About This Blog


Type 1 Writes is my personal blog about life as a young adult living with type 1 diabetes in Australia. This includes, but is not limited to personal experiences, stories, advocacy, opinion pieces, news, media and anything else that may grab my interest.

Type 1 Writes is self funded. I run this site because I am passionate about diabetes, writing and having my own little corner of the internet to be creative with. All editorial, content, and opinions on this site are my own. I aim to be honest, respectful and credible at all times. I am not qualified to provide any medical treatment, advice or otherwise. I am simply sharing what works for me.

Type 1 Writes is happy to accept products, services, invitations or anything else that is relevant. I disclose all gifts and forms of compensation where relevant, however all subsequent opinions and content on this site will remain my own.
