Hello I’m Clark! I have had type 1 diabetes since April 2013, although it still feels like yesterday. It has been a real learning curve since being diagnosed and there is a lot of information to take in. I was supported by my family and friends when I was diagnosed but I know I would have really appreciated some help from people who knew what I was going through and that’s why I think sugar buddies is a great idea.
I will say that having diabetes isn’t all bad, since diagnosis I have had a better diet, done more exercise and made sure I look after myself more. My biggest interest/concern is making sure people have good mental health that allows them to treat their diabetes effectively.
Diabetes: Type 1
Age Group: twenties
Year of Diagnosis: 2013
