Hey! My name is Skylar, I am 15 years old. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 7. I have had diabetes for almost 9 years now. I have been involved in many different types of camps for diabetics. One camp that is my favorite is Camp Seale Harris at Camp ASCCA located on Lake Martin.
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
The weirdest question that I have been asked about diabetes, is “Can you eat that?” And I responded with the answer yes, I can pretty much anything I just have to count my carbs and take insulin for it.
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Diabetes has made me a stronger person. It shows me that even with the disease I can still do everything that any other human being can do. It never stops me from doing anything fun.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
One horse sized duck.
