I was diagnosed at the age of 5 . I have struggled and fought with my diabetes a lot especially during my teen years. I suffered DKA when I was 14 and almost lost my life . I learned from that day forward that I needed to love myself and take care of myself . It happened because I wasn’t eating or taking my insulin. Now I’m 20 years old and healthy.
