Type 1 diabetes is no walk in the park. Life is already tough as it is, then you through diabetes into the mix and it upsets the entire apple cart. Some days are great and you think you have conquered diabetes. Other days it seems like everything that can go wrong actually does go wrong. What gave you perfect results yesterday may yield awful results today. That's the unpredictability of the disease we have. Despite the obstacles diabetes constantly throw in our way, we can still achieve our dreams and aspirations in life.
My name is Christopher and I am a type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed at age 6 in 1993 and with good management I have been healthy and complication free to date. Like most persons living with type 1 diabetes, I have had my ups and downs, daily struggles and issues. However, I intend to live my life to the fullest and I will not let diabetes get in my way.
