It was basically a summertime camp with a lot of high school kids, and, basically, it ended up that we had to quickly find a way out, but it was good to just go and see the school, what it's all about, although I didn't get to see it all.
It's really about being someone that people with diabetes can look to and say it will be fine living their everyday life and following their dreams with diabetes—that's the main thing.
It's just about, with my parents and my family, knowing they're there when I need them, but also that they trust me enough to take care of it myself, which is important for me. I think living that way is better than living in a way that's hazardous, where you're not thinking things through.
I would say it's been a natural transition—it wasn't like it was premeditated—it just kind of has happened, in a way. Diabetes is not something I asked for, but it is something I do have to deal with. It's actually helped me as person to grow and really blessed me in a lot of ways. Also, I was never any good at math till I got diabetes, and now I have to be really good at math, so it's helped me there, too. It just depends on the specific day, or week, or year.

I have been independent for a while—I just am that way—but when it comes to my diabetes, in the past four to five months, I've been taking even more responsibility.
