Health knowledge made personal
Hi! We're Mollie and Jackie Singer, we live in Nevada, we are also twin sisters. I, Mollie, am a Juvenile Diabetic, and Jackie, is not. I?ve been on the insulin pump for 8 years and recently started using the Continuous Glucose Monitor.
We are both second semester juniors, currently attending The Honors College at UNLV. We both love music, smiling, and seeing the best in every person and situation. Even though one of us has diabetes, we live life to the fullest and work as a team to resolve each of our problems. For the last 15 years, Jackie has been by my side helping me; she IS my guardian angel.
This blog talks about our lives and our experiences with and without diabetes and we talk about how Jackie helps me deal with my diabetes, physically, spiritually, emotionally. Hopefully, our honest approach to our experiences and the way we deal with situations will be helpful to other diabetics, their families, and peers.
We?ve been blogging since March of 2004. We created this blog so we could write about how its like to live with diabetes and how it's like to have a sister who lives with the disease. Through this medium, we discuss life with diabetes in the hope that it will answer questions and help people to know they are not alone. It is meant to insire others to deal with their disease, and encourages them to manage it. Our Blog is a place where anyone can ask us anything about diabetes and in holding such open discussions, more and more people learn about their disease and their familes, friends, and peers learn how they can be of assistance. We try to write in here on a daily basis, but that doesn?t always happen.
