Hi, my name is Chasity Marie Looney and I have been a type one diabetic for 15 years . I was diagnosed at the age of 5 . I have struggled and fought with my diabetes a lot especially during my teen years. I suffered DKA when I was 14 and almost lost my life . I learned from that day forward that I needed to love myself and take care of myself . It happened because I wasn’t eating or taking my insulin. Now I’m 20 years old and healthy. Though, I still may not have perfect levels I now have a respect and love for myself and my life . Diabetes is a battle but life is worth the fight . Diabetics just have to taken on more pricks than normal people but that’s why we are stronger than others!
