Congrats of managing your diabetes. We all have had our points where diabetes beats us up but overcoming that and moving on is what counts. It's a great feeling when you're on top of your diabetes care :)

You will go far with having your own business in the diabetes field. It's a growing disease that affects so many people. Funny fact, Walt Disney was fired as a newspaper editor for his lack of imagination. Look at what he accomplished! Don't give up on your dream. Have a great week!!! Talk with you later :)
