Hi there, I’m Sarah.
I’m a Leo, INFP, and lover of literature and travel. I’m interested in holistic health, exploring mountain ranges, and listening to everybody’s stories. I’m currently in grad school for Narrative Medicine.
I’ve had type 1 diabetes for 12 years, diagnosed just after I turned 14 years old. Over the past decade of my life with diabetes, I’ve graduated high school and college. I’ve moved to Europe twice, at ages 21 and 23, to study and to work for a year at a time, and have traveled to 20+ countries with only a backpack. I’ve eaten French pastries and Italian pizza and Greek gyros and enjoyed them and taken insulin for them and enjoyed them some more. I started this blog when I was a senior in college, after attending my first diabetes conference in Washington D.C. and feeling the need to continue to connect along with the desire to keep my side of the conversation going.
I share my adventures abroad and in America, and my thoughts, feelings, experiences, and musings with this chronic illness that continuously imprints upon my days. I’ve always been a person interested in the serious stuff; I find few things more boring than small talk. I don’t wish to fill my blog with small talk, either, so I cannot promise eternal rainbows and sunshine… but I can promise you the truth in my experience. Ever-changing as it may be… but unfailingly full of truth and attention. Mine, like everyone’s, is a story still evolving.
If you’re new to my blog, here are a few posts to get acquainted:
