I was feeling very wierd for 3 months. I was extremely fit and healthy before I was diagnosed.  I had a really hard time  at first and was getting possessed for discharge from the military, but I fought it. I took a year and proved that I could perform my duties and haven’t been retained so far.  Each day gets easier and easier.

Question 1: What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?

Why did you eat so much candy as a kid? You have no idea what you  are talking about, let me educate you.

Question 2: Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?

Yes, that I can’t be active duty military… I am still here.

Question 3: How do you inspire others?

Being an active duty memeber of the Coast Guard. 1 of 2 people  ever to be in with type 1.

Question 4: Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.

It has changed every aspect of my life.

Question 5: How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?

I strive to learn something every day, I am working out and eating clean, packing on muscle. I take college classes while in the military. I have proven exceptional control of my diabetes and proven my ability to remain on active duty for the time being.
