For months before creating My Favourite Number, I had “lurked” on various diabetes patient health blogs, reading the daily tales of strangers, from across the continent and around the world. They inspired me. They motivated me to take better care of myself. To consider an insulin pump. To log my blood sugars with more care and thought. After a while, I realized that maybe I could instill this same motivation in others. And so, My Favourite Number was born.
I am not a doctor nor am I a certified diabetes educator. I am simply a person with a lust for life and years’ worth of experience living with diabetes and celiac. Neither am I perfect. However, I do make an effort to do my best every single day.
