How do you inspire others?
I train in the gym 5 days a week and now hold a physique most people would want. I’m very positive with what I’ve over come in my short life. Diabetes is only a very small part of it.
Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
Not only do I have diabetes but I was diagnosed with Crohns disease and Avascular necrosis. I’ve also been paralyzed in both arms for 3 months, had a history of blood clots, been forced onto liquid diets, spent months in hospital, dealt with a colostomy bag short term, and major surgeries. All in all they all effect me and it’s hard to keep up with diabetes alone with out other complications.
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Mentally it has made me a stronger person, physically I’ve pushed myself more then I would have if I did not have diabetes so in a way it has improved my physical appearance, emotionally it does hold me back sometimes but I’m quick to work on what’s going on and turn it around.
