My life with diabetes

Type 1 diabetes in childhood:
Its evolution and management in the family and at school.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 6.
It was very hard for my family because they could not believe it.
I fear having diabetes because in my past I was sick, but my future changed my life. I wish for a cure.
But thank God my parents and my family support me and love me, and I am happy with my life. Thank God I am now 13 years old.
And I thank God above all and the Creciendo con Diabetes Association (Growing up with Diabetes) and Dona Janina for their help. Thank you. God bless you.
