About Me

Hi! I’m Molly Schreiber- raised in Fairfax, Virginia but I’ve been in Baltimore, Maryland since 1997. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the summer of 1989. My father, grand-father, and cousin all have diabetes as well, so I grew up knowing what a challenging and frustrating disease diabetes can be. For years I managed my disease with test strips and multiple daily injections. In 2000 I got my first insulin pump and haven’t looked back since.

In case Type 1 Diabetes wasn’t a fun enough addition to my life, my immune system decided to throw in Rheumatoid Arthritis in the fall of 2011. This was a game changer for me and still is. In addition to these two diseases, you’ll also see me mention my other health conditions from time to time- Hashimoto’s disease, fibromyalgia, asthma, and neurally mediated hypotension.

I’m married to my best friend, Sean, and we have a son and a daughter (they are both teens, pray for me). We also have a wacky cat- JungleGeorge. I love sports- the Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Ravens, and Washington Wizards are my favs. I love to laugh and try to use humor and a positive attitude to deal with my crappy autoimmune system and anything bad the world throws my way.

I’d love to hear from you- please feel free to send me an email, follow me on Twitter, check out my photos on Instagram, or like my Facebook page. Hope to connect with you!

    Dear Ms. Molly Schreiber,

    I hope this finds you well. My name is Joana Mangune from Health Monitor Network. I am currently writing and researching a piece about rheumatoid arthritis for our Words of Wisdom section and was wondering if you and your rheumatologist would be interested in sharing a brief tip on how to cope and thrive with RA. To give you an idea of what we’re looking for, here is a sample of our previous Words of Wisdom: http://www.epageflip.net/i/344777/9

    Please e-mail me at joanam@healthmonitor.com and let me know if you are able participate and share some RA wisdom with our publication. My deadline is Monday, November 3.

    Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

    All the best,
    Joana Mangune
