Laura Bean from Beansbetes joins us to talk about her experience with T1D.
I've been following Laura for a while on IG and she has such a larger than life personality.
She embodies strength and resilience with T1D, and it's clear that humor plays a big part in her life with it.
"You are a whole person outside of diabetes." ~ Laura Bean

Wins & Fails

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.
