I, Sonja Cunningham, am a person who has been living with Type 1 Diabetes since 2001. I am not a medical professional nor a mental health professional. The views and opinions expressed in my blog, Mind On Diabetes, are my own opinions and experiences. Mind On Diabetes should not be considered medical or mental health advice.

Mind On Diabetes is meant to be a place for people who have diabetes to gather virtually to share their experiences living with diabetes. Often, people who live with chronic illness appreciate sharing experiences in the interest of obtaining comprehensive care, gathering ideas to run by their care teams, and to feel like they belong somewhere in an ableist world.

I do not write for money, I write for camaraderie. On occasion I will receive gifts from people who appreciate my work, but I do not accept money from any specific company at this point in time.

I vow not to accept money or products from pharmaceutical companies until all insulin is accessible at an affordable price, without a prescription, for all people in the US.
