My son Tyler was diagnosed six years ago at the age of four with Type 1 Diabetes. We have been through a lot since then, and continue to battle Type 1 every day. It is a never ending job, and is a constantly changing process.
As the Mom of a kid with Type 1 diabetes, my life is never boring. I have been thinking about starting a Diabetes related blog for a while now. I envision a place where I can vent about Type 1, review products, discuss diabetes in the news and keep a journal of our lives living with this crazy roller coaster of a disease.
I hope that by putting it all down in writing, it will serve as some stress relief for me, and hopefully provide some insight to those in our lives who may wonder what life is really like for Type 1 diabetics and their caregivers.
So here we are- Type 1 With Tyler is that place, welcome to our world!
