Hello! My name is Miia. I’m a 31 year old woman from Finland. I was expecting our first baby. It was March 19th when the symptoms started. Nobody knew what was wrong. It was 4 days later when I needed to go to the hospital because I was in a really bad shape. Later that night, just in time, the doctors said that I have type 1 diabetes. My blood sugar level was 31.6. I had ketoacidosis. They send me to bigger hospital and there I was in ER for two days.
This has been so rough. But one thing is sure. I’m not going to give up! And I ‘m going to survive with diabetes. And thankfully the start with diabetes has been easy and it’s under control. Everything is so new to me that every day I learn something new and I need every support I can get. Thankfully I survived.
