Lindsey was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 4 years old. She is now 25 working as an Executive Director in a non-profit and attending graduate school.
She recently went on the Omnipod after a four year "pump vacation" using MDIs. She is now working towards an A1c goal under 7%.
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!

In over 20 years of living with this disease, I’ve learned not to think about complications much. I understand the reality and am working towards lowering my A1c and becoming even more healthy. I take care of myself outside of my diabetes with supplements and exercise and stress reduction. Or I t
At 5:30 this morning, I woke up with panic in my mind. In my unconscious mind, three men were surrounding my childhood home where my mom, brothers, best friend, and myself were staying. The last thing I remember is that my brother said he was handling it and I was racing upstairs to be with my mo
On Sunday, I helped Ross move down the road with the help of another couple friend of ours. Before starting the load, trek, and unload, I’d checked my blood sugar and found it well above range thanks to being sick over the past few days. I took a correction, drank some coffee, bolused for the cof
