Hi my fellow diabetic warriors 💪 I am Traci- a fourth year medical student, currently 22 years old, living in Sunny South Africa. I was diagnosed with type one diabetes at the age of twenty, joining my T1D younger brother who was diagnosed 6 years earlier at the age of 13.
It was a devastating diagnosis which has interestingly lead me on an amazing, rewarding and postive journey of self discovery. It has taught me discipline, determination, patience and respect for my body. It’s challenges have brought frustration and tears, but also HEAPS of positivity and growth.😄
Instagram has provided an amazing opportunity to share my happy journey as well as being able draw inspiration and strength from all of you, while hopefully inspiring others as I go along. We have a special community with a shared understanding of the difficulties of diabetes and for that I am truly grateful😄 Keep postive, this is our fight to win😙
