Midcoast Color Me Cured

My name is Sarah and I was diagnosed with juvenile (Type 1) diabetes at just 8 years old. I had never even heard the word diabetes, let alone understand how this would affect me for my entire life. Although my parents and other family members could not have been more supportive, I felt as though I couldn’t be a true child anymore. I couldn’t go to a birthday party and eat cake with the other kids, enjoy my Halloween candy, or cool off with an ice cream on a hot summer day. Everyone did their best to keep my life as “normal” as possible, but I still felt different from everyone else.
