For those of you who don't know, I'm a bassoonist and am very involved with classical music. Recently I took my bassoon in to the shop for maintenance and somehow my mom was talking on the phone to the repairman and revealed that I had diabetes (along the lines of "maintaining bassoons is like trying to control blood sugar"). He said that the principle bassoonist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, David McGill, has had type 1 diabetes since he was a kid which I think is so cool because I thought I was the only bassoonist with type 1 in the whole world (bassoon is not the most common instrument, lol), never mind the principle bassoon of the top orchestra in America!
Who is your favorite person/idol with diabetes and why? This guy is definitely my favorite. Bassoonists are awesome!
