I was diagnosed 7/26/15. I am going into 2nd grade and I can’t wait for school to start. I love to draw, dance, sing, read, and I want to be a scientist. I love to go to Crossfit and workout like my mom. I used to go to roller derby practice with my mom and be on team Tough Love. I was scared that other kids would make fun of me for having to take shots to eat food. I know that everyone loves me and they didn’t care about the shots.
What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
Do you really have diabetes? Will it go away? Yes, I do. No, it won’t. I am still Maddee and I haven’t changed.
Has anyone told you that you couldn’t do something due to your diabetes, and you proved them wrong?
Nope! I can do anything! I am awesome 🙂
