This is the story of a diabetes blogger who used her personal blog to tell her story and share her experience with diabetes.
It started as a fun hobby for her but the more she learned about diabetes and how it affects her life the more it changed her outlook on life.
She said that her passion for writing was something that she shared with friends, family and strangers, so she thought it would be fun to share her story.
“I have a blog so it’s really important to share with others, especially to people who are just starting to experience it and maybe to help other people,” she said.
As part of her blog, she also shares information about diabetes.
“It helps me be more aware of what my diabetes is and that’s also helped me to keep up with all the health issues I have,” she explained.
“I love to share my story because I have never experienced anything like this.
I was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 13 and I’ve never felt so alone, so scared, and depressed,” she added.
She said she’s not just living a life of pain and misery, she’s also experiencing all the ups and downs that come with diabetes, but she is doing it for her family.
When she first came out as diabetic she said that the diagnosis was traumatic, but that the story she shared has helped her cope.
With the help of her friends, she now finds it hard to believe that she has the condition, but her life is better for having her story out there.
