*NEWS*  Attended the  Diabetes UK Professionals Conference in Manchester 8-10 March 2017 as a blogger in their Press Team.  Check Tweet and blogs under #DUKPC about the talks and workshops.  Such an exciting experience, providing lots of interesting new info about living with diabetes, plus the latest research.  More blogs will follow…

After 52 years with type 1, I’m living proof that even if you fall off the wagon at many points, you can live long and well if you nurture your determination, resilience and the many powerful characteristics diabetes conveys – and you also ensure you have access to support, the #DOC and the many great clinicians we have in our NHS as and when you need them.

I hope the info on my site will inspire people who struggle to believe that it’s possible to embrace and be at peace with diabetes and also flag sources of support.
