Five tips for school kids to cope with diabetes and take part in sports activities? Your message for them.
Keep moving and don’t be ashamed of your diabetes. Having to sit out for a low snack, or having a medical device attached to you doesn’t mean your different, but a stronger person. Be proud of who you are and you can do anything you set your mind to!
Throw some light on the organization you are working with to help those with diabetes? Share an experience at a Diabetes hockey camp?
I really enjoy working with diabetes organizations for several reasons. I like working with Diabetes Canada for their child diabetes camps, JDRF and DRIFCanfor their research efforts, Connected in Motion for their amazing adventures and slipstreams, DSkate for their diabetes hockey camps, Friends for Life for their children events, and Beyond Type 1 for their information. These are just a few organizations, there’s a lot of other great one’s out there really helping the community!
The games in Japan — rescheduled for March 4, 5, and 7 — were canceled on Feb. 24. This came as a relief for you especially as you understood the personal health risks. How have you gone about taking care of yourself during this pandemic?
I was quite sad- I really wanted to finish the year by competing with some of the best athletes across the globe and was excited to explore Japan. However, I was questioning whether or not I should go as I am person with several autoimmune disorders (type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, and psoriasis) I was hesitant. Luckily, our league put our health first and cancelled the trip.
Taking care of oneself during the pandemic is challenging, especially how it’s getting colder that restricts outdoor activities. I think one way keeping sane is staying active in any way possible, making routines, and practicing self-reflection.
