My name is Hannah Amelia McKay. I am 26-years-old and live in Aberdeen, Scotland. To most people I look like a normal, healthy adult but this is not the case. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in May 2015.
It came as a massive shock and I’m not ashamed to admit that there were a lot of tears and a little bit of panic as I realised my life had changed forever. I quickly decided that the best thing to do was to accept what had happened and to take control. Despite this decision it hasn’t always been easy and I can often struggle.
