I am a 28 year old woman living in rural New Hampshire. I have Type 1 Diabetes, diagnosed in November of 2011 I have gone through a lot of learning and adjusting. I have all the standard diabetes paraphernalia, (insulin, needles, test kit, test strips, insulin pump*, glucose tablets etc.) with one exception. My best, most accurate tool- my dog Judah. He is a rescue dog that I adopted and “take care of” but really he taught himself to take care of me! We have a very special relationship and he has taught me a lot. This blog is my way to reach out to other people like me and to educate those who aren’t like me. It also gives me a chance to vent out all the things that make diabetes lame, frustrating, agonizing, discouraging, and sometimes, isolating. Sometimes writing it out gives you perspective, but it also allows other people to gain some perspective.
This has been a wild adventure and now you can join us!
Don’t forget to go back in the archives and read “Judah’s Journey” (4 parts) about how I found Judah and how he began his amazing Service Dog work, he is a special boy and has a special story! Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
*This is a new addition to my arsenal and so far, I am a big fan!
P.S. I don’t always (don’t usually) proof read my posts until a little while after I publish them- don’t hold it against me!
