I too live in the Carolinas. It’s so refreshing to read that someone has the same “issues” I do and can relate to what it’s like on the trail and while I yoga. I swear it was like reading a page out of my own book. I was literally laughing out loud (and I needed it). Lately, this whole Type 1 crap has gotten me a bit down. My Omnipod isn’t working out as well as my Medtronic pump and I’ve felt really negatively about life in general. I love your positivity!

  2. Thanks so much for reading and for your thoughtful comment Andrea! Being positive is a major coping strategy for me – I definitely go through rough times with diabetes as well and I’m sorry you’ve been feeling one lately. I am excited to read more of your entries as it seems like you’ve started a great new adventure!
