My name is Isaac, I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2010.

I was commuting with an airline I used to work for. I was prideful in providing for my family, working an insane amount of hours thinking I had all together. Lack of sleep, airport food, knowing I was invincible.

Never did I see myself harming my body the way I did.

What a revelation it was to see the damage that I have done to myself. Growing up I was athletic, I was doing sports, weights, confident in anything I was doing.

2016, I cut my big toenail too short. It turned into a bone infection. In a span of 3 days, it went from bad to worse. My toe had to be amputated.

It was hard to deal with this like Superman had failed his family. It was just my Toe, throughout the healing process I met many who lost more than I.

I am grateful for all that I have. I am very thankful to all the people whom I have met who have educated me and have helped me deal with my Diabetes. I am diabetic, it has been hard to admit.
