    Connection: Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 18

    Quote: “The hardest thing for me is… people feel sorry for me because I have diabetes, and I don’t really like that because it makes me realize how sick I actually am. I feel like I can live with my diabetes, but I have a really hard time living with all of these ‘I’m so sorry for you’ comments.

    Remember that you are strong. You are brave. And you’re definitely not alone.”

    ” I was diagnosed at age 33, mid half-marathon training when I suffered a severe foot injury.  I wasn’t sure if running again would be possible because of the diabetes and the 4 bone fusion I had in my right foot in December.  I was determined to prove everyone wrong and on Oct 27, a little over a year later, I PR’d in the Houston Half Marathon – 2:2:00.  Not bad for someone who almost died from DKA last May and who just started walking again in April.  #DwontStopME”
