I would like to take a little time to introduce myself to my followers and anyone else who happens to come across my little blog. I feel like since I’m sharing such a personal side of me, I might as well share some of the other things that make me who I am.
My name is Lindsay. I am 30 years old, and I am from Ohio.
My health problems (since this is the main focus of my blog) include: Type 1 Diabetes (24 year survivor), Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (calf pain that feels like the worst leg cramp that you could ever imagine, 24/7/365, which I have been dealing with for about 5 years now), anxiety (general and social), depression, and PTSD, as well as undiagnosed hand pain.
I’m a Christian. My faith is pretty much the most important part of my life.
I have been married to my best friend and soul mate for just under 7 years now (our anniversary is May 11, 2009). We have been together for 11 years. My husband’s name is Mike. He is my rock.
I have two cats and a dog.

Family is so important to me. While I obviously love all of my family, I am definitely a mommas girl! And I absolutely love being an aunt! I have a three year old niece, and my sister is pregnant now, and I can’t wait to meet my nephew!
Me, my mom, my sister, my dad (at my sister’s baby shower that me and my mom did)
I am a huge bookworm! Reading is one of my favorite things to do. James Patterson is my favorite author.
I love dolphins. My dream is to be able to swim with the dolphins. I was able to see some at the Indianapolis Zoo exhibit, which was amazing! I collect little dolphin things.
My favorite color is pink!
I love music, and listen to a little bit of everything. Some of my favorites include Aerosmith, P!nk, Eminem, Luke Bryan, and Adele.
I enjoy writing poetry, although I don’t write as much as I used to or as much as I would like to. Writing, to me, has always been very therapeutic.
I have three tattoos and want more. I have several tattoo ideas in mind, but the one that I’m considering the most, at the moment, is a Diabetic medic alert type thing on my wrist.
My three tattoos. “With pain comes strength” is my latest one. It is my motto, and helps remind me on particularly rough days to keep on fighting. The double hearts tattoo was my second one, and it is a symbol of the love between my husband and I (he got me a ring with the two interlocking hearts, and it was also the theme of our wedding). The dolphin tattoo was my first tattoo. I like it but it is my least favorite one because it doesn’t have as much meaning as the other two.
I think that’s about it. This is who I am. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! And if you want to, leave a little introduction of yourself in the comments! Thanks for reading!
