26 years ago today, I can honestly say was one of the worst days for my family and me. October 3, 1988 I was diagnosed as a T1D. Now, as each year passes, it becomes a day of strength and pride. T1D is a terrible disease, but it has made me a strong individual. It has made me the person I am today, and after 26 years, I take pride in making sure it knows that it doesn’t own me!!

On October 25th, Extra Life is doing a 24 hr gaming marathon, and raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, like Sick Kids in Toronto, ON. 100% of the donations goes to these hospitals. My brother, an awesome brother that he is, is using his love for gaming to help support Sick Kids Toronto, a hospital that has saved many children’s lives (mine included).
Support. Share. Donate. It’s a great cause!

I finally have a week off from uni (yaayyy) and some free time, and I’m going to set up the Type 1 Diabetic Tumblr List to attach to my blog, because having other dia-badasses to talk and connect with can make life with type 1 that little bit easier 

So, if all the Type 1 Diabetics of Tumblr could reblog this and spread the word, I’ll set it up this week.
