The Diabetic Truth
A place to smile when you are feeling beat.

Dear fellow bloggers


Above is a link to my JDRF Walk page. Now before you scroll past this hear me out!

I am a Type 1 diabetic. I have been a diabetic since I was in 4th grade. I am not going to tell you my sob story because I don’t have one. I am extremely lucky to have family that loves me and an provide for my medical needs. What I want to bring attention to is the amount of disregard for diabetics. We deserve the right to do whatever non-diabetic people do. We are not medical anomalies and I can guarantee that you know someone who is affected by this condition. Do your research because Type 1 diabetes does mean that I cant eat sugar or that I am obese. It is a condition where my pancreas’s cells do not produce insulin. It does not have a cure. This means that I must manually inject prescription medication into myself 5-6 times a day. It is in fact a serious issue. Having a pump does not  cure me of my disease but allows me to live a normal life. So what is my point.

Life is never easy and everyone is thrown an unexpected curveball. Being a diabetic is my curveball. But I am going to work super hard to make the best of it and raise more money than I ever have in past years! I have been a diabetic for 7 years now, and I need your help to make this the best year yet!

I am asking for your support.  Please donate to my personal fundraising efforts. Even $10 can make a difference when lots of people donate. By doing so, you can help me make a difference for millions of people living with type 1 diabetes.

You’re going to make mistakes in life. It’s what you do after the mistakes that counts.
