I’m Andrea and I’m a type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed on September 17th, 2007 at 20 years old. I had 20 good years, I say.
I started using the OmniPod insulin pump on October 1st, 2012. My current endocrinologist is pretty cool and has an impossibly Greek name. I just call her Dr. K.
I mean, I really like naps. As my mother says, “she’s a sleepy girl, but she does okay.”
I am a speech language pathologist. I also like boats.
My best friend Alexander Johnson took the photo posted. My mama, Linda, took the photo of Nicolaus Copernicus on deck. It is a forgiving photo of me. Nico always looks that good.
