When I was 17, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It was at that moment when I decided to become a nurse. I've found that my own personal experience having a chronic illness has not only increased my understanding and passion for teaching others with diabetes, it has allowed me an empathy towards my patients that I never thought possible. I teach my patients about their illnesses and let them know, "hey, I have to do this too." It has made my experience as a nurse in an ever-changing world of medicine, so much more rewarding!
