Hey everyone i'm Jared, and i am 19 years old. And was Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in June of last year. I've been growing a beard for around 6? months and currently have 1 tattoo and many more to come.
Unfortunately i don't use a pump and will probably never use one. Endo said i was doing fine and was told to keep doing what i was doing and no pump in the seeable future. My recent AC1 was 5. And am currently in great health.
I've been writing blogs lately about my life up to this point, my thoughts and my views on life.

This whole ride was a roller coaster, but i've survived. And I have to admit i love being Diabetic. (don't get me wrong sometimes i think man it would be fun to not be, but hey it's a life style and it's something i've needed in my life.)
My goal in life is to become a motivational speaker. To some-what help those who are down. Because it was terrible to be down like i was and i think no one should ever have to be at that low in their life. And i thought this could be a way to get some helpful information and maybe a launching point for people to kinda hear me out. (in my blogs)
Anyways thanks for reading.
