It’s a Blehar family episode of Ask Me About My Type 1 this time around as I have on friend of the show and Type 1 guest from Episode 1, Maggie, and her sister Lucy. I hear Maggie’s diagnosis story again but this time from Lucy’s perspective and her initial thoughts after learning about her big sister’s diagnosis. Lucy comes in with some high-quality Q’s that get Maggie and I thinking about just how much of our brains are dedicated to Type 1 management and how the rest of Life fits in. We also get into our thoughts on the annoyingly ignorant portrayal of Type 1 and Diabetes that are “Diabetes jokes” (#dobetterjimmy) and Lucy tells us how she hopes to fix it. And did I mention that the banger intro track you’re about to hear was produced by Maggie and Lucy’s brother Sam? It’s a very Blehar episode this Monday, Type 1s and Type Nones and you are not going to want to miss it! Listen to Episode 11 of Ask Me About My Type 1 now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

I'm Walt and I've been living with my Type 1 Diabetes ever since June of 2000. I've spent most of the past two decades trying to ignore my condition with less than stellar results. But now I'm making up for lost time and doing my part to spread awareness the only way a millennial can these days: through a podcast! Join me and other Type 1s as we try to teach the Non-Type 1s in their lives what this whole T1DLyfe is all about. View all posts by askmeaboutmytype1
