Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to read about me! My name is Bryanna Wilfong and I am 30 years old. I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, 3 year old son, and my Yorkie mix, Bella. I love laughing and having a good time! Sarcasm is also my second language. I love spending time with my family, especially the ones I don’t get to see often. My hobbies include: reading, watching movies with my husband, medical dramas (House M.D. is my favorite show!) and I have a love affair with makeup. I grew up in a small town in Ohio. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology (with a molecular/cellular concentration) in 2011, but I have been a stay at home mom since my son was born in 2013.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes right after my 10th birthday. Throughout the last 20 years I have gone through many ups and downs. Living with a chronic illness is anything but easy! I decided to start a blog as a way to vent, but also to share my many experiences living with Type 1. From 2004-2012 I managed my Type 1 Diabetes with an insulin pump. I started having a lot of pump site issues, so I went back to injections in 2012. In October of 2015 I got my Dexcom CGM. I absolutely love my Dexcom! It’s in invaluable tool.
I haven’t always taken care of myself, but I have many reasons why I should! I met my husband in 2008, and we were married in June of 2011. When we talked about starting a family, I knew I had to get my blood sugars under control. It was the only way for us to have a healthy baby! My husband, Chris, is my rock. He was the first person who motivated me as a young adult to take care of myself! He has always been extremely supportive, but he also gives me a push when I need one. I don’t know what I would do without him by my side.
The main reason why I take care of myself the best way I know how is my son, Noah. He is the light of my life. A Type 1 Pregnancy is considered high risk, and it was very difficult. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, and Noah was worth every minute of it. He is the happiest little boy I have ever known. He is always smiling, and loves to make other people smile too!
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
