Of course having Type 1 is incredibly challenging, but I do believe there are blessings that come in disguise. The five best things about having Type 1 are as follows. First, Diabetics are awesome! When you meet someone who also has Type 1 you immediately have a strong connection and understanding of one another. Second, Diabetics are resilient. We are questioned, poked, and bled everyday, yet we succeed in managing our disease that only makes us stronger. Third, Diabetics are tech-savy! We have robotic pancreases that we get to carry on us at all times. Fourth, Diabetics are in tune with their body. We have the perfect excuse to be interested in our health. Our friends can never give us a hard time about always eating healthy or consistently exercising. We know how to make yourselves feel healthy and are more aware of how we can take care of ourselves. Lastly, Diabetics are positive. It’s too hard to think in the “What if’s?” and “Why Me’s?” so we take our disease on in stride and create our amazing network of support. Take pride in how far you’ve come. Have faith in how far you can go.
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.
