Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
I was told I wouldn’t be able to do any ‘proper’ exercise. For a long time I believed that, especially after experiencing low and high blood sugars when attempting to exercise. But I tried and tried until I found ways of keeping my blood sugar stable whilst exercising. Now I regularly go to the gym, cycle and go walking.
How do you inspire others?
I never complain about my diabetes, I stay positive and never let my diabetes get in my way of achieving my dreams. I want others to know that no matter what life throws at you, you need to stay positive and never give up on your ambitions.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
100 regular ducks, although I would have to kill them with kindness as ducks are too cute!
