While this is my blog where I talk about personal stuff, I also want this to be a place where everyone can talk about their own experience! My experience with diabetes isn’t the same as yours! So please, if you feel like you have something valuable to say feel free to submit your story using the form below:

Diabetes and Me

What’s up! I’m Jay and I’m part cyborg. And by cyborg, I mean that I have a couple little robots that are working to help me live. And by a couple little robots, I mean an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor. When it comes to everything else, I’m pretty much human. But hey, I wouldn’t say no to a robotic arm (think Cyborg from DC or Bucky from Marvel).

I’d say that my life is pretty regular apart from the whole type 1 diabetes thing. I mean, I feel like it’s a pretty normal thing (at least it is for me on the account that I’ve lived with it my entire life), but I’ve found that some people get a little uncomfy when the topic comes up.

Especially when it comes to dating. I’m a little tired of being looked at like I’m broken, but honestly I was just born this way. To me I don’t feel broken, I feel minority inconvenienced.

I wanted to make a blog where I – and other people with Type 1 or 2 – can talk about our experiences with this disease.

To hell with the stigma of invisible illness!

Hope you enjoy my blog and learn a little something about Type 1!
