Introduction My Diabetesalicious Life. A T1 Diabetic since age 8, diagnosed on Halloween/Parents anniversary - talk about timing! My greatest weakness (my broken pancreas) has become my greatest strength & biggest passion. I'm a Diabetes Advocate, Blogger,Writer Speaker, Humorist, Consultant. Diabetes is a huge weed whose tendrils have wrapped around my family tree. In my immediate family of eight, 4 of us were diagnosed with T1. Me, my dad, 2 of my sisters, my nephew, 2 of my Aunts & 1 cousin. My mothers Grand Mother suffered from Type 1,and possibly a great uncle. Genetically speaking,we are medical oddities. My sister Debbie died from diabetic complications in 1991 at the age of 33. She suffered for 10 years and had been a diabetic for almost 25. I think about her everyday and I wish her life had been different. I love the ocean, believe laughter is key and I dont take this life for granted and do the work required to live my best life. I laugh every day and am passionately spreading the word about living a great life w/Diabetes!
