There’s a rude interruption to proceedings as Jen’s beeping insulin pump distracts the chat, and we ponder how much extra knowledge we’re holding in our little brains because: type 1 diabetes.
We’re feeling a bit dia-tired this week between Ami preparing to move house and well, dealing with a chronic illness every single day, and there hasn’t been much sleep between these two ladies. But we’re doing it! We’re here! We’re living! Right?
We also talk about whether, despite the moaning and the frustrations, we’d actually change our diagnosis if we had the chance. Would you? It’s a little bit reflective in parts this week, but there’s a few cheap jokes in there too of course so WORRY NOT! We’ve got it all covered.
Welcome to Type 1 on 1: The Diaries! Writer and broadcaster Jen Grieves and producer Ami Bennett are good friends - who both happen to live with type 1 diabetes. For this special spin-off series of Type 1 on 1, nana diabetic Jen (25 years) and baby diabetic Ami (3 years) chat through the frustrating, funny and challenging experiences they’ve faced each week thanks to this ridiculous condition. All in the hope that their stories might help you too.
