Hello world!

Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to Diabetes Can’t Stop Me – a blog and community all about creating a happy healthy life with diabetes. I am Helen Edwards, person with type 1 diabetes, writer and blogger, diabetes advocate, consultant and speaker. I am also online retailer of sustainable homewares, podcaster, wife, mama to 3 gorgeous boys, and lover of people and planet.

Being all about health and happiness does not mean Diabetes Can’t Stop Me is all about ignoring the hard parts of diabetes, or the hard parts about life!

It is about sharing real stories, tips, ideas and inspiration; standing up for our rights, making sure people with diabetes are heard; and making connections. When you can see the whole picture, you see what is possible and you don’t let diabetes stop you living your life however you desire.
