Madelyn, living with diabetes since 2001

Type 1 Diabetes

You are not alone. There will be bad times so make sure to be open with those close to you so that you have support during those bad times. I used to be very closed off about my diabetes and this made those bad times really rough but the best thing I ever did was being more open and communicating with those close to me so that when times are bad, they are there for me. There will also be good times. Being a Medtronic insulin pump and gcm user there are times after 20 years that I can forget I have diabetes which is such an amazing blessing vs how life was when I was first diagnosed.
