“I am an Australian living with T1.5 Diabetes (LADA) and blog about the emotional issues attached to living with Diabetes.”
I am a latecomer to Type 1.5 Diabetes. Initially misdiagnosed as Type 2 (in my early 20s) I spent a long period in denial until diminishing beta cells and failure to follow up lead to a raft of complications.
I began my blog as a way of sharing my story and my emotional battles with Diabetes both for personal benefit and in the hope that it might resonate and help others.
I have no formal medical training just a load of personal experience that comes from living every day with a chronic illness.
