You're Not Alone! I understand


(Autumn) #1

Hello! My name is Autumn, and I’m a T1D (Type 1 Diabetic) female and was diagnosed at 9 Months old. I used to hate myself with my diabetes and was extremely depressed about all my “limitations” especially during middle school and high school but I’ve overcome all that hate and self pity and now I embrace my disease because it didn’t have to define who I am despite it having a huge role in my life. If anyone is struggling with dealing with this lifestyle, feel free to contact me! Doesnt matter if you’re a newly diagnosed diabetic or have had it for years, all are welcome :innocent:

Hey Autumn. Just like Cassidy, I’m 13 and was diagnosed as a young child (7 years old). I’m In 8th grade and I feel so left out because all the other students are participating in parties and other fun activities. I don’t like feeling left out. And it’s not only parties but sports as well. My diabetes scedule is too busy and my blood sugars are too crazy! Any advice on how to not feel so left out?
