    S4Ep3: Married with Type 1

    It's a new week Type 1s and Nones and THIS time around we're talking Marriage with Type 1, with Lexie and her Type None husband De'Andre. Because Type 1 AND our relationships are parts of our lives that must interact, Lexie and Deyondre tell us what it's been like for them and how they've been able to make the most out of a very difficult and unique Type 1 situation. Lexie also shares with us how she's been using her social media platform, The Sugarless Society, to not only support the Type 1 community but also as a way to help other Type 1/Type None couples navigate a relationship with each other AND Type 1.

    Oh Hi Type 1s and Nones! We're getting responsible this week on the Ask Me About My Type 1 because it's all about mixing Alcohol with your Type 1!

She shares with us all the hawt hawt tips for drinking while Type 1 along with easy ways to make your favorite drinks less carby but just as yummy (ugh that one made me cringe). Her Type None friend Heather joins us to share her experience with SugarFree Mixology and what learning about Type 1 from Jen has done for her.

    S3Ep.14.4 Communicating the Type 1 Experience Part 4

    Type 1s and Nones!!! It's the finale of the finale. That's right! Part 4, the final installment of the Ask Me About My Type 1 Season 3 Finale Special the Series is here! This very special episode is the live recording of the Connected In Motion Virtual Slipstream Workshop that I did a couple months back. Here I share why I think sharing our Type 1 stories is so important along with some tips on how you can do it yourself! In addition to my TedTalk I was also lucky enough to find three Type 1 volunteers, friend of the show Jordan (S2Ep.1) and new friends Katie and Sarah, who helped me open up the conversation based on their varied experiences with that thing we call Type 1. I had a lot of fun with this and I hope it gives you some sort of insight into your Type 1 experience. Thank you all again so much for this very special season of Ask Me About My Type 1!!! See y'all for Season 4!!!

    S3Ep.14.3 More than just a post... Part 3

    S3Ep.14.3 More than just a post... Part 3

    Oh hi Type 1s and Nones!!! I'm back AGAIN this week and this time with Part 3 of the Ask Me About My Type 1 Season 3 Finale Special Series!!! On this very special episode Lexie, Lauren, Qiana, and Antoinette come back and share with us their thoughts on the posts that everyone in the Diabetic Online Community is talking about right now. Recent happenings on social media brought to light major issues within the Type 1 Community that quite frankly aren't new, but need to be addressed. Because while the discussions many of us in the Type 1 Community are now having may have been inspired by a post on social media, the problems they represent go much much deeper. Thank you again to Lexie, Lauren, Qiana, and Antoinette for their help with this episode.

Inovative idea for a podcast

Walt does a fantastic job of connecting people with T1D through this podcast. Additionally, what is most unique about this podcast is that Walt strives to connect people with T1D AND people without T1D to deepen the public’s understanding of this chronic illness. I learn something new every time I listen!

Favorite podcast!

I always listen to Ask Me About My Type 1. Walt is a fantastic interviewer, he actively listens and gives his guests space to open up and tell their story. And he is so funny! I’ve had type 1 for seven years, and AMAMT1 is a huge part of my T1 care - I need to regularly hear other t1 stories so that I remember that all is well and I’m not so weird or different. Listening to Walt helps me take a deep breath, learn something, and have a laugh at my T1D. Thanks Walt! Love ya!

Love learning about everyone’s different experiences with chronic illness!

I started to listen when my friend from high school shared she was a guest on the podcast. Since then I’ve subscribed and been listening each week. It’s very interesting to learn as a type none and to hear how different people deal with chronic illness in a general sense as I do have a chronic illness as well. It’s always such good conversation and a podcast I enjoy listening to.
