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.
