About Claire Montgomery

My name is Claire Montgomery, and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on March 6, 2007. I started blogging about my experiences with diabetes in 2010. I started blogging about diabetes because I wanted to connect with people my age who had the disease, and I wanted to help people my age with diabetes in thinking that they are not alone. My reasoning still stands today. And even though it is a lot of work, it's worth it when I get emails telling me how my writing helps them to keep fighting. When I'm not blogging or in school, I play lacrosse, the clarinet, and the piano. I also really enjoy participating in marching band, and this year I am the clarinet section leader.
