In the 850 days since I started full-time at CDN doing communications and operations, I could tell you that I’ve gone through 283 Omnipods, 121 Dexcom sensors, and probably a million packages of fruit snacks.

Four years ago, I wished I could have said goodbye to the day I found out I had type 1 diabetes. I wished I could have erased the entire trek to the hospital, and the moment an endocrinologist broke the diagnosis to me, from my memory. I wished that the illness was something I could just buy a pill for and make disappear. Adjusting to the new lifestyle was the hardest task I’ve ever faced; I remember when diabetes burnout hit me like a freight train. But here I stand today, proud that March 15… Read more
