«It is not certain that everything we think must necessarily be against the trend or worse: wrong. On the other hand, in life I have learned that it is more educational to deal with dynamics that we have always labeled as fears, rather than never trying to challenge them.
Shedding light on doubts is better than remaining in uncertainty, strengthening your person also means facing challenges, and then reaping real benefits.
Experiences are part of our life. Beautiful or ugly, however they build our being. The positive ones are lost over time, they are perhaps taken for granted, the negative ones instead weigh more, are metabolized over time, but they are the most constructive ones, because they teach us not to make the same mistakes and teach us to be an example for those who stands next to it.
Leaving the comfort zone, breaking the mold, not setting limits makes us strong. Fear sometimes forces us to remain immobile in (too much) security, it doesn’t make us act or even try. If you are afraid of losing in the end you do not play well.
I wanted to make this premise before telling you my story, a story full of challenges. But let’s take a few steps back to introduce myself: my name is Marvin and I’m 29 years old. The place in my heart is where I was born: Sospirolo, a small town in the Belluno Dolomites. It is precisely here that I spend my life peacefully, a community where the inhabitants are still very close and where the tranquility that the still uncontaminated mountain landscape transmits is carried within the soul.
The first half of my growth was lively and carefree. From the age of 12, however, my life has changed radically. I found that I have the type 1 diabetes mellitusa “companion of adventures” from whom at times I would like to part, but which I still hold arm in arm, bringing him to my side.
Adolescence with diabetes is not easy, given the desire for carefree age and numerous temptations always lurking. However, diabetes has changed me as a person: it has accustomed me to take dozens and dozens of important decisions every day, because my health and my life are at stake. Every stance must be considered and this assumption has made me responsible in many things and meticulous in many respects, a bit like what happens in pastry shops (you will understand why this reference is made below).
The disease has empowered me, anticipating the transition from adolescence to adulthood. From difficult situations, however, one must know how to draw the positive sides and challenges, I feel I have won many.
Life with diabetes is by no means simple. There are things that cannot be ignored, others that you cannot take for granted. Sometimes, the days are busy and certainly not without more worries than we all already have. This, however, does not mean feeling defeated or with something less … I wanted to investigate what this disease was, what were the contributing causes of the rise in glycemic values and now I know that nutrition is of fundamental importance, which must be varied and balanced, preferring rustic and unrefined foods. Asking, studying and experimenting is what made me grow culturally.
