This is the face of Type 1 Diabetes.

Type 1 is an auto-immune disease. i didn’t eat too much candy, my pancreas simply stopped working a month before my 3rd birthday.

In 5 months, i will have lived with this chronic illness for 3 decades.

i have to test my blood sugar 6-10 times daily and give myself insulin through my pump, or i die. Simple as that.

Insulin is not a cure. It’s a medication to keep me alive until the cure.

This is the face of Type 1 Diabetes.
