Welcome to the world, Sweet Life!

So here it is! The first ever update on the world of Sweet Life…

It’s been a long time coming for the three of us (Bridget, Claire and Mark – the trio who make up Sweet Life), but it finally seems like things are coming together, and we are SO excited for our November 1st launch into the world! A couple of people have asked us why we wanted to start this magazine, why we wanted to build this community, and it really boils down to one thing: we want to share our belief that being diabetic doesn’t have to hold you back from life.

When I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2007, it felt like my life was coming to an end. All the information I was given told me how diabetics are at greater risk for all kinds of complications – heart disease, liver disease, blindness, amputation. Nobody ever said: if you’re in good control, there’s nothing you can’t do.

Well, that’s what we’re saying right here! If you’re in good control, you can live a full and wonderful life, with diabetes.

So here’s to an exciting diabetic adventure, and the start of great things to come!
