About me

I was diagnosed type 1 when I was 9 and have been on insulin ever since. I have always tried to be well controlled and up until almost 2 years ago I had no complications. And then at 43 I had a heart attack. They found serious heart disease and I now have 12 stents in my heart to reopen the arteries that have been closing. It has been a trying 2 years for me and my family and is a continuing battle. Other than being diabetic I had no other risk factors like being overweight, family history, high cholestrol, or high blood pressure and I have never smoked. They really have no answers for me as to why this has happened to me so young and why it is so severe. I have tried very hard to keep myself in good control trying to avoid complications, ( my a1c has always been below 7 usually in the low 6's) but for some reason this is the one that I have been dealt and it has been a biggie. I do the best I can to cope, I exercise, I eat very healthy, watch my blood sugars like a watchdog and try to maintain a positive attitude above all. I feel that I am blessed to still be alive with the severity of the heart disease. So I am taking it one day at a time and doing the best I can, I am going to live my life and not let this stop me!
