My Autoimmune Diagnosis Changed My Life

In 2015 my life was changed forever. FOREVER. 

I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. It came out of nowhere and even now, 4 years later I still wonder why did this happen to me. However, 4 years later, I’m also at a place of peace. 

Everyone who is close to me already knows. Also, if you happen to see me out and about you might notice a small device. If you’re brave enough to ask, “What is that thing on your arm?”, you will soon know as well.

I’ve decided to share it on my blog because someone else may be going through something similar and it helps when people know they are not alone. 

Instead of writing a very long story, I’ve decided to record it on video. 

In the video, I answer 4 questions?

  1. How did I find out I had Type 1 Diabetes? (min :47 sec)
  2. What is Type 1 Diabetes? (min 3:34)
  3. How has my life changed in the last 4 years and where am I now? (min 5:52)
  4. How can you (as friends) support me? (min 12:12)

I did my first 5k walk for Type 1 Diabetes this weekend with my family. It was emotional, but a happy day.

Do you know someone that has Type 1 Diabetes? Feel free to share this video with someone that may need it
