My story with diabetes began when I was 5 years old. I asked myself how many people
say to our Lord, “why did it happen to me?”

I started with many highs and lows, relapses came and some ailments, the needles were painful, and my diet was no longer the same, without a doubt.

Living with diabetes was very strict, it prohibited me from doing many things. Until a few years ago, I thought that I would not be able to live for much longer.

19 years have passed, thanks to God I am still alive and without any kind of problem that has to do with this journey.

Diabetes does not have to be an excuse to not achieve your dreams if you have a balanced, healthy diet and do your checks every morning.

Now I have a great profession, I am a dentist… Thanks to GOD, my friends and my girlfriend were very supportive and also my great family that I have by my side.
Life is a challenge…!!!

And it is for the great warriors we always have to raise our heads not to flee, but to continue growing.
