Hi, there. I'm Juliet. 

In 1992, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and my life was turned upside down at the age of 5. Diabetes hasn't been easy, but it's sure made things interesting. Growing up, I was the only diabetic I knew, and I became my own little advocate. To this day, I try to advocate and fight for this disease. 

Over the years, I've dealt with MDI, insulin pens, no insulin adventures, international pump problems, early CGMs, all types of pumps (Disetronic anyone?), diabetes sleep away camp, tubing mishaps on rollercoasters...the list goes on and on. I'm currently on the newest Dexcom G5 sensor and the tubeless Omnipod. My journey with diabetes has lead me to become extremely interested in fitness and nutrition. I hope to share all of this stuff {and life stuff} with you all here. Diabetes isn't easy, but it's a lot easier with others! 

I'm an elementary school teacher with a terrible sweet tooth {which doesn't help with my rollercoaster Dexcom graphs}, but it does make for a nice blog title. 

Disclosure: I'm not a doctor and the information on this blog should not be considered as medical advice. It is what works for me and my doctor. I'm happy to answer any questions about the how/why of my care, but please talk with your own doctor before taking any steps with yours.
