BEYOND TYPE ONE
So excited to be featured on @beyondtypeone!
Meet @doctordiabeatit "I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes during my last year of medical school. I see my diagnosis as a blessing, as my diabetes serves as a reminder every single day to take ownership of my health and listen intuitively to my body. Type 1 Diabetes is not about getting dealt a ”losing” deck of cards but learning how to play that deck to the best of our ability. Ultimately, being a Type 1 Diabetic has given me that much more motivation to lead a balanced life. It’s frightening to think that I had learned of all the “red flag” signs of diabetes in medical school, yet when it came to myself I brushed each and every symptom off, attributing everything to “Nah it’s only stress.” (Let’s just say my differential diagnosis was a bit off...) I hope that my experiences as a TID, and the lessons learned through trial and (many) errors, extend beyond my own story, and allow me to help others facing this disease as a future physician. My name is Heather and this is how I live beyond!"
