Team Abby!!!!!!!

Welcome to my walk page!†

Please help my team raise money for the fight against DIABETES. You can help by joining my team or by donating money.†

Diabetes = When your pancreas basically gives up and dies on you. The pancreas makes a hormone called insulin that stabilizes blood sugars. Without insulin, my blood sugar goes high and that can lead to complications and DKA. There is no cure right now but I hope that I will be able to see one in my life time. :)

The Cure is very important to me. Diabetes Stinks. Being diabetic means dealing with constant needles and counting and calculating everything I eat. I have to wear an insulin pump 24/7 that is constantly giving me insulin. Although the pump is very helpful in managing my diabetes it is no where near a cure.†

Everyday I have to check my blood sugar several times a day. When my blood sugar goes high I feel awful and thirsty. Typically when I am high I can?t concentrate on school work. When my blood sugar goes low I get shakey and confused. Being low is the worst feeling ever.†

I really hope that you would consider donating to my team or joining Team Abby at the walk in DePere on May 11th 2013 :)
