Blogs – Type 1 diabetes

Hello and welcome to my blog page. On this page you will see links to articles that I’ve written about being a parent to a type 1 diabetic child. I left the corporate world last year to pursue a writing career and the purpose of my blogs is to help raise awareness as to what type 1 diabetes is and what it involves on a day to day basis as a parent.

Happy reading and may magic, laughter and insulin follow you wherever you may go.
