LIVINGLIVING

sound like 'just' anything! Also, at this

time I was having problems overnight

with control; one time my partner could

not wake me up in the morning and she

called an ambulance. That happened

on one other occasion too. It was all

becoming more of a trial. It was around

this time that I discovered the forum on

www.diabetes.co.uk. I looked around that

for a while, just growing my understanding

of other people's experience of living with

diabetes."

In 2010 Street was extremely relieved

to be told that the retinopathy in his

eyes had receded. "It was at this time

I put my first post onto the forum," he

says, "It was distressing to read about

how many people were struggling with

the condition. The 'internet of diabetes'

was a depressing place, yet my own

experience had not been too bad. I'd

lived a pretty good life, I'd won a Tae

Kwondo competition, played cricket in

Jamaica. I thought that having Type 1

should not stop anyone from achieving

their ambitions."

On the www.diabetes.co.uk

forum he moved from contributing to

being a moderator. He says, "I found I

had to keep repeating the same things as

many of the questions were on the same

issues, asked by someone who'd not

seen the earlier replies. It occurred to me

that doing a blog could be a better way to

do this. I'd put the answers up on there

then link the repeat questions back to it,

so I did not have to copy and paste the

same answer again and again.

Social mobility

"I started writing about diabetes on my

blog www.diabettech.com on 24

December 2014 when I reviewed the

FreeStyle Libre. I was an early adopter

of this novel technology and was curious

about variations of data and experience

that I was reading about online. I was

prepared to undertake some sort of

experimentation on myself. I would wear

a sensor but maybe change which insuIin

I was using in order to see what effect

it had on my control. The Libre sensor

was a tipping point for me, leading to the

blog and to what I do now, which is to

write about insulin action and diabetes

technologies."

When he started his blog, Street

didn't participate in the Diabetes Online

Community on Twitter or Facebook, that

came about after he started blogging and

when, also in 2015, he became involved

in GB.doc (where .doc stands for diabetes

online community not, for any Americans

reading, the Department of Correction). He

says, "I think I joined the diabetes online

community on social media just before it

I used N=1, which is a way to say that the experiments were

being done only on one person, myself "
