13yrs ago today I was in a little room with my family (now called the clinical sciences building on the university of Alberta campus) where the nurses officially diagnosed me with diabetes and gave me my first shot of insulin.
Not even a year before I was crying my head off when the school nurse was trying to give me my grade 5 shots!!
Its like something inside me switched. The diabetes nurse told me I had to do it to live and I thought ‘Ya okay we can do this.’ No tears!
Here’s to balancing life and diabetes…To surviving!!
