Today is Halloween and the end of October, but it’s also the beginning of my third year living with Type 1 Diabetes. Since my diagnosis in October, 2012, I have had over 3,000 insulin shots and about twice as many finger pricks. Tonight my mom talked to me about experimental therapy that JDRF is helping to fund that could someday help Type 1 diabetics like me. I hope it works, but for now my parents and I work hard to keep my glucose numbers in check and my A1C levels between 6 and 7. Of course I have my ups and downs, but I am healthy and happy and can’t wait to go trick-or-treating! Happy Halloween!
