My name is Adam Kennedy and I am a Type 1 diabetic. I was first diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 7. I’ve experienced lots of hardship as well as good times.
Being a type 1 diabetic can be extremely challenging, I’ve been managing and maintaining my blood sugar levels for so long now that it’s part of my day to day routine.
Growing up I was too embarrassed in school to be diabetic, I always figured other kids would find it weird or disturbing if I’d prick my finger to test my blood sugar or have to take a shot of insulin. Being different in school is not usually a good thing.
On this blog I will write more about my experiences and ways I was able to overcome most obstacles that would arise in my day to day.
