The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes! Whoo! Whoo!

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed back in the early 60's as a child.  I am living in Montreal, Canada and enjoy scribbling about diabetes from time to time. I’ve had my ups / downs just like any person would experience with going through life - diabetic or not.  My motto in life?  Diabetes does not control me – I control it!! 

You can find more posts/discussions at my Facebook page called "The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes" and also on Twitter under the name of FatCatAnna.  Feel free to follow me at both places or send me a private message!

  • Diabetes Blog Week - Thank You Karen



    Mike Lawson from What Some Would Call Lies got a few of the d-bloggers from last week to put together a fantastic vlog of mucho gracious to Karen Graffeo at Bitter~Sweet.  Watching it, brought little happy tears to my eyes. 

    Thanks to Kelly Booth from
    Trials & Tribulations of Being a Type 1 Diabetic who used to blog here at Diabetes1.org for sending this on to me today - since I'm still trying to catch up on all the the blogs from last week - but this one from Mike I think ROCKS (and the tune is very appropriate for us diabetics )!
