One of the things that got me interested in blogging in the first place was visiting the forums at the American Diabetes Association and seeing moms there fretting that their Type 1 kids would never find love or happiness. Maybe no one would marry their sons or daughters because of diabetes. Somebody needed to prove those moms wrong and reassure them that everything was gonna be okay.
I was engaged when I started Dorkabetic, then got married a couple of months later. Matt has never known me without diabetes. We were together when I got my first pump. While diabetes can cause some worries that I'm sure couples without diabetes don't have to deal with, it shouldn't stop you from being in love. I mean, just look at how disgustingly cute we are. I will give you a high blood sugar just by merely showing you these photos!

|And silly, too. We are both very silly people.|
