Diabetes

I'm 18 years old and a type 1 diabetic...since the age of 9. I now am in college because I need to stay on my parents health insurance. The only thing though is all I think and dream about is being able to ride everyday of the winter. I need help. I can i ride everyday all winter and still get health insurance for the rest of my life. As long as I have enough money to eat, pay rent(or get free housing from a resort), and to snowboard I would be so happy with my life. BUT HOW CAN I DO THIS. I'm not cut out for college...I study study and study and still can't pass most tests. How do I get out of school and still get health insurance while snowboarding. HELP ME SNOWBOARDERS. -much love

Not all jobs offer health insurance. Most resorts don't actually.

So stay on your current course until you find a job with health insurance.

Most jobs won't allow me to snowboard everyday.

I know, that's just life. It sucks, but you'll be worse off if you work for a resort unless you teach or are ski patrol. Which are not easy jobs to get.

Most resorts don't offer health insurance to Snowboard instructors. Do you know any that do? Even if they do you have to be a full-time year round employee to receive it.
