Welcome!

Hello to all my fellow diabetic and nondiabetic inhabitants of this earth. My name is Abby, I’m a 24-year-old Vancouver native currently living in Toronto, Canada. I’m a musician, health enthusiast and lover of all things chocolate.

 

This website is a personal projection for my constant thirst for learning new and better ways to live as a type 1 diabetic. Being chronically ill has the potential to be chronically shitty, but it doesn’t have to be. Over the past 7 years of having diabetes, I’ve learned a lot about how to harmoniously coexist (for the most part) with the beast it can sometimes prove to be. I know that my blood sugar will never be perfect all the time, but knowing that I have the ability to keep it within my comfortable range, and still live a fulfilling, non-restrictive life, is empowering to me. The reason I care so much about maintaining the best blood sugar I can is because my ultimate goal is to be super old and wrinkly and not have any complications. Check out “my journey” to read more about the different diets and experiments I’ve tried that have lead me to where I am today.

“Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood. All is a riddle, and the key to a riddle is another riddle.”

Hey guys! Here's my first and maybe only Youtube video about what I eat in a day along with all my blood sugar readings. So many people think I eat a super restrictive, boring diet in order to maintain normal blood sugar levels and still be vegan/low carb, but here's proof that I don't! If you guys really enjoy it maybe I'll make another one, but I'm not exactly a camera person... so we'll see how that goes :p

thanks for watching <3
