It is hard for me to smile day to day knowing I have been diabetic since the age of 9 and I am now 24. Long time, seems like yesterday I was just entering the 4th grade having to deal with this new dignose. It runs in my family, my great grand-ma had it my grand-pa got dignosed with it a couple years back and my mom was dignosed at the age of 11, and she will be 45 this year! I guess what I am trying to say is I didnt have a normal child hood growing up with diabetes, i felt outcasted from everything! I cant even tell you what coke taste like all i know is its nasty from the smell of it! I would cry myself to sleep when i was a kid because having a sleep over with friends didnt exsist to me. I guess you could say since I was dignosed at 9 to what I know today a cure will be found and I just hope it isnt too late. I have learned at a young age living with diabetes makes you special because if you take care of yourself your life will be blessed. I just wanted to share my life with some of you and hope no one lets diabetes take your life away. I pray for everyone and anyone.
