Connection: Person with type 1 diabetes (27 years since dx)

Standout Quote: “Before I was diagnosed, I almost went into a coma. Doctors didn’t know what the symptoms of diabetes were, or just didn’t care, [or treated me as if I had type 2]. I was struggling with my weight, gastroparesis, neuropathy, diabetic mastopathy, and sometimes depression. I developed diabulimia. […] Since then, I’ve decided I need to make changes. I may not know what the future brings, but I’m still here. I’m not going to be defined by compications, and I’m doing my best every day.”
