Let's not kid ourselves, life with Type 1 diabetes is NOT normal. There is no denying it.
Pricking your finger 6 times a day is NOT normal
Giving yourself multiple shots a day is NOT normal
Wearing your pancreas on the outside is NOT normal
Measuring everything you ingest is NOT normal
Counting carbs is NOT normal
Peeing on a stick is NOT normal
Drinking juice boxes in order to stay alive is NOT normal
Living this ABNORMAL life comes with challenges but also many victories.
Everyday is a TREASURE
Beating high blood sugars is INCREDIBLE
Teaching others about the disease is a GIFT
