Janet was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 16, it wasn’t until Ben Breedlove made her realize life is too short to dwell on the small stuff. Thanks to Ben, Janet has grown an appreciation to take control of her diabetes and to not let it take over her life. Unfortunately Ben passed at the age of 18 due to complications.

In honor of Ben, Janet tells us what it’s like living a life with type 1 diabetes, and how she’s found the blessing in life that won’t let her diabetes take control. Despite the ups and downs diabetes may bring her, Janet won’t let it bring her down!
