I was 16 years old when I got diagnosed with diabetes. I had been using the bathroom a lot, drinking a lot of water, and eating anything that I could find. I was taken to a children’s hospital, where I was given a big bag of insulin to bring down my A1C. I then had to do a week of classes. It seemed like nobody wanted to help me, but no one in my community really understood diabetes.

Everyone that I grew up with seemed to live the same life, with the same happy family and suburban home. My house looked like theirs, but I quickly realized the inside of it felt much different. My dad was diagnosed with Leukemia when I was 6 months old and he died when I was four. I don’t really know anything about him. I only know a feeling that he gave me: love and security. I still feel that in some things and I think it’s him letting me know I’m gonna be alright.
