Wordless Wednesday #6

Happy Diabetes Awareness Month Friends! My aim this month is to try and spread as much awareness for diabetes as I can.  As someone who advocates for diabetes, I want to continue to share the correct message about what it truly means to live with this condition.

JDRF have created an amazing tool which helps diabetics calculate some of their personal daily diabetes stats. I wanted to share my stats with you so you can have an insight into what my life with this condition has been like and what it has taken for me to still be here living a healthy life style.

This is a rough calculation as there wasn’t an option to enter how many injections you took per day. In my case, I went from 2 injections a day to 5 injections a day in my teens, therefore the number would probably be a lot higher.

These calculations are for my time on an Insulin Pump – 7 years and 5 months.
