Why I didn’t share my diabetes openly for 15 years (and why I do now)

In partnership with: BY CHRISTEL OERUM (DIABETES STRONG) Everyone’s diabetes journey is different. The way you live your life with diabetes today versus 10 years from now is inevitably going to feel and look very different. Where you currently are in your journey will also affect how much of your life with diabetes you choose to share with other people.
