She embodies strength and resilience with T1D, and it’s clear that humor plays a big part in her life with it.

Tip of the Week

Sometimes saying no can make a world of difference when it comes to your mental and physical health. If you feel overwhelmed or stressed and don’t want to do it sometimes, that’s okay. So saying no for a night in or to study can be a big benefit.

Question for You!

What part of Laura’s story and interview resonated with you the most? 

I had so much empathy for her wishing she could have had a different pediatric endo sooner. I want to remind everyone that you are allowed to fire your doctors if they are not good fits for you.
