Hey all! My name is Samantha, a lot of people call me Sami. I was diagnosed with Juvenile/Type 1 Diabetes when I was 1 or 2 years old, not really sure exactly. I have been diabetic over 20 years now. My sister was diagnosed at the same time. We are 17 months apart. Over the last 10 years I've had three different minimed models and am finally going to start the Continous Glucose Monitor that has been in the unopened box for over 4 months now.
I recently recieved my Masters degree from the University of Illinois in Law and am working at the Attorney General's Office.
I am in the process of testing for an Islet Cell Transplant at the University of Illinois Chicago. If accepted I would be their first African-American! Cross your fingers and/or say a prayer PLEASE!
Also working really hard to lose 30 pounds and lower my A1c into the 7s. Everyday is a struggle.
Any questions, just ask.
