Today it’s been 16 years associated with me and it’s the 16th anniversary of my diagnosis. I was 13 and playing with my brothers and I knew something was not right in my stomach. So I went to my parents and told them that I needed to see a doctor.”

I Thought I Was Doomed – Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas further wrote – “Today resonates with me personally because it’s the 16th anniversary of my diagnosis. I was thirteen, playing shows with my brothers.. And I knew in my gut that something wasn’t right, so I went to my parents and told them I needed to see the doctor.  After going over my symptoms, my pediatrician informed me that I had Type 1 diabetes. All the symptoms were in line with an undiagnosed Type 1. I was devastated – frightened… Did this mean my dream of touring the world and playing our music had to end? But I was committed, just like I always have been, to not letting it slow me down. There are tough days but I have an incredible support system I can rely on to help me push through and not be hard on myself when I’m feeling low.”
