How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Diabetes has made me look at everyone differently. I wear my omnipod on my arm sometimes and people often ask me what this contraption is? I answer and say, ” I’m type 1 diabetic.” People usually say,”oh I’m so sorry, you’re just so thin and young you must have the easy kind.” I try not to let these comments bother me. I have an invisible illness. I wish there were more awareness. Everyone fights there own battles, so you can’t judge a book by its cover. That’s why I look at everyone differently because I’m fighting my battle. Unseen.
