Our Monthly Mentor Message!
My message to a child recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes is rather simple. Do not let the diabetes stop you for doing things you want to do. I was diagnosed at age 13 and at first I did not know how having Type 1 diabetes would affect my activities but soon learned that I could do everything I always loved to do. I really enjoy playing sports and although it takes extra effort and monitoring, I do not let diabetes keep me from participating. Embrace your Type 1 and do not be ashamed to say that it is a part of who you are. Checking blood sugars and having emergency carbohydrates are part of my routine and they will be a part of your routine too. It is okay. These two little things will help keep you healthy.
You can still go to birthday parties and eat cupcakes. You can still go swimming with your friends. Having diabetes requires discipline and determination but both of those characteristics are positive traits. So stay disciplined and stay determined so that you can do anything and everything you want to do!
Providing opportunities that encourage, educate and create positive outcomes in the lives of children, young people and families whose life long journey includes battling Type 1 diabetes.
