On July 6th, 2016, after months of continuously losing weight, eating more, endless thirst, growing fatigue, and unbearable leg cramps, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.

It was a horrifying relief.

I had an answer and a medicine to my most obvious problems. The rest then, was up to me. Choose fear or choose bravery. Be proactive or reactive. Understand my body or remain ignorant. Adjust my lifestyle or refuse.

A year later, I am a baby expert Type 1 Diabadass with much left to learn and a lot of thoughts. Join me on the journey of highs, lows, bionics, and unicorns.
