I have been a type 2 diabetic for over 6+ years now working as a graphic designer during the day and a Postcrossing illustrator on the weekends. I like to listen to songs with poetic meaning and am often lost visualizing them, hoping someday I can be an art director. In an alternate universe, I would like to be a polyglot who happens to be a kick-ass dancer.
Diabetes Type 2
I’m a serial entrepreneur from Singapore. I didn’t grow up with diabetes. I got it from stress that lead to anxiety and after that a burnout. I didn’t hide it, it’s also part of my family history. It was hard for me. I live alone and I manage my business, finance and medical health expenses with the support of government subsidies.
Currently I take 4 times a day Metformin pills. I don’t take any insulin and I never used any other form of medication. It alway have been some brand of Metformin. The dosage has changed with different doctors.
