I know I have diabetes but that hasn’t stopped me from staying in school, playing football, swimming and many other activities. I’ve got lots of friends (a couple have diabetes). My family is made up of 2 brothers ,that support and help me with diabetes, and my parents who couldn’t have done better to help me and protect me. Lastly, I eat a lot but my a1c is always decent and as long as I’m healthy I will eat as much as I want for the rest of my life. I don’t define my life as being overcome by a disease; I’m just a normal kid with blood checks and a couple needles.
