Our Monthly Mentor Message!
I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on Martin Luther King Jr. Day my 7th grade year. The reason I still know this date is because I had a basketball game that day and it was the only time I ever missed one of my games- for any reason. I thought about quitting sports because of this disease but you’re going to have to live with it the rest of your life and learn how to adapt. Because of this, my advice is not to change anything with your life. In fact, try to do more. I have found that being involved in organizations and athletics helps keep your sugars in your range. Also, you need to realize that you’re going to have rough patches when maintaining your blood glucose. For me, it was during football season. So to help deal with the rough patches, you have to go back to basics by checking your sugar a little bit more and make sure to actually carb count and not guess on how many carbs are in your meal. The most important thing I think is to this disease is your mindset. If you look at it in a positive manner, then you will do a better job managing the disease. This will also you to stay in control of it instead of letting it control you..
