"True happiness is not dependent on being, no external object. It depends only on us."
Dalai Lama

Living with type1 diabetes is being connected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Always, and for our whole Life. Most people around us do not have any idea about the huge amount of time and energy we spend to manage our diabetes. While living our daily life as anybody else, a part of our mind is always connected to stay "between the lines": not too low, not too high. Numbers rythm our Life. How many carbs in my meal ? How many units of insulin should I take ? What is my blood sugar ? Should I adjust my insulin flow ? Should I do a bolus ? Should I check again my blood sugar ?
And, sometimes, even if we keep smiling and stay positive, inside us it is loneliness, isolation, sadness, feeling of not being understood. Emotional support plays a key role in diabetes care. Connecting with other people living with diabetes that understand us can make all the difference.

But, despite how complex diabetes is (we should be awarded a math prize!) it is possible to live,and to live well and achieve all our beautiful projects and dreams.
We learn from our own experiences, but also from our peers. And together, anything is possible! Together, we go forward.

Here are some positives messages from our T1D Challenge teams members.
