Hi, I'm Heather

I'll keep you updated on the latest in type 1 diabetes management... mostly through my own trials and errors :)

Don't look back... you're not going that way

Pro-tip: One of the hardest battles I've faced with #type1diabetes is actually the one against myself. Since I'm no Buddha (& my incredibly inflexible downward dog shows it), any "self-reflection" I do easily turns to self-doubt & regret. After my diagnosis, I wondered where did I go wrong? I even blamed the stress of medical school, which was filled with pillow-flipping nights (cold side, always), cliff bar dinners & endless exams. Clearly, I wasn't my body's BFF during that time & my little white coat had no clue what was in store.

Flash forward, I couldn't help but connect my lifestyle to diabetes, despite knowing it just wasn't true. Yes, it's our human nature to look back, but when my over-analyzing brain goes into over-drive, I remind myself to simply pump the breaks. Allowing regret to live in your mind (rent free!) does not accomplish anything besides take up precious space. I'd much rather be thinking about the important things, like what's for dinner.
