Hi My names Amy and I’ve been type 1 for 29 yrs and am a healthy mother of 4. So far no complications and am on blood pressure tablets to prevent kidney damage and have lantus and novo rapid. I’ve had my ups and downs in life but always get through it with a smile 😋 I live in Australia and have two tattoos and a piercing. Funny as docs once told me I couldn’t have those things due to my diabetes AND I was told I would not have healthy children. So I love to prove those kind of people WRONG 😉 I love going to the gym and I am currently studying and working on top of 4 kids and my health, so very busy. Thanks for reading my story of life with type 1 diabetes 😎
How do you inspire others?
By being strong and happy
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
When my sugars go from high to low it really effects my moods which have then impacted on relationships, unless your a type 1 no one understands how you feel in these situations.
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
It has made my mentally tough lol
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
One horse size duck as I love boxing so I’d definitely have a crack 😝
