After a series of misdiagnoses lasting over a year, I was finally diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in the spring of 2003 at the ago of 22. I managed my Diabetes with multiple daily injections (MDI) for about a year, and started wearing an insulin pump in January of 2004. Other than a maternal grandmother with Type 2 Diabetes, I am the only known diabetic in my family. I am also a conservative Christian, and navigating what it means to be a person of faith and someone living with a chronic condition is a challenge I continue to explore.
