    Novorapid, Levothyroxine and red wine.
    Exercise:
    Dog, bike and running around like a legless chicken..
    Likes:
    Living life to the full, running, cycling, skiing, travelling, sunshine, helping others and big smiles.
    Dislikes:
    Hypos, rude people, ignorance and grey days.
    Diagnosed type 1 - 7 years ago after a week's skiing holiday during which I skied my first black run and then celebrated by drinking a can of coke, in fact I didn't stop drinking coke that week.. .

    I try hard to not let type 1 rule my life, it's like walking a tightrope every day. However I challenge myself to defy this condition, so continue to ski each year, taken up riding a road bike, started running in 2017, run each week at various park runs and completed my first 10k. I also try to raise money where I can to support t1 related charities, in particular Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and in 2016 completed a parachute jump raising £750, in 2017 I completed the 102 mile Cotswold Way Walk raising £1320, ran a marathon in 28 days in 2018 for JDRF, I also get involved in T1 research programs when possible.

    My motto is to take it one day at a time, help others, don't take life too seriously, it's too short to be pessimistic..
