World Diabetes Day: Eleven Things I’ve Learned Since My Diagnosis

So, it’s World Diabetes Day today and it’s almost two months to the day since I was diagnosed with Type 1. Like I said in my previous post about the worst three days of my life, I’m still processing and still dealing with everything that’s going on, attempting to understand why my blood sugar acts in the way that it does.

August – A Busy Month Chasing My Dream

August – A Busy Month Chasing My Dream

What a month August has been! So as I previously made you aware in my last post, the digitized version of my collection of short stories has been released on the Amazon Kindle store – cue shameless plug: *Fanfare music* This was my first step into self-publishing and chasing my dream of becoming an author.
