The Me Stuff!
Hey ya'll! Im a 24 yr old T1 diabetic since the age of 15. I would have never of known I had the betes if it were not for my eyes changing like a million times in 3 months! Getting my blood checked, i was immediatly rushed to Childrens Hospital here In Austin w/ a BG reading of 986. To this day, my diabetes has been extremely aggressive no matter how well I take care of myself. I deal w multiple apathies, peripheral,autonomic and of course retinopathy which has now led me to become legally blind as well as gastroparesis (anyone need a Boost?). Its been about 2 months now that I had my SCS implanted to try w my neuropathy...not to impressed btw!
Im probably the most easy going, fun loving girl you will ever come across who loves laughing till I wanna pee my pants and my sides hurt! Im a huge HUGE music nerd/junkie (potato-potato right?) When the pain isnt to bad, i love the outdoors, esp if Im around water or getting dirty somewhere. In the past 7 yrs of being diabetic, I have yet to actually make any relationships with any other t1's and its quite sad! Its hard not being able to relate to anyone or have someone I can just joke about a test strip sticking to the bottem of my foot and they know how funny that is. So please dont hesitate in talkin to me, I may have some kind of profound knowledge, or better yet a good sarcastic comment or two to share!
