About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Nursing Assistant
Location Twin Cities, MN, United States
Introduction I am here to get back into the act of journaling. I am a type 1 diabetic for 19 years, and I have been using a Minimed pump for five years with a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) for three years on and off. I love the pump and CGM! I am constantly learning and re-learning how to manage diabetes. Right now I am as a nursing station tech (NA and HUC roles blended together) at a hospital. I like to spend my free time with my boyfriend Matt, nephews Devin and Levi (twins!), my friends and my family. I also really enjoy reading novels, listening to music, hiking, and watching movies.
Interests Diabetes, insulin pumps, cats, novels, movies, partner dancing, concerts, health care.
Favorite Movies Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, All the Harry Potters, Closer, Adaptation, The Green Mile, Cast Away, to name a few all time favorites.
Favorite Music It varies from day to day. In general jazz in my car, pop for working out, and alternative/contemporary for around the house.
Favorite Books Contact, Harry Potter series, I Know This Much is True, The Hour I First Believed, The Things They Carried, Prodigal Summer, and many more...
