The Holiday Season’s Must-Read: Diabetes Diagnosis Stories


Every person with diabetes has a unique diagnosis story. Whether or not their diagnosis story is one they share with the world-at-large, it’s a defining one, a life-changing event.  What not everyone knows, though, is that it doesn’t have to be a negative one. That’s the message we at ASweetLife want to share with the world, to everyone living with diabetes, and to all of the newly diagnosed.  With this  in mind we’ve created two collections of inspirational diabetes diagnosis stories.  We really hope you’ll download them – each story is remarkable, straight from the heart, and inspiring.
