About

Hello! My name is Chelsea, and I’m 24 years old.

Not quite your average 24 year old, though.. I have 3 devices (one internal, and two external) that are assisting in making this auto immune disease easier to manage. Actually, one of those three is literally my life support.

I’ve been living with type 1 diabetes for 9 years. (October 11, 2007 was the day everything changed).

Diabetically speaking, I have so much to say. I think to myself “I should write about that sometime….oh, and that….oh yeah, AND THAT!” I just want to be real, and honest, with all the good and all the bad, all the highs and the lows. I want to, and will be an open book about living with type 1 diabetes. I’ve always enjoyed writing, but never written about the one thing that’s made me who I am- being type 1. I’m tired of telling myself “I’ll do it someday” and I just want to start putting my stories, and my “oops” moments, my happy moments, scary moments, and overcoming the battle of accepting that I had diabetes in the first pace, etc.. to paper, (or “computer screen”, I should say) about living life as a type one diabetic. And I’ll try my best to keep it entertaining. Some of the stories are pretty funny, I promise.

If my blog and stories shared, lessons learned, etc.. can reach, or help, even just one person also battling type 1, my heart would be overflowed with happiness.

I will always respond to emails! 🙂
