Welcome to my Personal Page!
SO MANY LIVES ARE TOUCHED BY DIABETES. CHANCES ARE YOUR LIFE IS TOO.
I was diagnosed with the dreaded T1D almost 14 years ago. While diabetes is a disease that is considered "manageable," I want to stress how much effort and thought it takes to keep it managed. Everyone around me needs to be "in the know" and understand what symptoms to recognize in case I'm in need of help. And I have to trust those people. I rely on friends, coworkers and perfect strangers to know what to do. Otherwise, my life is at risk. And when I sleep, I can't manage or test my sugars. I rely on the uncertainty that my body will wake me up. So, I set alarms throughout the night to make sure my sugar is stable. My life is a daily struggle and even though everyone knows that life can generally be unpredictable, most don't realize the unpredictability for a Type 1. Every day is a battle, but every day I am proud to be who I am. I am a Type 1 Diabetic and my battle is finding a cure.
With your help, we will fight for the future where a parent does not have to hear that their child has diabetes. A future where an adult does not have to face the uncertain times ahead after receiving a diabetes diagnosis. A future where you and I will know that we had a part in making this possible.
I truly appreciate your support. Together we can Stop Diabetes!
