I have had type 1 brittle Diabetes for over 30 yrs. I was 24 yrs. old at the time. Many advances have occurred since that time.When I first became Diabetic I was neurotic about it. I never relaxed I was always stressed out.I tried to be perfect with it all the time.Until I came to terms with the fact that there is no perfect.
I have over the course of time developed a lot of patience with myself and the disease.
I am currently single and live in South Florida on the beach.
I spend most of my time taking care of my Diabetes and over all health. I am very much into holistic practices and natural health. I am particular about my diet and eat as much natural or unprocessed foods as possible. I have always had and still have recurring issues with low sugars. I also have hypoglycemic unawareness which is sometimes very stressful!! I have to practice meditations and stress free living everyday because i find that the disease itself is stressful and after having it for 31 yrs. 24/7 with no break from it I can easily get burned out from the ongoing everyday drill! I have had to modify my lifestyle a lot to maintain better mental, emotional health.
I am a very open and positive person and very willing to help others.
