Growing Up With Diabetes
It started for me before I had kids. My youngest sister, Marah, was diagnosed with Diabetes when she was 5, which was in 1988. So that’s where Diabetes started with our family. Back then, it was a lot different than the way we do things now. The diet was much more restrictive. You had to eat at particular times and all that kind of stuff. My mom handled the majority of that. Because I was a young teenager, I learned how to help her manage it and knew how to give shots and all that kind of stuff.
