Age: 17 Year Diagnosed: 2008 Location: Huntington Beach, CA


"I honestly thought I would have to eat salads for the rest of my life. I was really upset because I didn't know anything about my diagnosis yet.

I always correct people when they are wrong and it doesn't bother me because who can blame them for not knowing about Type 1? its not as commonly know as Type 2. I've had nurses in school who knew less than I did."
