Hi! I was diagnosed at age 14 a little older than the age most people end up diagnosed, although many times I’ve been ready to quit I haven’t yet! I have an uncle who screwed up and because of it has a lot of issues. He’s my hero and my grandfather who unfortunately died from a heart attack who also had diabetes. Everything I do with my life and taking care of my diabetes I do because I don’t wanna be like my grandfather and uncle. Heck I’m about to graduate and am pursuing my dream of singing and I’m probably going to college. I’m not gonna let my diabetes hold me back from what I do and I’m gonna keep trying.
