I started writing posts in this weblog so that people in Greece, who suffer from a chronic autoimmune disease, known as diabetes mellitus (or type-1 diabetes) would find a place to express themselves and make their voice be heard.
My goal is to support those people, whose everyday life is intertwined with the treatment, the complications, the problems and the anxiety of long-term diabetes. I also want this weblog to be a source of reliable medical information, for all “normal, healthy” people who wish to find out more about the big “D”.
Apart from my own experiences, which are events taken place through out my 23-year struggle with my diabetes, all other extracts are taken from medical websites.
I hope to give you a subtle introduction to a subject, which is sometimes hard to cope with and requires patience, perseverance and agility from patients, families, friends, doctors. Welcome to our “sweet life”…
