So I'm usually complaining about how hard my life is as a person with T1- the annoyance of dealing with my health insurance compay, endless doctor appointemnts, couting carbs, the threat of complications, etc, etc.
I just had a major reality check. This video that I saw really humbled me and thought I'd share!
The video is put out by the International Diabetes Federation/World Health Organization on type 1 diabetes in the developing world. It's really unbelievable: Type 1 is basically a death sentence for people in the developing world- it kills more people there than HIV/AIDS!
Here is their website if you are interested: http://www.lifeforachild.org/
You can see the video on their website too:
