Diabetes being a 24/7 disease, you would think that a diabetic wouldn't have time for anything else or that they would be scared to take on their aspirations or any type of adventure - but this is far from right.  Despite diabetics all around the world who see carb numbers all over food items, see finger poking as a dinner ritual and can give themselves insulin without even making eye contact with their pump - diabetics have a lot of to offer and are in no way scared to take on the world.

For me, I am constantly thinking of things to do.  I don't just pursue one thing, I pursue many.  Sometimes my mom says that I take on too much, but if at any time I have absolutely nothing to do, I am absolutely bored.  This could explain why I always have something on the go or at least am always thinking of something to do.

More recently I started a photography business.  At first I had no idea how it was going to go, but it has been amazing. Photography has always been a passion of mine. I always used to line up my beanie babies organize them (using a wash cloth as a backdrop) and then take photos of them with my mom's film camera.   Of course they were horrible, but I would like to say that I have improved!

Despite being diabetic, I can manage many different things - not everything is about diabetes.  Diabetics can dream big and achieve whatever they set their minds too let me be living proof, and if you need more check out the connected in motion website! {} There's your proof!
