When I hear that someone around my age is flying for the first time ever (happened last week), it always surprises me. My immediate family moved across the country from my extended family when I was about six years old so we were guaranteed travel adventures if we wanted to see the rest of the family.
Although I didn’t really enjoy sharing the back of the station wagon with my older brother on our shorter vacations, I have always enjoyed traveling.
The week before I was diagnosed with diabetes, I was planning a four hour road trip with some friends to celebrate my birthday in Vegas. Would I have to change my plans to accommodate this uninvited and unwanted addition to my life?
I realized quickly that I could continue my life of travel and adventure. It just might require a bit more planning, but I can still travel around the world to work and explore or drive across my state just to get some amazing chocolate.
I was honored to share my thoughts (and stories) of traveling with diabetes on the Accu-Chek Diabetes Link website today.
