Type one diabetes is a challenge every single day. Millions of people with type one diabetes are dependent on insulin to live. I was diagnosed when I was 20 years old, and though I’m extremely grateful that I didn’t have to grow up with this disease, it has still been very challenging. When you are diagnosed as an adult you have to completely change the lifestyle that you’re used to. You’re no longer able to eat what you want when you want, without giving it a second thought. Another challenge you face when being diagnosed as an adult is having the memories of how things were when you didn’t have type one.

I’m now on an insulin pump, Omnipod, and I love it. It makes life so much easier. However, I dream every day of not having the haul around supplies or have a gadget attached to me in order to survive.
