Sliding into them DMs
An insightful anecdote into the life of a Diabetic Millenial
About the Book
Finding out you suddenly have insulin dependant diabetes at the ripe young age of 27 may not sound all that exciting to most people. While everyone else in their mid 20s were out there realising their dreams, I found myself waking up to a nightmare. Not many fit, young people find themselves with an ailment to which there is no cure. You usually just, get better after a while. Despite this, life had to go on. This is the very true story of my journey. Blessed with previous life choices to be trained in healthcare as a Registered Nurse, I have spent the last few years fine tuning my Diabetes control. I work closely with the medical team in charge of me over at the Diabetes Management clinic in Tan Tock Seng Hospital to achieve my goals at this end. (Even returning as a full time Nurse during the pandemic.) Now, with all the knowledge and experience I had been graciously given the opportunity to acquire, I would like to pass it forward. As both a Nurse and as a Patient, these are my life experiences and learned knowledge. How I adapted to change, overcame this adversity, and ultimately converted that negative energy into something positive. May it provide comfort to those who are suffering in silence, and joy to those who wish to walk hand in hand with me down this relatively short but important chapter of my life.
