My family is all military background. My mom, my dad, my brother, grandparents..everyone. I had always dreamed of serving in the United States Navy and serving my country like my family did. Hearing the stories about the flight deck and becoming a shellback, I wanted it more than anything, to serve my country, man that was the dream. But now that I have Type 1, I've been denied by all branches not just the military. Im a liability now. I understand why I can't join. But it doesn't change the fact that I feel like I just got the rug pulled out from under me. I can't do what I've always wanted to do, what I've taken so much pride in. I just feel like I'm liability now. Has anyone else had this problem? Being denied something just because they have diabetes?
