A Diabetic’s Story
“I have had my DAD Lennon for almost two years. I have been a type one for 12 years. I am 22 years old. Before SDWR and Lennon I never talked about my disease. I hid from it and I let it define me as a person. I let it completely control me and I didn’t trust anyone in my life with it. Since joining SDWR and meeting Lennon my life has completely changed. Because of Lennon I am no longer afraid of my disease. I no longer hide from diabetes. I have become and advocate. The shy and soft spoken girl that I was is gone. I am no longer afraid to stand up for myself and I no longer allow Type 1 diabetes to control me and what I can and cannot do.
8 months ago I graduated from College with Lennon by my side. Something that I never thought I would ever be able to do, but I did. The last two years have been challenging but more rewarding than anything I have ever done in my life.
These past 8 months alone have been some of the most difficult times I have ever experienced, but I wouldn’t change those experiences for anything, and Lennon has been by my side fighting with me everyday. SDWR not only brought me a cute (and I mean absolutely adorable) little pup that has the amazing ability to save my life, but they gave me confidence and a family. I have this amazing support system that I couldn’t imagine my life without.
My point is that this journey you are on is well worth every smile and every tear that it will bring you. If I have learned anything over the last two years, it is that you can do anything you set your mind to and SDWR, this family, will be an even bigger blessing than you can ever imagine. Lennon not only saves my life every single day, she makes me a better person every day.”
