    Good morning!

    A quick overview - I have my own mind coach and therapy practice, I'm an artist, plus a very enthusiastic traveller, I love art, colour and south east asian food and I just happen to also be a diabetic, and have been since I was born over 40 years ago. I was diagnosed when I was 4 days old, I'm on lantus and novorapid and using insulin pens. Technologically I'm a happy dinosaur - if it keeps working for me, that's what I use.

    My latest project is to upload my Diabetic Travel Diaries from the year out I enjoyed a few years ago ... this is on www.whatloudidnext.com - it's just been started so you can visit Bolivia, Easter Island, Tahiti, Uruguay and Paraguay, whilst I sort out the other sections. It's not at all about diabetes, which would be boring, there's a couple of mentions and a separate section on what I use/do, but much more about the things we saw and did and the bits that amused me - I thought it would be good to share and prove what POSITIVES us diabetics can get up to.
