Age: 27 Year Diagnosed: 2015 Location: Ljubljana, Slovenia
"Before I was diagnosed I was eating so much (I was able to eat 2 pizzas at once). But at the same time, I was losing weight. I was working as an aerobics and pilates instructor at the time, so I just thought it was because I was exercising a lot. Later, I found out that my diabetes was mainly responsible for my weight loss.
Not long ago I realized that diabetes changed me as a person in a positive way. I don't worry about unimportant, little things anymore and I enjoy every moment of life so much more than before I was diagnosed.
Don't judge yourself too much. There are, were, and will be feelings and blood-glucose levels that you cannot control or influence."
"Preden so mi odkrili sladkorno bolezen tipa 1, sem ogromno jedla (tudi 2 pici naenkrat) in hkrati zgubljala težo. Bila sem prepričana, da je velika količina vadbe kriva za to (takrat sem delala kot inštruktorica aerobike in pilatesa), kmalu pa sem ugotovila, da za mojo vitko postavo skrbi predvsem sladkorna.
Pred kratkim sem se zavedla dejstva, da me je sladkorna bolezen spremenila v bolj pozitivno osebo, ki se ne obremenjuje več z nepomembninimi, vsakdanjimi problemi. Bolj intenzivno doživljam in uživam vsak trenutek v življenju, kar mi pred diagnozo ni tako uspevalo.
Ne obojajte se preveč. So, bili so in bodo občutki in vrednosti krvnega sladkorja, na katere ne morete vplivati."
