My mum takes an interest in my type 1 (T1D) and I’m blessed to have her in my elite diabetes support crew.

It was your classic Dunner Stunner (local lingo for a beautiful day in Dunedin, NZ) where I was revising material from the comfort of my college room, engrossed in the wonders of the human body system and sipping on a hot chocolate (sugar-free diabetic friendly alternative of course) when I heard a ping.
