Hi! My name is Khadija Alarayedh, and I am a 22 year old medical student. This past January I have celebrated my 9th year living with diabetes! It may seem like a short time for those who have already reached 15-25 years, but to me, it seems like a lifetime! How easy or how hard my life is with diabetes depends on no-one but myself, so I try my best to keep things flowing smoothly (well, at least most of the time).
