S3Ep6: Type 1 Mind&Body

Break out the mats Type 1s and Nones because it’s all about Yoga this week!!! Specifically I’m exploring the Mind&Body connection and how this Yogic practice can help all the Type 1 yogis and yoga curious folks reconnect with their physical bodies outside of all that Type 1 stuff we’re always having to do. Yoga instructor and Type 1 guest Maia Bremmer shares her experiences going through yoga teacher training and her initial difficulties with turning her Type 1 brain off during the more meditative parts of her training. Type None guest Ashley Belluz gives us her perspective as an instructor with Type 1 students in her classes and the insights she’s gained from watching their practice evolve. Ash also gives tells us about a new form of restorative yoga that she teaches called Feelosophy which is an interesting hybrid of massage and yoga characterized by hands on touch and how it accounts for those of us who wear medical devices. It’s all about getting out of our heads and into the movements on this podcast y’all so namastae right where you are and tune in to this week’s Yoga filled episode of Ask Me About My Type 1!!!

S3Ep5: Type 1s, FurSuit Up!

FurSuit UP Type 1s and Nones!!! I’m sitting down with my new Type 1 AND Furry friend, Bailey, and learning about the ins and outs of FurSuiting with Type 1. Bailey’s Type None boyfriend, Alex, joins us and shares his experience learning about both Bailey’s Type 1 and furry fandom and how he has learned to be there for Bailey when she’s all suited up in her octopus, deer, dog, skunk hybrid fursona, and no that isn’t a typo. Bailey also teaches me about the misconceptions that surround the furry community but also how it is so much more than people on the outside realize. It’s a fascinating conversation where I get to revisit my mascoting days and learn how traveling with Type 1 supplies is a cake walk compared to traveling with a fursuit. So zip up your favorite arctic fox suit and make sure your head is on straight because the Ask Me About My Type 1 episode all about Type 1 furrying is live!!!

S3Ep4: CBD, THC, and T1D

Oh Hi Type 1s and Nones!!! We’re talking cannabis this week and I called in the experts because I’m basically cannabidonally illiterate.

We go over the common misconceptions that surround both Cannabis and Diabetes, Sarah and Adrienne’s personal experiences using cannabis, and funnily enough the term “being high” didn’t come up even once!!! So if you’ve been looking for more information on what using cannabis while Type 1 might look like, pull up a chair and get comfortable because I’ve got the experts with me today and they’re dropping some real life cannabis A’s.

Season 3

S3Ep2: Type 1 Strategery

This week on everyone’s favorite Q & A podcast all about Type 1, I host a very special Type NONE guest, Delanie Fischer!!! For those who may not know, Delanie is one of the hosts of my favorite health, wellness, and comedy themed podcast Self-Helpless. Delanie has no knowledge of or connection to Type 1 so I called up friend of the show Jennifer Bartels from season 2 episode 2 and sat down with Delanie to answer all of her burning Type 1 Q’s. This episode, and what I hope to be many more to come, is my effort to be more strategic about my awareness spreading by reaching out to the Type Nones that really should know more about what living with Type 1 actually means. And Delanie being the professional self-help pod-caster and question asker that she is seemed like the perfect Type None to start it all off with. As you’ll hear, Delanie was an absolute dream Type None guest and the questions she brought really made me look at aspects of my Type 1 experience that I hadn’t thought of in years. Sit back and enjoy as I get startegic on this VERY inceptiony episode of Ask Me About My Type 1 and host the host of another podcast on my podcast with a guest with whom I’ve podcasted with before on this very same podcast.

Season 3

S3Ep1: Type 1 Hype-In?

I’m back Type Ones and Nones! It’s the very first episode of the Ask Me About My Type 1 hat trick season and it’s a banger for sure!!! I have on Jordan of @butfirstinsulin fame and she inspires me to make up my very own Type 1 Phrase: Type 1 Hype-In!!! It’s that feeling you get when Type 1 is the reason why everything is going just the way you want them to! It’s an odd one for sure but if it were to end up in the Oxford dictionary Jordan would be the visual example next to the definition because of her absolutely Type 1 Hype-In attitude after her absolutely crazy diagnosis. On top of that Jordan’s sister, Christina, gives me an entirely new perspective on the idea of Type 1 burnout and the importance of support. PLUS I announce some very fashionable developments! Ask Me About My Type 1 is back y’all!!! Get at me in the comments!

Season 3

Type 1 in the Time of COVID

COVID 19 has brought the world to a halt and while everyone strives to find their wayIMG_3577 through this new normal of sheltering in place and flattening the curve, those of us with a less than functioning pancreas have to do so on top of what Type 1 already demands of us. It’s a kind of anxiety that the Type 1 community has literally never had to go through to date so I felt the need to reach out and ask for help from someone who gets not just the Type 1 of it all but the COVID of it all too. Enter Dr, Hannah Hamlin, a medical resident who JUST SO HAPPENS to live with and manage her own Type 1 like many of us. In this special episode, I ask Hannah all my burning and anxiety-induced COVID questions and get all the REAL Type 1 answers with a medical degree to back them up. So wash those hands and maintain an appropriate social distance while we all listen as Hannah breaks COVID down for the Type 1 crowd. This special episode of @askmeaboutmytype1 is now live everywhere you listen to podcasts.
