What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
I was asked if I have tried 1/4 cups of apple cider every night to cure my diabetes, I responded with a smile and a no..
Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
No one has ever told me straight up that I couldn’t do something due to having diabetes, but I was told in P.E I couldn’t play dodge ball because they didn’t want my pump to be messed up. Long story short my pump didn’t get messed up!(:
How do you inspire others?
I feel as if I inspire a lot of people to go beyond what they think they can do. A lot of people think that they can’t do something but in the end all they really needed was someone to support them. They needed am example of someone living beyond life and I feel I do live beyond life.
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
Diabetes has affected mentally and physically. I am in the hospital quite a bit so I miss a lot of school time and friend time. I do know that things will get better if I keep a positive mindset(:
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
I think overall diabetes has made me a more responsible, stronger, and healthier person. I am working on a blog to help interact with other people, and I have just gotten my new pump. I know that I am still young but I am very happy about the way I have handled living and adjusting.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
