I've always referred to my T1 diabetes as an unseen illness, because I do sometimes think that people don’t understand my pain when I'm having a hypo, especially on the London Underground!  I get quite self-conscious and I'm sure other commuters wonder why I’m inhaling fruit pastels.

Today I’ll be speaking to Emily, a friend who also understands this pain, but not as a T1 diabetic.   I've asked Emily to come on to talk about her crohn's disease diagnosis and how she manages it day to day.  It's a really eye-opening window into another condition and I think there are some shared experiences that are useful to diabetics too.
