29 Mar User Stories: Diabetes
“I have been living with Type 1 Diabetes since I was 5 years old. I am now 19, and have been able to manage my illness mostly on my own for about 2 years now. I am doing really well, and am really careful about watching what I eat. I make sure that I stay active. I like to think that my life is no different that other people my age.
Next fall, I will be switching Universities. It will be my first time living away from home. I am nervous about campus life, but am mostly excited. I do worry about how I will manage the stress on my own, and how it will affect my health. I hope that I meet lots of great people and make lots of new friends.”
