Brandon will be 27 in December and has been T1D since he was 8 years old. He was actually diagnosed AT CAMP UTADA during Siblings Week!!!!! He had a very long "honeymoon" stage, and so while his diagnosis wasn't has traumatic as my sister's, he had a really rough time understanding it all. For a while thought he had "caught" diabetes from camp. He has disabilities and his maturity level is about 16 years old. He wears a pump, loves hunting and the outdoors, and spoils his wife (who also has severe mental disabilities)!
"I have learned to watch what you eat, to exercise, to work, and to have fun while taking care of myself. I can balance diabetes!"
