Without diabetes I wouldn't be writing a blog about someone I met while chasing my dream. I didn't know it at the time but this person would be there for me no matter what. When you hear that you are the motivation for someone that you look up too, it makes you reflect on everything in your diabetes life.
I'm in a great spot diabetes wise and life wise. That little boy that was diagnosed at the age of eight is now living his dream at the age of thirty-six. I have diabetes to thank for all of it, from bags of skittles to Fiber One bars in Boston. From lighthouses to time in a city that I loved when I was a kid, everything is connecting and I owe it all to diabetes. Diabetes has taught me how to live the life I have always imagined because diabetes has taught me how to enjoy every moment that life has to offer. Diabetes has given me a friend that has changed my life, I can't thank this friend for all that he has done for me.
