I’m a normal teenage girl, other than the diabetes of course and I love volleyball and singing. School is really important to me but so are my friends and family.
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
My camp counselor asked my cabin if we could checking our blood sugars by pricking our toes. I hadn’t done it before so I tried it and I believe my meter said I was 76. I checked with my finger right after and it said I was 81. Weird, right?
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
My diabetes has affected my whole family. Not just myself. It got all of us eating healthy, and brought us closer. My dad drank a diet drink for the first time in 30+ years. Diabetes has made me a stronger person. Although I cannot pursue the job I’ve always wanted (military) it has opened my eyes to new opportunities.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
One horse sized duck, like for real, just jump on its back and ride it like a horse. I can also just get a duck call or something.
