Living with diabetes for so long is such an achievement. If you really think about it, you’re keeping yourself alive every day, and keeping myself alive for 10 years is a huge accomplishment. Looking back on when I was first diagnosed, I’m so glad I have access to all the technology and tools that help me manage my diabetes and make my life so much easier. There have definitely been days where I wanted to give up but I’m so grateful I kept going because I feel like I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been. Once you figure out what works for you, everything kind of just clicks into place and you can get into a good routine and get numbers that you want!
