When I was first diagnosed with type 2 I was so devastated because my father had it and from many years of over eating and drinking and not taking medication he had a heart attack and stroke so I felt that that’s what my future holds. I was working out, eating right and trying to do all the right things. Well, after 3 months a family member was killed and I fell off and got depressed and didn’t care. I told myself I’m going eat whatever so today I’m still not doing my best but I’m trying. I do take my medication everyday and try to eat better. It’s a work in progress and I do want to learn more and feel better about my diabetes because as I’ve seen it’s not a death sentence it’s more of a reality check and it makes you more aware so I’m going to keep trucking.
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
Can you eat sugar?
I’m like >:/
How do you inspire others?
I always say as long as you understand how your feeling and you put the rite things in it and you take your meds there is nothing you can’t do its more mental for me there’s days were I get mad at the universe cause I’m watching everyone eating things I wish I could I also do makeup that makes me and others feel great
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Mentally I’m stronger and physically I’ve lost about 20 lbs. I’m proud but find it hard to lose more. I feel stuck lol. Stuck on them tacos hahah jk. Emotionally I’m scared for the future cause I would love to have children one day so I need to prepare my body and mind.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
100 regular ducks cause you can punch them in the face and you have several coming at you instead of a big heavy horse duck ouchh…lol
