Transcend Warrior – Taylor McNeil

My Story:

I try to keep it on the down low, as if it was a normal thing. Since it’s not I do have to miss class, and sit out in activities accordingly. What keeps me going is encouragement to get on the road to get accepted for applying for an insulin pump. When I was little it was scarier and didn’t think about how much of an impact it would truly be on my diabetic lifestyle. As getting my cgm was such a blessing, I can’t even imagine life without having to take shots!! The shots have now started to bruise and cause scar tissue to form at the sights and are very swollen!! Sometimes it sucks, but I try to look at the bright side. I get to skip the lines at Disney. Once I get a pump, I can make it all cute and have competitions with others to see who has the better blood sugar!! It can be tough, but I’m a diabetic warrior 💙 can’t wait to try out this gel!!
