"Being a touring musician is not the easiest thing when you have diabetes, healthy food is not always an option, my blood sugars can get pretty wonky, and there are times when I just don't feel like exercising because I'm so exhausted from playing shows and traveling. But the silver lining is that everywhere I go, in almost every city I go to, other diabetic girls come to our shows and talk to me about their journey with diabetes and how they deal with it and it makes me feel so much better about all the frustrations I have and what I go through."
