Don’t Be Ashamed Of Your Diabetes

Take it from this Type 1 teen, she didn’t know how serious her diabetes was until a school project showed her the power diabetes advocacy gave others. Listen as she admits that she resented her diabetes, pretended she didn’t have it, and didn’t care to manage it, leading her to be hospitalized three times.

Her emergency visits and this school project hit her hard and educated her more about the illness and the dangers that come with it. Don’t be ashamed that your diabetes makes you different, you may have an illness that not everyone has but you can still live a life just like the rest of them!
