Tell us more about you (optional)
My name is Brittany. I am 19 and have had T1 diabetes for the past 18 years. I was also diagnosed with major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety at 13 then following that, Celiac disease at the age 15. My A1C has NEVER been below 10, but I am fighting to change that, it is just hard because of my depression. I do not have any diabetic friends, so I thought maybe making an account here could change that.
I am very nice. I enjoy the outdoors,reading, music,and TV. For exercise I usually run or go on walks. I am currently a student at my local community college, where I am finishing up my pre-reqs in order to start the nursing program to become an RN. I one day hope to have children and that is my main reason for keeping hope, even though it is sometimes a challenge!
