Yesterday, 16.10.2021, was my second birthday this month. Today is my 23rd DIAversary. I still can’t believe that so many years have passed.
Since the beginning of the diagnosis, I have had over 70,000 blood sugar tests and 40,000 injections. And I am only 29 years old. A lot of people who are living with diabetes will agree with me that diabetes is hard. But they would also agree that we are more than a disease or a sickness. We are children, young people, adults and parents with love in our hearts and beauty in our souls.
My 23rd DIAversary – What I have learned?
I the past 23 years, I have learned a lot. Below, you can find the most important things for me.
My health is my number 1 priority
Without it, nothing in life is fun or enjoyable. Staying healthy requires constant effort. To be honest, sometimes that effort requires far greater commitment in the face of pleasure and convenience.
I accepted myself and enjoy my life
Yes, living with type 1 diabetes has taught me to be not only healthier but also happier. I feel very good in my own skin, constantly energized and always ready to do a lot of things. I also exercise and enjoy eating healthy food.
Diabetes does not stop me from doing anything
I have done many things in my life. And I’m grateful for that. Of course, this would not have been possible without the support of my parents. Living with type 1 diabetes gives me the strength to do whatever I want and motivates me to enjoy and rejoice even more.
23rd DIAversary to me – The celebration
In order to mark this day, I decided to try the famous Tiramisu Vegan Cheesecake from Healthyish.healthyish. Mmmm, it is so delicious
I have the power and my health is in my hands. Also, I won’t let diabetes rule me. I have done a lot so far and I will still continue doing a lot of things.
