This one's for you, friends! You're not alone.

I know it, because 100,000 downloads of this little baby podcast say it's so, and I know for a fact that's not just my mum downloading her own episode 100,000 times.

This bonus episode, the finale of season 9, is a celebration of you doing everything in your power to get through each day with type 1 diabetes, as you adapt to the fact that every day means something entirely different. Sometimes it's big and bright and bold and powerful, and sometimes it's muted and exhausted. Sometimes it's really lonely. We feel all of it.

This episode is a dive into what I believe is one of the fundamentals of being human - what it means to feel connected, to feel part of something. And therefore, what it means to be alone. And this is SO pertinent to type 1 diabetes, because for me at least, it forces me to confront being alone, to be alone within the experience of our daily lives, each and every day.

Which is also the reason this podcasts exists.

And yet. Look what you made me do, type 1 diabetes. We built a thousands strong collective of people saying 'I get it'. 'I feel it too'. HOW COOL IS THAT?!

Thank you, all of you <3 and thanks to my amazing guests, and lovely Ami who features in all of The Diaries episodes. This one's for you if you feel overwhelmed, alone, tired, frustrated, alone. But also if you feel calm, proud, resilient, strong. You can be 'and' as well as 'or', especially when it comes to a condition as complicated and contradictory as type 1 diabetes. I am, and I'm so thankful that you're here with me, figuring it out alongside me.

I get it. I feel it too. You're not alone.

Come and say hi on Instagram.
