I have no memory of life without diabetes.. I was diagnosed the same month my brother was born so my family was thrown a major curve ball.. I went thru my phase of not wanting to deal with it and ignoring what was most important but I have changed that.. I want to live a long healthy life despite what statistics say..

What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
There are people that have thought that I lie about being diabetic because I don’t “look” like one.. Because this world has made it seem like the only people who are diabetic are obese!! So when they find out how long I’ve been diabetic their response 9 times out of 10 is that my parents must have let me eat too much junk food as a kid and that’s why I became diabetic..

Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
Every day. I bust my ass at work even when my body tells me to chill out because I’m that kind of person..

Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
One horse sized duck.. Go big or go home!!
