S2Ep.05 When Type 1s Can't

Type 1 Diabetics can do ANYTHING!! It's a beautiful sentiment about perseverance and determination and how the indomitable spirit of each and every person out there living that Type 1 life can overcome any challenges that this condition of ours throws at us. But as inspiring as this message can be the fact is that it just isn't true. I mean that phrase is ALWAYS followed up by the classic exceptions: military service and flying planes. But while most of us are okay with skipping 5 am PT and not living out of one of those rolly suitcases, there are Type 1s out there who want those very things. Case in point: my Type 1 guest Danielle who was diagnosed while studying to become a commercial airline pilot with hopes of joining the military. Type None guest and Danielle's best friend Roejean joins us as  Danielle tells of how frustrating the above phrase can be when Type 1 is literally the only thing hold you back and I learn what it really means when we say Type 1s can't fly planes. So fasten those seatbelts and put your tray tables in their upright and locked positions because this episode is about to take off so brace yourselves as we learn more about the things that Type 1s CAN'T do for once.    Edited, Produced, and Written by: Walt Drennan Hosted by: Walt Drennan Music by: Afterglow Studios LINK Danielle's Beyond Type 1 Article --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/askmeaboutmyt1/message
