I chose this episode of True Life because I feel that a lot of people suffer from diabetes. This episode followed the stories of three young adults, Kristyn who is 25 years old, and Matt and Jen who are both 19 years old. Kristyn suffers from Type I diabetes. She has been living on her own for three years and is maintaining two job just so she can keep up to pay her medical bills. Although she has medical insurance, it doesn’t cover all of her medical expenses, which put her in $12,000 in debt. This forced her to move back to her parent’s house so she pays off her debt. Matt also has Type I diabetes. He started off a good patient, always took his insulin and watched what he ate. However, once he entered college he wanted to have fun and party. He wanted the full college experience with parties and alcohol. He didn’t want his diabetes to hold him back from having fun in college. He stopped taking care of himself as much and drank excessively. He eventually had a few seizures because of his drinking. But that didn’t stop him from continuing his party life. Jen, on the other hand, has Type II diabetes and was also pregnant. She was forced to eat well to keep her glucose levels low for her baby’s health and herself as well. Because of her bad habit of eating fast foods, she ends up needing insulin injections. The doctors advised her to stop eating fast foods because her baby would be too big to deliver and there would be a lot of risk factors for her baby. Jen had to deliver the baby two weeks early and the baby was put in ICU because they had to dislocate the baby’s shoulder to deliver it. Jen goes back to her old dietary habit and is re-diagnosed with Type I diabetes. This is a quest narrative. They all live normal lives aside from their diabetes. However, they each have a goal to attain. Kristyn wants to pay off her debt because of her illness and live on her own again. Matt wanted to live his normal college life and vowed to stop drinking after college. Jen wanted to deliver a healthy baby aside from her diabetes.
