Transcend Warrior – Sarah Parmater

My Story:

I have been blessed with Diabetes. Yes, it may seem weird to say blessed with this disease, but it is true. There are so many different things that can go wrong with your body, I just happen to have Diabetes. In February I did celebrate 40 yrs. of living with Diabetes. I will not lie, it hasn’t always been easy, in fact there are times where I didn’t want it at all. There have been times where I had to be rushed to the ER because of a low blood glucose level. Thank goodness my husband was at home to help and get the ambulance called. I am not proud of those times, but it happens. You as a person do not try to plan to go low, it just happens sometimes. Every day is a challenge, but I work hard at keeping myself healthy. I do try to work out every day, eat a well-balanced diet, drink lots of water, and just live my life. There is never a dull moment. Through all of these years of hard work, I do not have any complications! For this I am thankful to God, my husband, son, Dr.’s, friends and parents. So, I keep going and keep on working hard at keeping myself healthy and alive.
