They call me Melanie, and I’ve had T1 diabetes since 1992, got my first Animas pump in 2001, switched to Tandem in 2013, and have used my Dexcom 24/7 since 2009. Welcome to my blog!
I currently live in Boston, Mass with my boyfriend of nearly a billion years (M) and I work as an R&D chemist at a tiny start-up company. Previously, I’ve lived in South Bend, IN (grad school), small town NE (undergrad), and Waukesha, WI (my first home). This blog came to be after moving to a new “big” city and learning to adapt D to a more pedestrian lifestyle while making new friends and assimilating to a new job.
I write infrequently; whenever I feel I have something to contribute. I am a nerd and a technophile as may be apparent here and here and would welcome suggestions for new D-topics to research and write about int he future.
Thanks for visiting!
