"I wish I could change the way that type one and type two are seen. They are seen as the same thing when they are two very different diseases. And I wish people didn't think I had the "bad" diabetes as opposed to the "good" diabetes.

Find other diabetics your own age. People who share your same struggles and experiences. Diabetes can make me feel very alone and knowing there are others like me and knowing they are here for me really helps get me through the rough days."
