Living with type 1 diabetes for nearly 40 years, today's guest Boo Dendy has seen and experienced it all when it comes to handling this wild condition, but from the early days of his diagnosis he felt like it was something he had to handle alone. Today's episode is a vivid, whistle-stop tour of Boo's life - from raving and rebelling to balancing his love of chocolate and cava with a love of cycling, as well as dealing with mental health challenges and the important role that communication plays in being able to cope with the demands of a chronic illness.
"Just as you think you’ve got it right, something will happen and tip it all over," he says of both life and type 1 diabetes. Speaking publicly about type 1 for the first time in his 40 years with the condition, Boo is open, real, warm and not afraid to tell us about the mishaps and the mess ups - which is exactly what this podcast is all about!
