    When I was first diagnosed, I was forced to tell all of my teachers and classmates that I had Type 1 Diabetes and I was scared they would think something was wrong with me. A couple of years later, I'm sending an email to my entire school about a JDRF One Walk that would be happening in my area and asking for donations! I never thought I would be this comfortable with myself, but clearly that changed!

    Well @jasmine1616 it's almost 5 a.m here in England and even though it's so early in the day I think you definitely deserve today's top banana award.
    Well done, best of luck with the walk and have a nice day.

    Well done @jasmine1616 that's an amazing turn around - I'm also planning on doing the walk in September for JDRF so will be thinking of you when I do mine :)
