A Day in the Life

Hey everyone! A couple of weeks ago two of my best friends decided that they wanted to see what it was like to have type 1 so they shadow me for a weekend. We put CGMs and insulin pumps on them (with nothing in the pumps of course) and they carried around a bag with low supplies as well. It meant so much to me to have people trying to understand what I go through on a daily basis. At one point while I was riding my blood sugar went low and I made them drink a juice box right along with me. Although it’s not completely the same because they couldn’t feel how horrible being low feels, I think they were still pretty overwhelmed with everything I have to do just to stay alive!
