Johanna participated in our “Day in the life of a type 1” project. Johanna is an adult type 1. She is a huge part of our DAD organization, Canine Hope For Diabetics, working as our resident type 1 for real time training with each dog. She almost always has multiple dogs, her dog Porcha, and at least 1 other DAD in training. With multiple DAD’s in the house, testing can happen a lot. Trust me, I know. Thank you for doing this Johanna!

I get to do 1 of my least and 1 of my most favorite things today. At the same time. I get to talk about my daughter’s diabetes, and I get to talk about DAD’s.

I am currently sitting here, making some notes, drinking some green tea, and trying not to totally freak out as the nerves start to kick in.

I wanted to protect my family, and at the time, I thought that meant pulling down the blinds, locking the doors, and wrapping our kids up in bubble wrap. More »

I read a lot about diabetes. A LOT. And it gets discussed a lot in our house. It consumes our lives. Good, bad, or indifferent, it does. It’s the first thing we deal with when we wake up, and the last thing we deal with when we go to bed. And at midnight. And 3 am. And breakfast. And an hour after breakfast. And…well you get the idea.

This was not created by me, but by a member of our diabetic family, Dorrie, of Saving Luke on Facebook. She is a mom to 3 children, including 4 year old Luke, type 1, and Jedi, a Canine Hope DAD. And this needs to be seen.
