Type 1 in the Time of COVID-19

***ALERT!!!ALERT!!!SPECIAL EPISODE!!!SPECIAL EPISODE***  COVID 19 has brought the world to a halt and while everyone strives to find their way through this new normal of sheltering in place and flattening the curve, those of us with a less than functioning pancreas have to do so on top of what Type 1 already demands of us. It’s a kind of anxiety that the Type 1 community has literally never had to go through to date so I felt the need to reach out and ask for help from someone who gets not just the Type 1 of it all but the COVID of it all too. Enter Dr, Hannah Hamlin, a medical resident who JUST SO HAPPENS to live with and manage her own Type 1 like many of us. In this special episode, I ask Hannah all my burning and anxiety-induced COVID questions and get all the REAL Type 1 answers with a medical degree to back them up. So wash those hands and maintain an appropriate social distance while we all listen as Hannah breaks COVID down for the Type 1 crowd. This special episode of @askmeaboutmytype1 is now live everywhere you listen to podcasts.
