Inspired by the rich and varied accounts of Diabetic life in the blogrolls, I decided to make my own blog to document my experiences with Type 1 diabetes. I was diagnosed in 2003, and have been using a Minimed insulin pump since shortly after diagnosis. I’m in my late twenties, married, and determined to acquire a more complete knowledge of my disease, and of its effects on my body. While diabetes has changed my life, I refuse to let it define my life.

I also would like to add a thank you on this inaugural post to all the bloggers who have spoken so clearly and candidly about their illness and the mark it leaves on their lives. Reading your stories has been inspirational to me. Thank you for taking the time to share them so eloquently.
