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, getting married, and traveling the world.
Her diabetes "weapons of choice" are: the Dexcom G4 Platinum and the t:slim insulin pump. She recently married her best friend and biggest supporter. 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!

As a Type A personality with a perfectionist streak, diabetes management is something that easily gets under my skin. If I can’t do something perfect, then I’d much rather just not do it at all. Which is why burnout creeps up on me super fast. A few days of pesky numbers and I am ready to throw a
Day-in and day-out living with type 1 diabetes often slips by me. The nuances of what it means to live with a chronic illness for the majority of your life are so easily ignored. As Ross and I have spent a lot of time in the last weeks talking around and about my health, it hit me that we live a
Today was my second appointment with Nurse C, the CDE in my new endo practice. She’s been a great resource and has already helped motivate me to get my averages down to the 170s. However, I’m obviously still not in the “green light” range for pregnancy. It wasn’t an easy appointment today as I po
Baby planning is always in the back of my mind lately. As I drove into work this morning, I thought to myself how much I want a child. As I clip coupons from the newspaper, I start thinking about when to stock up on diapers. None of this really matters though if I can’t wrap my head around the ph
