Hello everyone, my name is Audrey. Im currently 27 and have been living with type 1 diabetes for 25 years. I was diagnosed at the age of 2 and back then I had no idea what was going on, my parents cried and cried because because at that time my parents saw it as a death sentence. Since then though my parents have done everything they can do to make sure i can live life to the fullest, then adulthood hit. Since turning 18 i have constantly stuggled trying to get insurance, whenever i would get a plan i would be booted off after a few months because they kept upping the prices i had to pay until i was compleatly unable to afford it which as you can imagon it made being able to affored insulin alone. Now seeing as ive had this for so long theres been complications along the way, in the past year ive been having complications with Diabetic Retinopathy and for the past few years ive been going through insulin rejection where my body doesnt like to agree with the long acting insulin in on. Since moving across country to where i can get insurance its been helping tremendously, but heres the downside, the insurance does not cover insulin pumps. With all the issues ive had since turning 18 and stuggling with insurance its just another obstacle. Im asking for help because i want to live as long as i can with this. I want to be as healthy as i can be and build towards a future where i can help others. Anything will help and would be greaty appriciated. I wont be able to repay anyone but know i will be forever greatful for your help.
