Hi! My name is Amina, I’m a diabetes blogger and a type 1 diabetic who begun this blogging journey to share my experiences with the condition.
I live in Manchester, United Kingdom. I am not a medical professional. However since my diagnosis 23 years ago I’ve been determined to learn as much as I can about my condition. I graduated with honours in Biomedical Sciences, I’ve worked in several types of research laboratories, also as a Healthcare Assistant and I am passionate about becoming a Physician Associate.
I enjoy drawing, traveling, discovering new foods and places. I love learning new languages. Currently I’m learning Korean and I’m totally obsessed with Korean dramas.
I’m always active, whether I’m busy chasing my children around, doing my everyday mummy duties, working or just working out. I enjoy Yoga, Pilates, swimming and use the gym occasionally. I’ve learnt that being active, eating right and close monitoring of my sugars plays a major part to being able to keep my diabetes under control.
My blog is a way for me to raise more awareness for diabetes. I want to be able to share my experiences as a type 1 diabetic, as a working mother with diabetes, the frustrations I’ve had, the highs and lows, eating healthy and working out, current research and just day-to-day living with this testing condition. I also want to connect with others who are living with their diabetes, struggling with their diabetes, people who maybe have no knowledge of what diabetes is. Also maybe I can learn more from other about my condition and things which may help me now and in the future to better my relationship with diabetes.
Thank you for visiting my blog. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on my posts. Or if you’d prefer you can also contact me via email @firstname.lastname@example.org
