Connection: Person with type 1 diabetes

Standout Quote: “I spent a lot of time ignoring diabetes. I would go months without checking my blood sugar. I would still take my insulin – I never missed a shot, but I would never check my blood. I just hated it. I went a long, long time that way – not checking, not caring. In the back of my mind, it felt like it was a part of my life I didn’t want to face; didn’t want to deal with – so I didn’t. [after being in the hospital] I think seeing the fear and being scared myself was one of the reasons why I finally went and saw an endocrinologist, and found out my A1C was 12.5, and found out that that was bad. (I had never known my A1C before that.)”
