I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was three years old in 2003. I don’t remember much about it because I was too young to understand at the time.
It is hard but I’ve been handling it. I even planned a diabetes awareness day at school. If people weren’t so harsh about it and judgemental, and other people had a better understanding things would be easier.
I want to help people to understand what it’s like and know what it’s about, and that they can talk to me if needed.
