Dex and the City

There are hundreds of diabetes blogs out there – hundreds of people have opened up their lives to share their hopes and fears with the “world” in hopes that someone might read them and feel a little less alone.  I am no different than the rest of these people.  I have had type one diabetes for almost 20 years now – that’s over 80% of my life.  After avoiding D for most of my adolescence, I have finally reigned in the monster.

Like many, my introduction to the DOC began with a Google search of something D-related that brought me to Kerrry’s infamous sixuntilme blog.  From there I found a few other blogs that I could relate to, began to chat on Twitter, post picture on Flickr, and was finally a part of community who would share in my D-successes and failures.

I started on Dex just over 6 months ago.  Since then, my A1c has dropped from 8.something to 6.1 and I finally feel comfortable in my D-skin.  Then, a month ago, I moved to Boston from the Midwest and am now learning to live life as a diabetic pedestrian.  So, that’s the story of “Dex and the City.”
