As we roll into the New Year, I’m reminded how living with Type 1 diabetes can make things a little challenging at times. In this episode, Justin shares how he wasn’t going to let his new diagnosis keep him from having the time of his life at Burning Man, an annual event in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, where people gather for around nine days to celebrate artistic self-expression. Good times.
BIO: Justin has been a content creator for over 5 years. When he was diagnosed with T1D in May 2021, with the help of the diabetes community on TikTok, he was inspired to document his journey. His goal was to educate and help others feel less alone as he learned how to manage his diabetes. For over a year now, he has continued to share his experiences and diabetes management on social media with hopes of creating more education and support, and self-love in the diabetes community.
