My name is Lizmari Collazo.
I am a Puerto Rican, living in Iowa. A lover of white picket fences, black cats, Winter, and photography. I am a 35 year old who was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes two years ago, on November 17th, 2009, with an A1C of 10.5%.
Those are the numbers that "define" me, but they do not tell my story in full. The journey toward my diagnosis was a rocky, and complicated one, and it is my goal that others would learn, and grow from my experiences.
I am not a doctor, nor a medical professional of any kind, so please do not take my musings as a "diagnosis" or as a treatment for any medical condition, at any time. If you should have any concerns regarding any health problems you may be experiencing, please contact your medical team, or a qualified medical professional in your area, as soon as possible.
