I am now almost 21. I was diagnosed the day before my eighth birthday and my younger sister was diagnosed 2 weeks later. It has definitely been a rough almost 13 years but I believe it has made us who we are today.

What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
“Does it hurt?”
Well of course it hurts to poke yourself every single day whether you’re pricking your finger or taking a shot.

Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
A lot people question my diet. They try and tell me I can’t eat certain things which has been proven wrong time and time again.
