My name is Bridget. I adore the outdoors, hiking, camping, and kayaking with my friends. I was diagnosed almost a year ago at the ripe old age of 25. It’s been a challenge for me, but the t1d community doesn’t make me feel so alone. Having the support of strangers that share my struggles makes me stronger. Their advice and guidance has made this last year possible. I’m still able to spend much of my time outdoors, just with extra alcohol wipes and juice boxes!
How do you inspire others?
I have an Instagram page with another t1d chick called @BetesBabes and we try to help spread awareness and help others that share our struggles!
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
This last year I learned what it means to be resilient. I am resilient.
