Humans of Malden 3/8


“When I was eight, I was diagnosed with diabetes. One day, I was just watching TV and I went to the bathroom about twelve times in something like fifteen minutes. [My family and I] were suspicious about what was happening, so we went to the clinic. They checked my blood sugar and they told me that I had diabetes. It was very hard on both me and my family. When I tell people this, they ask me if I had the chance, would I ever go back and change to stop this from happening. And I tell them no, because it made me who I am today. It taught me to stay grounded and become more humble. That experience is very important and means a lot to me, because without my diagnosis, I don’t know who I would be.” #humansofmaldenhigh
