Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tristin Michelle Campbell. I married my true love and best friend, Aaron Campbell on June 1st of 2013. We live in Round Rock, TX (near Austin) with our two adorable doggies Lola, a Lhasa Apso, and Bailey, a Porkie (Pomeranian and Yorkshire terrier mix), and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes or T1D when I was 23.
There are multiple factors that came together on why I decided to start a blog. First off, the majority of my inspiration came from my sister-in-law, Megan Walker, who has her own blog called, “The Walker Fireside Chats.” Her ability to express herself and her experiences through writing has given me a lot of courage to do the same.
I have also noticed the awareness and knowledge of Type 1 Diabetes is drastically smaller than that of Type 2 Diabetes, and the two are in fact different. So, I would like to share my experiences, knowledge, and research in the hopes of bringing more awareness to this disease, as well as learn from others in the process.
