Hey!! I am Shannon.
I’m the Mom of a Type 1 Diabetic
Juggling it all as a Mom of a Type 1 can be really tough. Restless days and sleepless nights, exhaustion, information overload, a completely new way of living, Rx renewals and staying on top of supplies. It is very overwhelming.
I know what it’s like to feel completely alone in this; to feel like you have to master this new Type 1 life in a week, or a month. To go from just a “regular mom” to a mathematician, a phlebotomist, an educator, and a nurse. To worrying about your child’s life more so now than ever.
I started Mom Of A Type 1 because of those reasons, because for an entire year it sucked the life out of me and I wanted to change that for others. To help Type 1 Moms feel in-control and confident again.
