“I encourage you to find a reason to take control. What is it in life that you want to do? Do you want to be a good parent, a good grandparent one day, do you want to run your first 5k, or ride your first 100 mile ride. Whatever is out there in life that you want to achieve. And realize that taking good control of your diabetes is going to enable that to happen.”
