My end of the year Animation for my digital class!
I guess I sort of forget I have diabetes sometimes...
So I figured this was a good way to tell people and also answer alot of the questions they ask me about my disease I struggle to answer :)

You really present your family in the brightest light! Starts off an entertainingly educational animation, and ends a really personal one. Nicely presented, and animated, and for the diabetes thing: how early on did you get it? Hope I didn't miss it - I don't think I heard a year in the video. I guess you need to alter your diet a lot too - avoid all sugary foods? I like how it's all in a positive tone btw, despite the negative context. Keep fighting the good fight!!

I got 'type 1 diabetes' when i was '4 years old'

'The stay away from sugary foods' thing is actually a pretty common misconception, and im glad to clear it up for you...
Sugary foods just need larger doses of insulin earlier. Sugar is fast acting and spikes blood sugars quickly. For example: A Juice box (super sugary) would react alot faster than lets say a tuna sandwich ( less sugary )

If you have any more questions, send em my way!
thanks for the feedback btw appreciate it :)

Wow! Really motivational story. And excellent animation to add! The only thing I would suggest is working on recording audio (that background noise tho). Besides that, great job! :)

Never seen anything like this before. It feels nice to know that I don't have to go through this alone. Been type 1 for 4 years now.

No you definitely don't have to go this alone! dm me if you ever need someone to talk to :)

This is the most emotionally heartfelt piece I believe I have ever watched here on NG. Sure, there have been lots of really good animations, but none so realistic that hit close to home. I've lost several people to diabetes, so this speaks to me about how scary, challenging, and complicated it is.

Thanks for doing this.

First of all, I give you extra points for having not just Undertale music, but having the Secret of Mana music too (I'd recognize my childhood game anywhere lol). But yeah, not only was this informative, but this was very inspirational. I'm sorry for what you have to go through. At the same time, I really admire your bravery and trying to stay strong no matter what. It's all about staying determined! (no undertale pun intended lol) :)


GrahamDrawsButts responds:

DETERMINATION!

Thank you ShaeGuy! lovely comment!
Glad to hear you had your priorities in the right place playing secret of mana as a child too :)
