Sue was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 1965 and has seen many changes over the years - she's shared her experiences of her diagnosis, treatment and why she's decided to leave a gift in her Will.
I remember my first syringe was a great big metal thing with a needle the size of a knitting needle. My mother had to keep it in surgical spirits to sterilise it.
