Let’s start of with my diagnosis. ———————————————I was diagnosed in 2011, Mother’s Day. I was 8 years old and it was like any other day, despite the terrible stomach pain I woke up with. My mom thinking it was just a UTI got me some cranberry juice. Though the pain got worse... my mom eventually asked me if I needed to go to the hospital. With which I responded “yes.” After saying yes I was taken to the hospital where I had a bunch of test done, and a few hours later they found my issue. I was a Type 1 diabetic, my BG was 774 and my A1C was 17. It was a miracle I was awake and not in a coma, I was rushed by ambulance to a children’s hospital where I stayed for a week and was taught about my chronic illness. No there is no cure for T1D, but you learn to live with it. As it becomes a part of you. ———————————————horrible drawing done by me 😂 any questions you have leave below. Please be respectful, and any rude comments will be removed. ———————————————#t1d#t1dlookslikeme#t1dawareness#t1dteenager
Hi everyone! My name’s Sam and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in August 2016. I’ve heard about Beyond Type One’s Program: Type One Run for awhile now, and was disappointed that Fargo didn’t have a chapter. That’s when I was encouraged to start one here! I really enjoy running and I’ve made it my goal to get more involved in the Type One Diabetes community so I thought this would be a perfect fit! I’m excited to meet more Type One Diabetics in the Fargo area, and share my passion for running with all of you. 💙💉
Happy girl bc the guy working at this AMAZING place today told me one will be opening in Texas soon!!! Woooo! Zero blood sugar spike after eating this super delicious treat with little insulin :) Would highly recommend if there is one near you!!
А вы видели самый красивый гол⚽ #чм2018 , который оформил известный футболист Начо Фернандес в недавнем матче Португалия - Испания и который уже претендует на главный приз #чм ?
Ничего не скажешь, молодец... но нас лично Начо восхищает тем, что все свои профессиональные успехи на самом высоком уровне он достиг, шагая с 12 лет под руку с диабетом 1 типа.
Сегодня он - топовый футболист с блестящей карьерой🏅🎖, который играет за одну из самых больших команд в мире - "Реал" и выиграл Лигу Чемпионов, высшую футбольную дивизию в Испании, Ла Лигу🏆🏆🏆.
А ведь когда ему поставили диагноз, доктор рекомендовал немедленно бросить футбол и даже не рассматривать спорт в качестве профессии, а "заняться здоровьем"!!! К счастью, Начо встретился другой эндокринолог, который убедил его в том, что диабет ни в коем случае не является помехой его карьере в футболе, а наоборот - спорт нужен ему как воздух для здоровой и качественной жизни. И результат этой позитивной стратегии, как говорится, налицо.👍
История Начо доказывает, что у человека с диабетом нет преград для занятия спортом, в том числе профессиональным.
Но мы знаем, что в России некоторые родители и сами молодые люди с диабетом испытывают сложности при посещении спортивных секций, участия в серьезных соревнованиях и т.д.
А вы с этим сталкивались и какие есть способы борьбы с нашей системой спортивного образования⁉️
Surreal to think in just two months I have had type 1 diabetes for 3 years 💙💙 The constant worrying about blood sugar levels, carb counting and injections hasn’t gotten any easier but learning ways to deal with type 1 diabetes has gotten a little bit easier.
Another pic in this outfit only because I’m sorry but captain is so cute.. also real life question.. can you train your own dog who is super smart to be a diabetic alert dog?? Anyone ever try this?? 🤔🧐🤔🧐🖤 #t1dlookslikeme#smartdog

Looking over my shoulder at my 3000+ followers like “OK I SEE YOU INSTAFAM” 😍🤗. But for real, this is a mental #transformationtuesday post as I struggle to release this beast to the public lol🙇🏼♀️. I’ve been self-conscious of the fat I store on my legs since I was 10. I pretty much refused to wear shorts from around 2002-2012, because I was mortified by my cellulite. After finally cutting back my insulin doses and reducing my hypoglycemia back in 2012, I lost some weight and have been working towards leaning out my legs through intensive exercise commitment ever since. While still overcoming my insecurity to even make this post 😨, I am so proud of what these powerful legs have accomplished, and cannot wait to see where my fitness journey takes them next 😍💪🏻. I mean, they have carried me to Ecuador and back, to the Amazon, through a half marathon, through kickboxing and BJJ, and across Yale & BC’s stages to get those diplomas 🎓. They allow me the freedom to explore the world at the pace I like 🏃🏼♀️, so SO WHAT if they get a lil bumpy when I stand certain ways (see above photo lol). I’m not perfect, and I never will be, but I’m finally proud enough of my body that I am willing to post it without editing first. Hope you all can transform your minds to be more loving and accepting as well some day; you deserve that kind of self care ❤️. [hope this answers the question to anyone who has asked me “where do you have cellulite?” Lol - see above!].
