Welcome to my site. My name is Rien, and I’m a diabetic. A latecomer to the party, I was diagnosed with type 1 at the end of 2014, just after my sixtieth birthday.

The diabetes learning curve looks more like a rollercoaster than a curve. I expect most diabetics would recognise themselves in this.

Through this site I want to share what works for me, and what doesn’t. For me the internet is a godsend. The diabetic journey can be lonely, but I never feel alone.

I’m a passionate photographer (strictly amateur). What better place to show off my pictures than here!

Enjoy your visit.
