Brittany's story:  “It was October 2008 when I started noticing that there something wrong with my body.  I was becoming more and more tired during the day and found it difficult to sleep at night due to frequent trips to the bathroom.  Following my instincts and online research, I had already begun to suspect that I was diabetic.  This was confirmed days later when I had my blood tested by an endocrinologist that I had been seeing for a thyroid disorder.  I had no idea at the time what it meant to be Type 1 Diabetic, and for the first few years, I was between physicians, never fully understanding my disease or what I needed to do to feel better.  Finally, I went to the Joslin Clinic.  From my first appointment, I knew that I was at the right place.  I began new insulin regimens, and learned about diet options.  I was offered nutrition classes, along with testing and injecting equipment that made it easier for me to take my medication.  I feel fortunate and am grateful to be a patient at the Joslin Clinic.  The people there have helped me to be healthy, even as a type 1 Diabetic.”
