Featured wedding Sunday Styles today: Bridget Kelly and Eric Strauss. Bigfoot cool mom call tell read this story. Hey! Type 1! Happy happy wedding. Happy love. (Also survivor of rape, multiple gunshot wound; also Catholic marries Jew; many heartbreaking/interesting details this romance.) Vows piece written by bride father. Skip to diabetes portion:
Two months after Bridget’s 2002 attack, her pancreas stopped producing insulin and her blood-sugar readings went very high. At 25, through no fault of her own, she had Type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes. It was another life-changing event. Like the three million or so other Americans with the disease, she must prick her finger several times a day and regulate her food intake and insulin injections. It is an imposing and constant balancing act for her.
Also this: Bridget, wearing a Ramona Ponce gown specially designed with an insulin pump pocket. Lovely.
