We're proud to announce that our new mothership here at Healthline.com is launching a diabetes EmpowerT1D campaign that mixes the sharing of inspiring photos and messages with substantial fundraising for JDRF.
The idea is that PWDs (people with diabetes) post photos or inspirational quotes about healthy living, to help others also living with T1D, and in turn Healthline will donate $10 to the JDRF for each submission -- up to three submissions per person.
This campaign is sponsored by Animas, runs through Sept. 30, 2015, and aims to donate a max of $6,500 to JDRF on on or before that date.

I can’t wait to get my next A1C test done (who says that?! but it’s true). I am now two-plus months into my use of new inhaled insulin Afrezza, and frankly I’m blown away by how well it performs (ooh, pun!)

Today is my birthday* -- always a good time to reflect on life and our place in it. I've been aware lately that as I approach my 12-years-with-diabetes mark, it slips my mind sometimes (sort of).
