Tell us more about you (optional)
I enjoy belly dance, hiking, and cooking food that makes me feel awesome. I'm currently studying usability and interface oriented software design as well as working on my undergrad in CS.

I have not had a period of peace with my body since diagnosis, and I would love to meet others who need help coping as well. Right now diabetes interferes with my ability to do any of the things that I love, and I have a burning desire to change that fact.

My short term diabetes goals are to get on a pump and to stick to foods that make my blood sugar management easier, and to ultimately keep this disease from having a monopoly on my attention.
