Lindsey was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 4 years old. She is now 26 working as the Vice President in a non-profit. She has not let Type 1 stop her in pursuing an undergraduate and graduate degree, planning a wedding, and traveling the world.
Her diabetes "weapons of choice" are: the Dexcom G4 Platinum and the t:slim insulin pump. She is working towards an A1c goal under 7% in hopes to start a family in the next year.
Her father was diagnosed in 2007 with Type 1. It left her questioning who she was with this disease and who she was going to be with diabetes in the future. His diagnosis made diabetes even more of a reality, causing a complete turn around in how she projects the disease to herself and to the world.
In 2007, Lindsey received a diagnosis of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and endometriosis. They have made managing diabetes even harder. Despite the difficulty, she has remained hopeful that her health will not be a problem in the future.
Lindsey is a typical, yet unique, Texas woman who loves shopping, movies and reading. She loves to travel and take risks. She dreams of diabetes cures, never-ending cheesecake, and her own airplane. The rest you can discover in her blog!

Because I wear my Dexcom on my arm, I’ve slowly adjusted to the fact that people will ask me about it. Sometimes it’s the rude and inquisitive “What’s that?” and sometimes it’s somewhat sincere curiosity “Is that a (insert random type of medical device that they assume)?” Sometimes it bothers me
Today marks 22 years with type 1 diabetes for me. It doesn’t seem real. When I see other diabetics who have had it for 40, 50, 60 years, it just makes it feel like there is so much further to go. An endless amount of this life. 22 years is a lifetime for me. It is 85% of my life…22 years out of j
Since Monday, I have made several changes to my diabetes management in efforts to get my A1c down into the pre-pregnancy range of 6 to 6.5%. Before my endo appointment on Monday, I downloaded the data from my Dexcom, t:slim, and Verio IQ meter to look at trends. It was obvious that I needed chang
Life with diabetes has been emotionally taxing lately. For two weeks, I’ve been fighting with insurance, suppliers, and doctors trying to get all of my supplies and medications switched to my new insurance. I’m currently on hold with my insurance trying to figure out why there’s a hold up on my p
