"I don't like diabetes, but I love the challenge of hypos, the challenge of working out how much insulin to give, the challenge of doing my injections and bloods all by myself. I think what I hated most though, when reading about it, was finding out that it was a DISEASE and that there was no CURE. Well, there isn't a cure. Not YET. But that doesn't mean there won't be one, right? And until then, Isupport Diabetes UKall the way. I'd love to hear other people's stories. And I hope you all know, diabetes can't stop you from being yourself and having fun and doing what you love!!!!!!"
