Fighting the Unseen Life With Diabetes
Diabetes Doesn't Define You
The Lobster Man of New England
I grew up in Northern CT and MA. I enjoy living in New England- even for the snow!
I have been writing stories and books since I was 14.
I published my first book, "Test", at the age of 20 (though it was written between 16-18).
My second book, "Wretched (this is my sorry)", was published in May 2008. This book is my baby. This is the one that I worked so hard for, and wrote from the gut of my stomach. It is not a memoir- but it is very personal.
My third book, "Okay", was published in October 2008.
I am very excited to be here! I am looking to fulfill my dream of becoming well enough known that I can stay at home and work all the time! Some day it'd be great to be able to quit my mundane job and do what I was built to do- imagine, create, and write!
I've been diabetic since I was 14- which was 11 years ago this September 23rd, 2009. I've been through diabetic related seizures, insulin shock comas, and ketoacidosis. I definitely have not had it easy!
But, it's really hard to offend me, as I take most everything in stride and don't let little things "get" to me.
I'm focused on living for forever!
