Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
I was told that I would never have children. I busted my butt to be in the best control of my life, I now have the coolest15 year old son out there!
How do you inspire others?
No matter what, I am always smiling and nice. Always have something to make everyone smile or laugh….it can always be worse, and at times has been. I am grateful for each day I have, even if it is a lousy one!
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
I suffer from depression along with diabetes. I also have chronic pain, hypothyroidism and coronary artery disease. In person I look healthy, inside I may be in pain that day…..but someone always has it worse than I do. I am a fighter. My former endo told me I would never live to see age 40…..I proved her wrong and celebrate each day I do prove her wrong!
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
Bring on the ducks no matter the size! I would bake them, fry them, make soup of them.
