Mila Clarke Buckley

Patient Leader

One day, I wasn’t feeling too well. That day turned into weeks, and then into months. I finally took myself to the doctor to get a good answer. I neglected myself for a long time – something I should never have done. In just a moment, it felt like the world stopped. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I searched for resources online, but I discovered that there weren’t many people my age writing about how they deal with having type 2 diabetes, so I decided to share my experience and my progress and help others deal with a life-changing diagnosis and change a long-existing stigma about this chronic illness.
