This is me (right) and my big sister Lauren on holliday in Tenerift before i got my diabetes.
My name is Ashleigh I am 8 yeas old. I have Type 1 diabetes I have had it for 6 month's and i have to inject in the morning and at night. The only thing i dont like about diabetes is having hypo's. I also hate neadles but i have got ues to them. I am hoping to get the pump. My family have help me with my diabetes and now i am more comfertable with it. I like going out to play with my frinds but i get scared in caes i have a hypo. I hate having so many snack a day i love going swimming but afterward i sometimes have hypos. Ruffes my diabetec bear has helped me alot he has helped me to learn how to inject. He has also became a very inporntant person in my family.
