I know about needles. 

That is the first line of Andie Dominick’s 1998 memoir, also titled Needles, on growing up with type one diabetes. I read it when I was sixteen, after Googling “diabetes memoirs,” because I was the only person I knew with this disease, and I was lonely.

I, too, know about needles.

Read the rest of this post at ASweetLife Diabetes Magazine (here), where I am now a contributing writer! I have a bit of catch-up to do, as I’ve written a few posts for them so far, but this was the first one and I’ll roll the others out soon.

Happy 2018, by the way!
