On December 15, 2012 I found out I was diagnosed with diabetes. At first I was laughing because I thought it was a joke but after looking back at the doctor I realized it wasn't a joke. This was hard for me because i was only 14 years old when all of this was happening. I felt different from everyone else because I couldn't eat anything I wanted to eat. It wasn't fair but i got over it.Sometimes I wondered how did I even get diabetes and I was so healthy (at least that's what I thought). For most people who don't know much about diabetes they think that having diabetes means you get lots of attention but you don't. It only means you have to use a meter to check your blood sugar, inject insulin and take pills like a old person. I was in the hospital for a week and when I got back to school I was to embarrassed to tell my friends or anyone else because I thought I would be picked on. The only friend that knows at school is my best friend Summer Winters. She cares so much just like my cousin Jenaye. When they see me with sweets they would take it away. I'm just glad to know that someone actually cares about me.
