If I answer you that question with 100% being honest, yes it does. Diabetes came into my life drastically. The learning and the experince and overcoming certain things is so hard. Having diabetes makes me question myself a lot. Will i be good enough ? Will i finish High School ?etc… All of these question on my mind have and answer and it’s yes. I am good enough , and I am capable of finishing High School. But there are times that my mind doesn’t think like that. Diabetes has taught me so many things but it’s teaching me to love myself once again. On the bad day I wanna give up but i have to remember that diabetes isn’t stronger then me. I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror and be proud of the person I am. I know it takes time but you have to start from somewhere.
