This is the beginning of a series where I interview members of Team Bike Beyond to figure out what compelled them to sign up for this team and how the journey has changed them since.


This first episode is with Cassidy, who has spent her whole life listening to her father tell stories from when he biked across the country when he was 22 years old. Now she has her own to share too.

Learning To Live With It

Barbara taught me to give injections

to an orange, thick pop of penetration

through the skin, short smooth glide

into soft tissue under. Slowly, with control,

push down on the plunger, and quick

backward dart toss, remove the syringe.

I practiced in her office, still dazed from

diagnosis, seeing through pinpoint pupils,

eyes after a strobe flash. Stretched like surgical

tubing colorless with tension, I was renamed

after a disease, time now measured in gleaming

needle pricks, insulin units, blood sugar levels.

My wife sobbed in the car parked beneath

the medical building, rusty pipes wrapped and

painted white, strung along the oppressive ceiling.

She cried because we didn’t have much money.

For the money, not for me. In that time of change

there were changes yet to come.

Barbara said I would learn to manage it by myself.

She said I had no choice.

At 13 years old, Craig Stubing started experiencing the symptoms of extremely high blood sugar. Without any experience with type 1 diabetes, his family mistook his symptoms as just puberty. Eventually, a visit to the doctor sent him to the emergency room and his life changed forever. He struggled with disclosing his disease to friends and colleagues, which led him to starting the Beta Cell podcast. #002: Amanda Bar #002: Amanda Bar Tue, 08 Dec 2015 05:49:42 GMT 19:11 tag:soundcloud,2010:tracks/236588907 no https://shows.pippa.io/5a558fa53886138a16a4cc65/5a558fd206b656aa4df16e22 full Amanda Bar was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was just 2 years old. Like many young people with T1D, she struggled with wanting to fit in with her friends who didn’t have diabetes.
