There's a best part to diabetes? 🤔

A little while ago, I met up with my friend Haley to chat about life with diabetes over margaritas. Haley, like me, has had diabetes since she was a kid, so we both know what a pain it can be. I told Haley she could ask me any question she wanted. But when she asked me about "the best part" about having diabetes, I couldn't help but laugh! I mean, seriously? A best part to diabetes? Isn't it all just... bad?

Real Talk: Life with diabetes

Believe it or not, there are best parts to living with diabetes. Like when you go to the grocery store, overhear someone looking for a low-carb pasta alternative, and strike up a conversation (new diabestie?). 🤝 Or when you reach your A1C goal, and feel like the most ultimate champion of your own life. 🎖 Or that moment you realize, for the very first time, you've had diabetes longer than not having it, and can't help but think how far you've come. 🤩 Those are just a few of the best moments of life with diabetes. Want to know my best part of having diabetes? Check out the video below! 🍹
