As we approach the halfway point of National Diabetes Awareness Month, I wanted this episode to focus on a huge part of why we have this month in the first place: SUPPORT!! Yes, advocacy involves a lot of fundraising and those dollars are important because they are put to so many good uses but we also want to spread awareness about Type 1 so that we can be supported by the people in our lives who may not know what living with Type 1 is like but can still be there in the ways that we need. I have on Type 1 famous person, Molly of “Hugging the Cactus” blog fame and her best Type None friend from college Emma, and the three of us explore all the ways that Type 1s AND Type Nones need support. So grab your favorite buddy, fully functioning pancreas or not, and listen in as we discuss the ways all of us navigate the world whether we’re living with type 1 OR caring for someone who does and the support that can help make that easier. Listen to Episode 11 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
