YFT1 Goes Drinking


So, thanks so much for stopping by and making it past the homepage. I can feel the connection between us already.

I really like hearing from you – whether you’re a fellow blogger, type 1, PR person, lovely human being of this earth in another guise… you’re all great. If you would like to get in touch with your thoughts, feedback, questions, partnership enquires etc, then say hi at For any diabetes advice you’re best seeing your specialist/GP (see the below disclaimer. It’s definitely for the best if you don’t ask me).

You can also get in touch with any journalism related thingys, writing commissions or booking requests. I do some freelance stuff sometimes, so that is great news. Expertise include youth responsibility, social media, digital content for young audiences and more. Services I offer include content for your blog or website, talking head stuff, creative collaborations and presenter work. Here’s me talking live and unscripted about diabetes on BBC Radio Humberside with Peter Levy:


So. This bit isn’t much fun so let’s just get it over with.

I talk about diabetes on here, among other things like health and exercise. Diabetes is a serious, complicated, confusing condition. If it wasn’t there would be no need for this blog, and we’d all be sad about that.

However many books etc I may read, I am by no means whatsoever a medical expert, or expert of any kind, diabetes or otherwise.

Everything contained in this blog has been drawn from my own experience, observations and learnings.

If upon reading this you think you may want to change a few things about your diabetes control, or health in general, please seek advice from your doctor or diabetes specialist.

Also, I am a digital producer with an actual job. So on that tip, these views are entirely my own and not that of any employer or associated companies. Sending me products does not guarantee a mention or review unless previously agreed. And I will always give my honest opinion, and disclose any compensation I have received, if any. I do not accept posts I haven’t written – this is my little creative space, sorry.

Right, PHEW that’s over, now you never have to read that again. But please read the other pages and posts, they’re a lot more interesting, and maybe even *gasp* mildly entertaining at times.

To health and happiness.

    Hi Jen
    Just stumbled across your blog today. Good stuff !

    Im really just writing to ask if you’ve heard of the DAFNE course being run by some clinics.
    I’ve had T1 for 20 odd years now and done this course early last year and to be honest I was sceptical before going. But I can honestly say it turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. Yes I know what you’re thinking, but honestly.

    The course is run over 5 days and the best part is probably the fact that I done it with 5 other T1’s. To share and listen to others experience of living with T1 was good and to realise that we all deal with much the same problems, big or small, really was refreshing.
    The most unique part though was being able to have a laugh (and believe me there was lots of it) with people who really did know what you were talking about.

    And the bonus of it all, yes there really was a real practical benefit, was the basis of the course. It really did help me to finally understand how to fine tune my treatment which resulted in far more stability and confidence.

    Kind regards.
