Tell your story as to why you want to become a Diabetic Angel or start your own chapter of the Diabetic Angels and maybe your story will be featured!
Hi Ive had Diabetes since I was 8 years old now I am 28 years old, so its been 20 years. Its been so hard and I've been on shots, insulin pump, and the omnipod. They all have been so awesome and super happy to be off shots but even at that hey it helped me so I was happy. It is very hard at times and ver frustrating and sad but need to have FAITH and POSITIVE attitude that I will be okay. Its been harder ever since 2001 my heart stopped so I was on a peacemaker and now I'm on a Difribulator. But I've been good. My dream is obviously to get rid of my Diabetes and have some chocolate and eat it with no worries ha ha maybe one day, my other dream is to help kids or adults with Diabetes because not that I suffered but a lot of people do and I understand why and Id love to tell them that just because they have Diabetes doesn't mean they don't have a life. Id love to show them so much. Any Diabetic out there or family members who have Diabetic son daughter anything keep your head up and make it the BEST and just take care as much as you can and remember its normal do get sad, mad, frustrated but after that get your head up again and tell yourself "I GOT THIS" :)
