Joyce / Type 1 Diabetic: 43 years / Diagnosed: 13 years old

 “Diabetic children area unique breed, they are either extremely defiant or extremely diligent. I was the extremely diligent kid, who was determined to prove doctors wrong. And when I was diagnosed it was get ready for the worst, I was told I was going to die young, I was told don’t even think about having children. And those were word that were not minced, they were said straight up, that this is a problem . . . In today’s world, a diagnoses for children as Type 1 is not a death sentence anymore, it’s just a ‘let’s figure out how we can work this into our lives.”
