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. I’m currently rocking a purple pancreas (Minimed 530G) which is both an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor.
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. I’m still searching for that magical combination of medications that will throw my disease into remission.
I’m married to my best friend, Sean, and we have a son and a daughter (they are both teens, pray for me). We have a wacky cat #JungleGeorge too. 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.
