I’m a dog and Christ lover and all about being happy. I never try to let my type 1 diabetes get in my way of being carefree and adventurous. When I was told that I was diagnosed with this disease, I was so little and nervous what my life would hold now that I had to do so much for my health. I’ve been told multiple times throughout my life “are you sure you can eat that?” or “can you do that because of your diabetes?” and it does make make me frustrated at times but I need to remember that diabetes isn’t a bad thing. If anything, it inspires me. It’s part of me and i’m blessed to inspire others and share my story!
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
Especially at birthday parties for my friends and family, I really have to stay on top of my diabetes and make sure by blood stays in good range.
