Connection: Person with type 1 diabetes

Standout Quote: {In a letter to a younger version of herself} “You are in control. Sometimes you will not feeling like testing. Sometimes you will want to cry because you have simply had enough. Some days, even after 11 years, you will still feel like you have no idea what you’re doing. Keep going. I promise that if you monitor your blood sugars, eat healthy and take insulin when you’re supposed to, that you will feel great about yourself. On some days, you will dream about what life would be like if you were “normal”, but you can’t think that way. You ARE normal.”
