What Diabetes has meant to me this semester

Hi Everyone,Just to start I am currently a Senior at Elizabethtown College located in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania.

The RIGHT food to eat

Hey Everyone,So I don't know about you, but I personally am not a fan of going to the Endo. When ever I do it turns into a lot of DON'T do this and DON'T eat that and make sure you are on a regular eating and sleeping schedule and get plenty of exercise. Sometimes I just want to yell at them and be like 'hello! I am a college student. I have late nights and my schedule is never the same 2 days in a row.' They tell me what I CAN'T do, but never what I CAN do so that is why I am reaching out to…See More

Hey everyone,

So I know I had signed up awhile ago and haven't really been keeping up very well, but as of now I am hoping to change that. First I would like to say that starting sometime in September, myself along with my 3 other roommates will be starting vlogs to talk about our journey through Diabetes as well as our volunteer work with the ADA. If anyone has any comments or questions at anytime, please feel free to comment.
