I got diabetes Type 1 when I was 7, but now i'm 10 years old, i've had it for three years,and sometimes i wake up in the morning and i feel like eating sweets but i cant, so sometimes i get quite upset, and when other people eat sweets infront of me i just have to get along with it. I have been in hospital five times or more of sickness. When i go to other peoples houses they are worrying all the time if i'm okay. Sometimes people dont let me go to their houses incase i get poorly or ill, sometimes they dont know what to do, but since i was 7 i have been doing it independently. I started with injections and now i have a pump.
