I have been a Type 1 Diabetic for almost 17 years. There have been many highs and lows. I have learned to appreciate them because they have made me who I am today. Diabetes is my greatest motivator. I love spending time outdoors – whether it is camping, hiking, bike riding, or being out on the lake. I strive to keep tight control so I can enjoy my hobbies and clear my mind. Sometimes, especially living in TX with the heat, things don’t always work out that way but I push on. There’s nothing like finishing a long bike ride or hike and saying “take that Diabetes!”
