UPDATE AS OF AUGUST 6, 2015:
I have been selected to go to Brazil through Rotary Youth Exchange. I will be using this blog primarily to give my family, friends, and anyone else who wishes to read my blog a way to keep themselves updated on my adventures in Brazil. Thanks, and I hope you continue to read up on my life!
I figured I would update. As I have now grown, so it would be weird to say that I am an eighth grader when in fact I am not.
My name is Claire. I was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes on March 6, 2007. Diabetes doesn’t define my life, but it is a definitely a huge part of it. I would like to be able to say that I have had perfect management and control over this disease, except that would be a lie.
I try to keep a positive outlook about the way diabetes affects my life, and I’ve decided to share it with the world. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. I guess that’s what I have been working to portray. I don’t want to join the group of people complaining about diabetes, so I try to show the small victories that come along with the disease. And then I blog about them. I hope that comes across in my posts.
I hope you take the chance to get to know me though my articles, and happy reading!
