More than a Diagnosis

I’m partaking in this year’s Diabetes Blog Week. Each post this week will be based on a pre-determined prompt constructed by Karen over at Bittersweet Diabetes. You can participate by visiting her website.

More Than Diabetes – Friday 5/19

Let’s wrap up the week by sharing a little more about ourselves, beyond the chronic illness we or our loved ones live with.  Share an interest, hobby, passion, something that is YOU.  If you want to explore how it relates to or helps with diabetes you can. Or let it be a part of you that is completely separate from diabetes because there is more to life than just diabetes!  (This topic is a suggestion from the 2016 #DBlogWeek survey.)


The first post of the week I don’t have all queued up. Oops.

So, it’d be silly to not mention that I’m a ballroom, latin, and swing dancer. I mean, I’ve written about it a few times.

But besides that, I’m also:

A mom to a strong-willed toddler.

A wife to a supportive husband.

A daughter to some of the best parents on the planet.

A loyal employee and client manager.

A reliable friend.

A closet Disney fanatic.

A musical theater lover.

The worst cook on the planet. (But I make up for it by baking.)

A hyper-organized party planner.

Pinterest-obsessed.

A perfectionist.

A former choir girl.

Stubborn as fuck.

A lover of all things coffee.

A fan of a good craft beer.

A seeker of nuanced political conversation.

A decent photographer and graphic designer.

Obsessed with understanding social media dynamics.

Easily hooked by a good dystopian novel.

And lastly, not just a pre-existing condition.
