For many years I have contemplated writing a blog. Every single time I would get out my computer, sit down, and then stop...Why would anyone want to read MY blog?
After scouring numerous online blogs written beautifully by other professionals I have finally decided to take the plunge.
I am a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with a passion for kids, health, longevity, nutrition, fitness and all things wellness.
I also happen to be a patient myself- I was "blessed" with my diagnosis of type 1 diabetes (T1DM) at the ripe age of 3. This was when my thirst (no pun intended) for all things health-related started. I was always very interested in my own care of the disease- from learning how to test my blood sugar to drawing up and injecting my insulin shots.
My diagnosis has helped me TREMENDOUSLY when caring for my own patients. I know what it is like to be on the receiving end of bad news. This has allowed me to be real with my patients and families, but also deliver news in a delicate fashion. Which, let's be honest, sometimes we all need a little handholding and coddling.
So...Why follow my blog?
Please continue to follow me and feel free to message me with post suggestions or questions!
