My name is Angela Major. I am a Registered Dietitian and mother of three active children. Two of those three children have Type 1 Diabetes. We go to soccer and baseball practice, art lessons and camps, we struggle with homework and argue over whose turn it is to empty the recycling bucket. We also test blood sugars, count carbohydrates, manage infusion sets, and pack around medical supplies to rival the Red Cross. Our family life is colored–but not dictated–by diabetes.
The diabetes online community, and the value of shared experience, is a blessing that I am just beginning to realize. I want to use this blog to share my own experience as a mother of kids with (and without) diabetes as we lead the healthiest life we can. I invite you to tag along as we confront new challenges, try new foods, learn new skills, and grow as a family.
