Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
Since I was diagnosed at a young age my life has been a roller coaster. I’ve been in the hospital so much that the nurses know me. It’s been a rough life but after all of the being poked and feeling like a pin cuchion I haven’t given up.
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Diabetes has made me a stronger than I ever thought I could be. There were plenty of times that I just wanted to give up but everytime I almost died I would get this strange feeling that everything was going to be alright. As much as I hate this disease I’m glad I have it because it’s made me mature and see the world in a different way.
