Hi. I'm Mykayla. I live in Wisconsin and have had diabetes for over 4 years now. I was diagnosed in 2010 in 6th grade. When i was diagnosed, my body was rejecting the insulin so my blood sugars were in the 900s for almost a week. When my blood sugars finally started coming down, i blacked out for 15 minutes and the doctors said my heart stopped pumping and i almost passed away. After that happened, the doctors told my parents that im not doing any better and that i have a week to live :( but after being in the hospital for about 2 months, i was released and now today, im a healthy normal 15 year old girl. I dont let people tell me what i can and can't do. I know my limits. Diabetes doesn't stop me from hunting, playing sports, running and being an almost 16 year old! What is your story?
