Living with Type 1 Diabetes
This blog is all about the ups and downs when living with type 1 diabetes. We try to focus on the ups, but let’s be real, having an auto-immune disease is not something that makes life easier.

We address everything from the everyday struggles to awesome accessories for diabetics and more!
