As the older students came for their assembly, my story quickly changed. They got more details about the bad parts of my life. After I spoke I was very happy to see that the students had questions. A majority of the questions were about cycling but I was very happy when someone asked the famous why question. That is the toughest question I can be asked and I don't have an answer for why I went so long without taking care of myself. I was also happy to spend a few minutes with a student that wanted to talk one on one. That student is why I speak, I could tell that what I said clearly helped this student. That is an amazing moment, I so happy that this student came and spoke with me.
Today was amazing. I had a blast and had a great time hanging out with all of the type 1 diabetics that go to the school. They are amazing people and are doing a much better job then I ever did when I was at that age.
