My health has improved so much since I began insulin 2 months ago.

mother was diagnosed with Diabetes in 2000. I knew because it ran in

our family that I would eventually get it, but did not think it would

hit me until I was at least my mothers age.

For most of my teenage and adult life, I have had medical problems. It all started when I…
