I think I’ll start this first blog post by introducing myself if you don’t already know who I am. You can call me Liz. I named my blog Liz with Type One because I am a Type One Diabetic! I’ve recently had my diaversary and I have had it for two years now. Being diagnosed was one of the worst things I’ve had to deal with on my own. I know my family supported me but I definitely had moments where I felt extremely alone and that nobody understood me, or tried to understand what I was going through. I try to think that diabetes doesn’t define me but it’s a major part of who I am now. People can think, “oh just eat better” “just work out more” “just do this or do that” and thats not really how it works. But anyways, I can get into diabetes more later in my posts but I’ll try to keep this somewhat short and simple.
I am 25 years old and am a fur mom to two animals. My dog, Wilson, and my cat, Moka. I couldn’t imagine my life without them. If you have animals, I’m sure you know the feeling. I have been with my boyfriend for 8 years and hoping for many more to come! He’s my bestie. We met in high school. Although our relationship wasn’t perfect in the beginning, I’d say we grew so much together and are nothing how we used to be. Thats also a good thing, a very good thing.
I’ve loved writing ever since I could remember. I have always had journals since I was a young girl. Looking back, they were super emo and probably every page said “I hate my life!” followed by more emo writings. I wrote in them mostly to let out anger or sadness. It wasn’t until a couple years ago I decided to get a journal that I would write positive things in. I felt that I was able to still let out any kind of sadness but I would write it in a way that wasn’t super depressing. Also, since I’m not a teenager anymore I think I’m probably less dramatic than before (but still a little dramatic).
I’m here to start this blog to document events in my life, to share my happiness, and to share things I love and hopefully connect with others who love the same things! Hopefully this first post wasn’t a complete mess. I feel like I have so much to say sometimes that I bounce off of so many topics! I tried keeping this one simple.
Until Next Time,