This little black box is one of two parts of Lynoxs pancreas. I am very thankful for technology that keeps Lynox alive!! After almost three years this PDM, Personal Diabetes Manager, decided to stop working properly. Talk about freaked out!! Knowing that this device keeps people alive the company shipped another one next day air. Lynox was sad to see the PDM that has been with her from the beginning of her journey with T1D leave. I am again thankful for properly working technology!! Find a cure!!

I had a blast @silverdollarcityattractions White Water. A stranger even cheered for me as I conquered the huge drop slide! Even with all the water, waves, and slides my @dexcom stayed out and my numbers were easy to see. I love it when mom doesn’t have to pull me from the fun to check my BG. I used a swim shirt from @walmart and a SimPatch to keep dex in place. #cgm#t1d#t1dlookslikeme#dexcom#t1dwarrior#explorebranson
I am proud of you for making it through today. ☀️💛🌻🐝 For some of us life doesn’t come easy. For some of us it’s a battle every minute. People don’t see how it hurts us emotionally or physically. They don’t see behind closed doors how we really feel deep inside. Because an illness is invisible it’s rare to receive compassion. People with invisible illnesses are constantly misunderstood based on assumptions. We shouldn’t have to prove our illness to anyone or defend it but we constantly have to do so. 🌼 Here’s to anyone that can relate to this. You’re not alone. #invisibledisease#invisibleillness#type1diabetes#type1diabetic#mentalhealth#chronicillness
NEW BLOG POST UP! 🎈😊 Link in BIO ⬆️
I wrote a little about my experience without Dex for a few days. Also my thoughts about what privilege it is to be able to afford diabetes care here in the US. I reference two of my fave organizations of all time, @beyondtype1 and #InsulinForLifeUSA as the best ways to get involved and helps others in this community. Let me know what you think! Love hearing from you all! 💕 #thediablog
That’s it, I can’t stand it anymore!
Excuse after excuse...this needs to stop and I’m stopping it now!
I have been strong through so many obstacles over the past two years, since beginning this transformation journey, but lately I just can’t get going! I’ve allowed emotions to completely derail me. I’ve literally even gone as far as getting in my workout clothes and then falling asleep on the couch or occupying myself with something else, making up excuses over and over and over again.
And the worst part is-
I feel like shit! I’m tired, moody, sore, sad and just stuck in this weird sort of limbo. This shell of who I was and who I want to be.
The best part is-
I know I can get back! I know I can push myself through a couple of nights of workouts and I will feel like me again. As a result, I will have more energy, I will find the good and happy again, I will feel rejuvenated and motivated.
The parts of life that suck will still be there, but I can keep it from sucking the life out of me! I know how to deal with the suck now-I’ve done it before-this journey has taught me how fight the suck and showed me how truly strong I am.
So tonight I’m taking it back!!! Tonight I’m committing to my health and wellness;, to doing what it is I know helps me deal with stress and helps me to motivate and inspire and to transform these trials for the better. Back to healthy eating 💯 percent, back to daily workouts 💪🏻, back to self care 💕, back to my business of motivating others to do the same ✨
So today I celebrate #takebacktuesday
And I TAKE BACK WELLNESS, WHO’S WITH ME 🙋🏻♀️??
I was feeling pretty lethargic after a long work day and a post-dinner #bgl spike. Nevertheless, this little girl would not let me slip into a lazy couch potato and demanded I take her on a pleasant evening walk with those #preciousmoments eyes. Glad I have her to keep me in check - sometimes she knows what is better for me than I do! 💜 #t1dlookslikeme#pupmom#furbaby
Twice a day the universe asks us to stop and pay attention. Stop what we’re doing and be present. Too often I continue my on with life. Ignoring the call and missing the beauty. However, sometimes the call is so great that I can’t help but sit and be still.
