Kerri Sparling.

Kerri Morrone SparlingHi!  I'm Kerri Morrone Sparling.  I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on September 11, 1986.  For much of my life, I was the only diabetic I knew.

I started Six Until Me in May of 2005 because I was tired of Googling "diabetes" and coming up with little more than a list of complications and frightening stories.  Where were all the people who were living with this disease, like I have been since I was a little girl?  Was I the only diabetic out there who felt alone?

But then I learned about blogs, and the power of sharing our stories online.  Back when I first started blogging, I was one of four or five diabetes bloggers.  Now I am a proud member of a vast diabetes community who prove every day that I'm not alone with this disease. 

I am a patient blogger, freelance writer, and social media consultant. I truly love what I do for work and am so proud to be a member of the diabetes community.

But there's more to me than diabetes. 

I keep an extensive collection of photos on my Flickr account, where you'll find my Diabetes365 experience, including a high volume of photos of my cats, and some of my daughter.  I love my camera and bring it everywhere I go.  I'm also a frequenter of Twitter and Facebook, but let's be honest - sometimes that social networking stuff can wear you down.

I live in Rhode Island with my husband, Chris, and our daughter, Birdy.  There are a few cats rolling around the place, and I'm fairly certain there's a hedgehog living under our back porch. 

If you'd like to connect, please email me.  You can also contact me by mail at Kerri Sparling, c/o Six Until Me, 716 Centre of New England Blvd, Coventry, RI, 02816.
