I was diagnosed when I was 19 years old. I love writing, traveling, meeting new people, sports, and the outdoors. I especially love interacting with the T1 community! Didn’t grow up with diabetes – but even at 19/20 years old it took me a long time to not hide my diabetes. I have truly become much more outspoken and I love sharing my story now.

I was diagnosed when I was 22 years. I believe it may have been LADA so I had it unknowingly a long time and it kind of crept up more prominently. I managed (not very well) at first by just following Dr guidance. Though I was happy at the time to have a ‘resolution’ after so many years of health issues. I still don’t advertise my diabetes often and used to outright hide it.
