Type 1 Uncut – Speaking up about life with Diabetes

Type 1 Uncut – Speaking up about life with Diabetes

As I mentioned in my last post, some lovely things are coming out of Diabetes Week 2014. As the week draws to a close I wanted to talk a little bit about the lovely, funny, heart-warming bunch of videos that have been launched this week, aka #Type1Uncut. As a young person, it’s damn hard to […]

YFT1 Cycles 100 Kilometres

YFT1 Cycles 100 Kilometres

Yes, I know, people keep telling me and I’m not one to argue given that it’s 100% fact. I’ve changed. So I made a little video of my exploits as this absolute non-athlete goes on a casual 100km bike ride of a bank holiday Monday, in preparation for my pant-wettingly fast approaching bike ride to […]

YFT1 Goes To A New York Festival

YFT1 Goes To A New York Festival

Watch me first, read me second! Phew. Firstly, this video is obviously in massive antithesis to the zen-like wellness warrior I claim to have become of late as The Big Challenge approaches at a quite frankly FRIGHTENING rate (15 days, but I’m not counting). It just goes to show what can happen in a few short […]

YFT1 Gets Sent Packing…

YFT1 Gets Sent Packing…

Watch me first. Read me second… Ohhh another stuuuuupid video! Apparently you quite liked watching me running around getting drunk and being a general idiot (bar lunges, anyone?) so I thought I’d capture a bit more of my ridiculous existence. Being that it’s summer and given all the extra things we have to consider when […]

YFT1 Goes Drinking…

YFT1 Goes Drinking…

WATCH first, READ second… … Oh hi! That was fun wasn’t it? Really hope you liked it; it marks an exciting gearshift for YFT1 – hopefully lots more where that came from! I wanted to make this video because, as ever, I think it’s really important to emphasise that life doesn’t have to stop because […]

#AskJen – The Video

#AskJen – The Video

That’s right. #AskJen has arrived. So a little while ago myself and Diabetes UK took to the Twittersphere to ask you for your funny, silly, serious, cheeky ANYTHING questions relating to life with Type 1, mostly to laugh (for once, godammit!) at the ridiculous things we find ourselves doing on a daily basis in order to keep […]

A Big Day…

Yes, it’s pancake day, but I don’t mean that. Although I do welcome any excuse to unashamedly face-plant a doughy stack of warm batter perfection. Dribble. Today I have been unveiled to the diabetes community (yes I’m talking myself up) as the new video blogger for Diabetes UK. Admittedly, when it comes down to it, […]

Pizza Perils… Carb Coma!

I talk a LOT about how hard it is to be a diabetic on a day-to-day basis. Not in a ‘woe is me’ way, because there are much worse things out there than diabetes, and actually, despite all the injections and the prescriptions and the hypos, I’m very thankful to be living a pretty normal […]
