15 years with diabetes

15 years living with Type 1 diabetes today. A decade and a half since the shock diagnosis that I thought would ruin my life… and then didn’t. At all.

I will not go so far as to say I’m grateful for diabetes, but I will say that most days it doesn’t impact my life negatively. It has become my second skin.

I am deeply grateful for the work I get to do with and the community of people living with diabetes I am now a part of. And I can tell that having diabetes has taught me a lot of lessons that I would otherwise have avoided for many more years (hi there control and perfectionism! 👋🏻)

I wrote a little something on the Sweet Life blog about 15 things diabetes has taught me – check it out on (link in Stories).

Here’s to the next 15 years of invisible chronic illness! I wonder what delightful things are going to happen along the way? ✨
