Did you know that some 78,000 children under 15 years develop type 1 diabetes annually worldwide :O
This is what Diabetes is. Not a brownie or pizza.
It’s a disease. A disease that needs to be treated with shots, several times, everyday.
Good thing it’s 4:45 AM and I’m 22.4.
Today, my English teacher helped a lot with my mental breakdown without even knowing it. He gave me 10% extra credit on the following assignment for being powerful and well written.
A note before we proceed: As the title implies, this is a very personal story. The story of how I got diagnosed with Type One Diabetes.
The only detail that I exaggerated because I was told to was driving for five hours when it was more like one. All the other emotions and details are 100% true.
Read at your own risk.
Went to a hockey tournament on the weekend where they gave out juice boxes. I took all of the extras for lows :)
Yay for free juice! #yolo
Insulin is NOT a cure for type one diabetics. It’s life support.
Type 1 Diabetes.
I shouldn’t let it feel like a label, but sometimes it’s hard not to.
Some days I let Diabetes win, and those are the days that I truly hate my disease.
