Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
I was told I couldn’t eat a cookie because of my diabetes so I said yes I can and ate it.

Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
After being on the insulin pump for a week I accidentally overdosed by 100 units. (dont ask how!) Once rushed to the hospital I had the worst experience of my life, due to the night doctor only knowing about “textbook diabetes” and tried to make me eat and drink my way out of it as “insulin is only in your system for 3 hours” I ended up very unwell and stuck on a glucose drip for 7 hours to match the insulin.

This is what led me to take better care of diabetes as I experienced how dangerous this illness can be.

Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
