After Thoughts: Mike Lawson

Mr. Mike Lawson!

Mr. Mike Lawson!

I am a big fan of Mike Lawson.  He is gifted in delivering powerful messages in very entertaining ways.  Taking diabetes related subjects that are hard to talk about, and TALKING ABOUT THEM!  But that’s not all – he talks about them in a way that makes you “get it”, and also smile, nod, and chuckle along the way.  You need to get more of Mike.

It was such a pleasure chatting with him on Thursday.  We covered a lot of ground.  Everything from a rough misdiagnosis, having to be wealthy to be healthy (living with type 1 diabetes without insurance), all of his current diabetes advocacy projects and ideas, and his introduction to the diabetes online community.  Like so many others, Mike has taken all of the help he’s received from the DOC and is working hard to give at least that much back.

We’re lucky to have you Mike!  Thanks for doing all that you do, and thank you for the opportunity to talk with you!  We all had a lot of fun!

Get more of Mike on Twitter (@MrMikeLawson), YouTube (MrMikeLawson), His Blog (What Some Would Call Lies), and as part of the creative magic at

  • Love Mike Lawson!!! He always makes me smile. I was diagnosed around the same age as him and can relate to so much of what he says in his vlogs. I’m a big fan! :)
