Hi! My name is Emma Towslee and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 9/15/2014. I was 17 years old, beginning my Freshman year of college. I was honestly scared out of my mind and have had personal battles, dealing with the stigma behind diabetes. I’m now just about to begin my Sophomore year in college and feel like I have some type of wisdom to share with the world. When I was diagnosed, I sought comfort in reading other’s blogs and was always trying to hear other’s experiences. My goal for this blog is to share those experiences I’ve had with diabetes in the hopes that someone may gain the same comfort I did.
