I was diagnosed on my 2nd birthday 6 years ago. I was in DKA and very sick. I now have had my pump almost 4 years and love it. I play soccer, hurling, and GAA football. I never let Type 1 diabetes stop me. I also have been diagnosed with Celiac D since I was 5. I am my mums hero.
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
Will I grow out of it?
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
I am a very independent brave 8 year old.
