after your diabetes diagnosis,

it's normal to feel

it's overwhelming. I've been there, too.

let's be diabuddies

I felt all of those same things when I was misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and then re-diagnosed with LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults) – A slow progressing form of autoimmune Type 1 diabetes.

I was frustrated, angry, misunderstood, overwhelmed, and over the whole thing. My life changed overnight without warning (twice). I didn’t want to feel that way anymore. And I don't want you to, either.

Who wants to feel like they can’t eat the foods they enjoy? Or that they aren’t working hard enough for in-range blood sugar numbers? In the beginning, I struggled to find approachable resources to help me manage diabetes on a day-to-day basis.

So, I created this diabetes blog as a FREE resource to help you get unstuck, reduce the stigma and misinformation about diabetes, and most of all, put your mind at ease about your new life.

So let’s talk about food, self-care, and diabetes topics that sometimes feel like they’re off-limits. This is an open and safe space for you.

I'm glad you're here.

"This is the exact type of video I was looking for! My best friend was just diagnosed and I wanted to find videos of people talking about their diagnosis and adjustment to their diagnosis so I can try to understand this time for him. Thank you for this!!"
