Well guys 8 years ago today I was sitting in the hospital listening to my doctor tell me I had type one diabetes. They tell you it gets easier. It doesn’t. They tell you life goes back to normal. It doesn’t. I am a proud owner of a useless pancreas… luckily I learned how to live my life to the fullest with this disease. I have a pump, which is my pancreas on my hip. And I work a full time job and go to school full time with total control of my disease. I have a fantastic support system. I met the love of my life. I’ve become the dancer I wanted to be. What more can I ask for? This disease sucks and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone, but it’s definitely made me a strong human being and I know I can handle it all now.
Diabetes Awareness Month
Following my last entry of how hardships can either be obstacles or opportunities, Hannah paves the way of turning a bad hand into one that spreads love and inspiration to those around her. Despite her situation, she’s learned to appreciate this insufficiency as a newfound blessing. It has given her the OPPORTUNITY to inspire other diabetics to cope and thrive as she is a counselor at Camp Kudzu, a summer program for diabetic kids. It has given her the OPPORTUNITY, when she’s not at camp, to nanny for other diabetic families to ease the load that she witnessed with her own family. And It has given her the OPPORTUNITY to pursue a passion into becoming a Nurse so that she can work with Pediatrics whom also suffer from diabetes.
“Yes, diabetes sucks, if there was a cure, anybody would take it. However, it has given me the OPPORTUNITY to meet so many amazing people and form everlasting bonds. A proud owner of a useless Pancreas!” – Hannah. Most people would see Hannah’s situation with sympathy and pity, but as someone who has had the opportunity to personally get to know her, I couldn’t be more inspired by all she has done for her community and her tenacious soul to help those around her. It is true what they say, Our Biggest Tests Become Our Biggest Testimonies.
