Oh Hi Type 1s and Nones!! We’re in the middle of National Diabetes Awareness Month and today’s episode couldn’t have been more perfect to celebrate the occasion!! I have on Type 1 guest Ekram and Type 1 guest and Ekram’s husband, Jesse and we get into what I think to be the very core of what this month of awareness is all about. Ekram tells us her story of being diagnosed after her older sister had already been diagnosed with Type 1 years earlier. But despite this familiarity with the condition, Ekram still found Type 1 to be a tough road to navigate because there’s knowing about Type 1 and then there’s KNOWING Type 1. Jesse tells us of a very memorable low that he helped Ekram get through and shows us the many different ways that Type Nones can be there for the Type 1s in their lives. I also introduce my VERY challenging plan to finish out this National Diabetes Awareness Month so cozy up in your favorite podcast-listening chair and listen up to the newest episode of Ask Me About My Type 1!! Listen to Episode 10 of Ask Me About My Type 1 Season 2 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
