Welcome to the blog!

Hello! My name is Jessie and I’m so thrilled you found this blog!

Spoiler alert: I have diabetes. I got it in 2014 and it came out of nowhere and it super fucked up the way I think about body image, health, chronic illness, gratitude, and all sorts of other things. That’s the short version. Here’s the long version:

I have complained about National Diabetes Month, had a breakdown on the subwayfailed at my first Thanksgiving with Diabetes, and had another breakdown.

Oh yeah, then there was the business of the second autoimmune disorder.

    As T1d since August 1979 I estimate at least 70,000 injections and almost that many fingersticks. Overwhelming to think about that many.
