My "You Can Do This" Project Video


I posted late due to technical issues and work, but I'm really excited about this project! And if you happen to be a Packers fan, please realize I was using your fanaticism as a positive example! Same goes for all you Speed Metal enthusiasts!

Diabetes makes us feel all sorts of things, including but not limited to; frustrated, crappy, annoyed, angry, overwhelmed sad, alone, hopeless & different. But here's the thing, YOU CAN DO live this diabetes life, and YOU are NOT alone!

When Kim Vlasnik from TextingMyPancreas, came up with the concept for the "You Are Can Do This" Project, I was impressed beyond belief.

The following is my video submission for the project & I really hope you get something out of it.
It's a one shot (because I've attempted to tackle editing yet) and it's far from being perfect.
It's not terribly pretty, but I'm speaking from my heart and I stand by what I say - And Kim's fabulous words & concept!

We (YOU) can do this & WE are NOT ALONE!!

AND WE ROCK!

I came for the "you can do this" and I stayed for the speed metal and porn titles. AWESOME video, thank you! :)

"Embrace your own normal"... God love you, Kel. So true. Yet, we lived and try to be normal with a vengeance. Only to come to eventually realize that we are normal by doing what we do, and just living means we ARE doing it. Thanks for sharing your perspective on this, my friend.

You are so funny! Thank you so so so so x10 much! Im struggling, being only 15 years old and dealing with type 1, but you certainly helped me in your video! Everything you said was true! I wish I had someone to talk to in my family, but I am the only diabetic in it, do you know of any teen support groups I could look into? God bless you!
