Type 1, insulin-dependent diabetes

For most of my life, I have been a type 1 diabetic. Diabetes is a chronic disease and requires intensive insulin therapy. That means I inject 6 or more shots of insulin per day to maintain a close-to-normal A1C. My goal is to eliminate extreme high and low blood sugar levels. It is a daily struggle, and one that will never end.

If you would like to learn more about my experiences with type 1 diabetes, please look under the Health tab. There, I write about my current insulin therapies and thoughts about insulin pumps and other evolving technologies.

Who I am

As for me, I love to write, paint, and think outside the box. I guess I’m different, but I don’t care — it’s who I am and what I do.

I embrace unconventional job opportunities

I’ve been a graphic designer, radio personality, delivered pizza, operated my own printing business, and a U.S. Census taker. Today, I am a creative copywriter and technical writer.

And, just like the great New York City bus driver, Ralph Kramden from The Honeymooners, I’m always on the lookout for the next big opportunity. Ralph was a dreamer, just like many of us are. Yet, when that elusive opportunity would slip from his grasp, he still got up and kept going. Plus, he did it with a smile on his face.

As I follow Ralph’s lead, I will share stock market and business opportunities with you. Along the way, I’ll throw in good nutrition and general health tips I’ve tried myself. That’s what Opportunity Muse is all about.
