Meet Jessica Clark

 

Jessica was diagnosed in 1991 at the age of 5, now 32.  Jessica shares “my mother noticed I was always thirsty and complained of headaches. My diabetes is well managed despite losing insurance, however, it has not always been well managed.  In her late teens and early 20's her diabetes was poorly damaged resulting in permanent damage.  Diabetes has physically, mentally, and emotionally affected her. She has significant visual impairment in her right eye, essentially blind, due to the complications of diabetes.  She has over $2,000 in medical debt, which is limiting her getting supplies. Mentally and emotionally she often wonders how different her life would be without diabetes.

 

Best Practices

 

Jennifer is a firm believer in finding your "diabetic identity." Finding out where and how you fit into this world and life with this disease is very important. Knowing that there are plenty of people out there that are willing to help, listen, anything you need is a great reminder AND if you haven’t found that person yet; Hi, my name is Jessica, and I'd love to help!

I was diagnosed at the age of 12 years old, now 18.

My passion is a driving force in my life and I will never allow a challenge to get in the way of achieving my dreams.  When I was diagnosed I knew  this challenge would be a part of my life.

I have had type 1 since age 7; diagnosed and treated at CCHMC. Today, I have an insulin pump to better control and 2 awesome  kids. It can definitely be helpful for people to see that with a little work,  life can be fairly normal for type 1's.
