Hi! My name is Stephanie Stamas and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in August of 1998. It is a daily challenge to maintain my blood sugar by making healthy food choices, getting enough sleep, drinking plenty of water and getting out to exercise every day.
I started this blog because my heart is to reach as many people as I can that are dealing with the same things I and my loved ones do each day. I want to connect with you. I want to share stories. I want to hold myself accountable, and I want you to be held accountable as well.
Whether you are a parent whose child has recently been diagnosed, or if you yourself are fighting the daily battle with me, this blog is for you. I don’t claim to have all the answers, I am not a doctor or medical professional, and I will admit I did not take care of myself for FAR TOO LONG; however, each day is a new start and each day we can learn something new about how best to take care of ourselves (or our loved one’s), living on the run with Type 1.
