Hello,I’m Sean Ahrendt and I’ve lived with T1 for over 25 years.I am also a illustrator with an upcoming comic called Type One. I created my main character Streeze when I was a child and incorporated my journey as Diabetic shortly after I was diagnosed with Diabetes,and added some fantastical elements for escapism and entertainment. I’ve gotten great responses from those that live with TD1 and family members of TD1’s , and encouragement from my team of doctors on getting the book into the hands of the community.I have a preorders open for the Type One Preview book that close June 14th and then off to the printers.
