Covering all of the unexpected costs is a financial burden. I am fortunate to have basic health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. However I still need to meet my deductible, and there are costs associated with physician visits, lab tests, and supplies, including insulin and a blood-glucose monitor. In addition, the monitor requires an iPhone 7 or newer in order to sync the app with the monitor, so I will need to upgrade my phone. I have also had to miss over a week of work, putting me even farther behind. There will be costs associated with managing this for the rest of my life.
On the brighter side, I quit smoking. I am eating healthier than ever and practicing regular exercise and yoga. Type 1 is a 'self-awareness disease' and I am more aware of my body than ever before.
You never know what life is going to throw at you. I am grateful for all of my friends and family. Any support will be greatly appreciated and go directly towards keeping me alive and well.
