Wins & Fails

Jessie's Win: She's been using her calendar and writing down when her HW is due.

Colleen's Bonus Win:  You know what, I’m claiming a win for this week because when this episode airs, I’ll be just two days past my 26th diaversary. I’ve never really been big on celebrating it, it’s just another day, but if I take a moment to really think about it, living 26 years with T1D is kind of awesome. I’m proof that it’s not a death sentence. We’ve interviewed so many people who are proof that anyone can thrive with diabetes. So, here’s to the rest of my life with T1D.
