Hi my name is Chloe
I am 10 years old and was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 in September at the age 7. I have to check my bloods four times a day and do my insulin four times a day. I am now used to my diabetes and my routine and now I understand my diabetes never lets me down. Now i've found this website I feel allot happier to find people with the same thing as me.
I have once had a hypo at school just in the middle of assembly I ended up walking to outside my school then I woke up and found myself in the toilets with my nan who was doing my bloods for me.It was scary then I walked to the car and went home then hours later I felt better.I don't know anyone else in school or outside school with the same thing as me so on this website I am hoping to find some friends to talk to.
