Diabetic…. A word that describes me but does not define me….Something that millions of people live with everyday….I hated this disease when I was diagnosed, however after coming to the realization that it is never going away… I decided to control it and not vice versa!! I have been a nurse for nine years now and I love to educate people about it. It’s easier to get through to people when they hear it coming from someone who deals with it everyday. My brother is also type 1 and we go through the struggles everyday together. The highs and the lows, literally. I’m now striving to be a personal trainer and show everyone that just because you have diabetes, well you can still do it… Whatever “it” is…. I will not let this disease win… I will always conquer…At the end of the day…. I win because I fight the good fight!!!
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
Diabetes has taught me that I am stronger than I ever thought I could be!!
