About

Thanks for visiting my site and reading about my experiences as a person living with Type 1 Diabetes! The idea for this site was born on a backpacking trip in the mountains of Western North Carolina, when I decided I wanted to share the knowledge and experiences I had gained after living with Type 1 Diabetes for what had been, at the time, about 6 years. At first I wrote mostly about managing Type 1 Diabetes while doing outdoor adventure sports, but I’ve found that all of life with T1D is an adventure, so now I write about¬†everything: traveling, working, being a grad student, managing relationships, and just living, fully, with Type 1 Diabetes. I’m 11 years into life with T1D and still learning every day! Thanks again for reading. Please share your thoughts and comments with me and please share this blog with anyone you think would enjoy it.

  1. I’ve been T1D only for about two years now and have just recently come across your blog. Just wanted to tell you how incredible your blog is and how much it means to me to read your stories/posts. When I was first diagnosed, I had the same pit in my stomach: anticipating that my life could never be spontaneous, that I could never adventure, that I was going to be cemented within the confines of this disease. I am so happy to know there are individuals who do not allow T1D inhibit them and their wanderlust. It is hard to realize that these things are still possible. Thank you for showing that they are. Please keep posting.

    1. Hi Alisa! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the blog! Hearing that my blog resonates with other people is my #1 motivation for writing, so thanks so much for sharing your kind words! Also, you may enjoy some of the blogs on my ‘Inspiration Station’ tab at the top – I’m still working on adding resources, but I’ve listed a few blogs from other T1 adventurers there.
