    Hi Amina!

    It’s so nice to see your blog. I was recently diagnosed (at 30) and I’m also a biomedical scientist (postdoc) suddenly so interested in T1DM and a mother ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep up the good work!
    Very inspiring!

    1. Thank you so much. I’ve been pretty bad with the blogging since my second baby but I plan on doing a lot more. Thank you for the encouragement. I really appreciate it.

    Hi Amina! My name is Delaney, I am 15 years old, and I am a Type One Diabetic as well! Your blog is really cool, I am glad to have found it! I also have a blog, I use it to give support and info to children with diabetes. The URL is http://www.thebetesblog.com and it is through WordPress, so feel free to check it out and maybe even follow me! Thanks!


    1. Hi Delaney it’s really nice to connect with you. I’m so glad you like my blog. I just followed you and I’m heading over right now to check your blog out. I hope that we can share and learn from each others experiences with the D. How long have you had diabetes? Thank you for stopping by xx

        I have a fairly new diagnosis, I was diagnosed about two years ago. I also wanted to say that I also really love science! I want to be a pediatric endocrinologist in the future, so I am working towards that.


      2. Oh really! I love science a bit too much hahahaa. Wow that would be a great profession to go into. You can do it girl.! If your mind is right and you work hard you will be successful. How are you finding the D? Do you wear a pump? Sensor? Injection? I’ve been a pump user now for the past 4 years and Im doing a trial run with the sensor.

        Diabetes for me has just been another obstacle to overcome. I had a lot of health issues when I was very young, so I guess that that prepared me for dealing with the D. It is a pain, but as you know, you can’t afford to loosen the reins or let it defeat you. I am currently still on the shots. I take small amounts of insulin, and for me to be on the pump my insulin would have to be diluted. But that costs a lot more money, so I’m saying no to that for now.


      4. I love your attitude towards the D. I feel exactly the same way about it. Yes I’ve had my challenges with it but I’m patient with it and I try my best to stay positive about it. You definitely have to keep a tight rein on it. Are you state side? I’m in the UK
