Rayan Mokdad

In summer 2009, I was 11 years. I was excited to become a teenager. But the excess of sugar in my blood made my life bitter.

I felt dizzy, lost weight, become pale and used to go to the toilet frequently.
The doctor informed me that I'm affected by Type I Diabetes and going to live with it all my life.

I could not understand what does this disease means. First, I felt I can't continue my life normally, but later when I learned how to deal with Diabetes at the Chronic Care Center, I felt secure. I still go to school, I learn and work hard and today I feel stronger than before.

I never felt shy or inferior, I never tried to hide or deny because I believe in God.

I practice sports mainly Basket Ball in the Taadod Club and my trainer is also diabetic and followed at the Chronic Care Center.

Diabetes could not stop me living. I always try to maintain healthy lifestyle. Sometimes I ask why me?? But seeing a lot of diabetics of my age decreased my complaints.

Thanks to all my family and my friends and the Chronic Care Center, I am able to continue my life successfully.

Ali Salameh

Hey it's Ali, I'm diabetic since 18 years. I frequently visit the Chronic Care Center since 1994 and still receiving my treatment and follow the recommendations of its team. Without this team I might have lost the road a long time ago. As an insulin-dependent patient I use multiple injections three times per day.

My family was and still supportive. Now I'm an engineer's student because of their support. I count on my mom as an angel sent from above for being patient and protective. Thanks also to my friends for being extremely understanding. I might be mistaken if I lose hope for an instant, that's why I'm living my life in all dimensions. It's the key for our happiness.
