It's late, but I'm on a healthy stream of consciousness that usually results in good writing, so here goes.
I'm a Type 1 Diabetic. Diagnosed May 6, 2001.
I probably have never mentioned this before, but it's 2011, and with the 10 year anniversary on the horizon, I have decided that it is time for me to open up, help and do whatever I can to guide people with the disease.
As a journalist, it would surprise you to know that I'm reserved and quiet(a rebel to the journalism industry I know). When I wrote the story about my life through diabetes for my school newspaper last year, I teared up a bit.
I manage well, but everyone is different. With that said, this year I want to touch at least one person who has diabetes. New diagnosis' crowd the Joe Di Maggio Hospital(where I was diagnosed) in Hollywood every week and it doesn't get easier.
If I'm not writing a story, look for me at something Diabetes related; soon.
