Tell us 3 things that are true about you, your condition, your Health Activism, or your life. Now tell us 1 lie. Do you think we will be able to tell the difference?I’m the first to admit I’m a terrible liar. And on top of that, there isn’t much I haven’t shared on this blog already. So figuring out a lie that might be believable was tough, but I gave it a shot (no diabetes-pun intended).
- For most of my life, I didn’t want anyone to know I had diabetes and went to great lengths to hide it.
- I can remember lying awake as a teenager thinking that I'd never be alive to see my 30th birthday.
- In my almost 32 years with diabetes, I've been lucky enough to never have had a seizure from a low blood sugar.
- During my entire four years at college I never once tested my blood sugar.
