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.”
