Robin shares her inspiring journey and discusses various aspects of living with type 1 diabetes. Topics include: 
    Overcoming Fear and Embracing Movement: Robin shares invaluable insights on how individuals living with diabetes can overcome fear and embrace movement despite the challenges posed by the condition. Drawing from her own experiences, she provides practical tips and motivational advice.
    Going from "Shut Up and Run" to "I'm Not Done Yet": Robin discusses her personal mantra transformation and the importance of adopting a resilient mindset in the face of adversity. She explores how reframing our perspectives can empower us to push beyond our limits and achieve our goals.
    Celebrating Invisible Moments: Robin emphasises the significance of celebrating "invisible" victories and milestones in the journey with diabetes. She encourages listeners to acknowledge and appreciate the small wins, recognising the strength and resilience it takes to navigate life with a chronic condition.

CaraBaraD ,

Informative and emotional at times

In this podcast, Dan interviews a wide variety of different people who all have different experiences living with type 1 diabetes. As a parent of a young child with type 1 it has helped me to connect with others, and opened my eyes to the various different experiences people have as well as inspiring me and validating my own struggles with diabetes. Thanks Dan and keep up the great work!
