Ginny is a retired young 62 year old woman who has type 2 diabetes, along with her husband Ron. She was diagnosed in her mid-40's after her divorce. When she met her husband 20 years ago that was one of the things they had in common. Ginny's mother and maternal grandfather also had diabetes so it is something she was familiar with but when they were diagnosed there was not a lot of information for people to read. The internet didn't exist in the average household 40 years ago.

Ginny was diagnosed when she started showing all the classic signs such as terrible thirst, frequent urination, headaches, and of course fruity breath.

Since her retirement she has taken to the internet to find recipes and tips from other diabetics. Ginny is an insulin dependent diabetic so control of her glucose is very important. She looks forward to writing about her experiences.
