My story

the diabetic survivor self-portraitHello there! I have diabetes Type 1 and I was diagnosed 19 (almost 20) years ago. I use Libre sensors (FGM) and I've been on pump therapy for one year and a half. Indeed, I'm a full-time Cyborg 😀

Why thediabeticsurvivor?

Many, many years ago I had a blog where I posted advice to diabetic people like me who were looking to travel... (it never became a truly useful blog).
I am an avid internet user, and during this last year I created the Instagram account @thediabeticsurvivor with the aim of blending my graphic design background with my recent Master in Fine Arts in order to create meaningful images for the diabetic community.
The whole idea behind is very simple: bring some joy and happiness to the diabetes community touching certain aspects of the 'diabetes world'. Thanks to that I have been developing also a wide range of projects working with others as a visual designer with different organisations such as T1International, UK and Beyond Type 1, USA.

If you feel like we’d be a good fit just message me at hello@thediabeticsurvivor.com 😀

 

Hobbies

I am drawn to art and I like to visit exhibitions and anything related with the visual, I also love films.

During this year I have been trying climbing with my girlfriend, however, I found it a little difficult with the issue of diabetic foot care.

I enjoy doing barbecues with friends and riding my bike around London. I’m clumsy playing Frisbee though I like it. This year I’m taking 'Alexander Technique' classes, which is a technique developed to reeducate one's awareness and habits of posture.

I do love cheese (specifically camembert and brie) and I try to stay on a low carb diet because of my blood sugar levels. Sometimes I find myself doodling and reading about Diabetes in the internet community, some of that can be seen here at www.thediabeticsurvivor.com. Not sure if it’s a hobby, just the opposite, but I spend some time with the customer service of Abbot about Libre sensors!
