My name is Georgie, I'm 25 and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 1 year old. So basically I've had it my whole life.
I consider that a blessing in disguise as I only know life with diabetes which makes it easier to manage.
The day to day with diabetes involves finger pricking for blood sugar testing, having needles or using an insulin pump to control your blood sugar levels.
It has it highs and lows (literally).
JDRF is doing great work in research to help find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, something I'm sure will happen in my lifetime...
So help make it happen by throwing a bit of spare change JDRF's way.
I'll make sure to run as fast as I possibly can!
Thanks everyone, really appreciate your support.
