Biography

I'm a daughter, a sister, a niece, a lover and a friend. I work hard, and like to have fun. I love the smell of fresh baked bread and the colours in a beautiful sunset. I love the sound of waves on the seashore and the feel of wet sand between my toes. I like to be the first person to walk through freshly fallen snow and I love to kick through the fallen autumn leaves. I adore the taste of chocolate with mint, and the combination of cranberry with orange. Sometimes I want nothing more than to curl up on the sofa in a warm jumper with a big mug of tea. I like the simple things, and seek the best in life, living for today, but always excited about the next big thing.

I have had type 1 diabetes for 25 years and have worn an insulin pump for seven years, and a continuous glucose monitor for two and a half. Sometimes I feel like a bionic woman, but more often it's like having a Tamagotchi pet semi-permanently attached. After a run-in with meningitis, I developed epilepsy when I was 21, and finally I was diagnosed with Addison's Disease two years ago.

I'm almost 30. I've done a lot of living, but I hope I've got a heck of a lot more to come.
