It was nearly two years' ago and I wasn't very well and I had headaches and I was constantly tired. I couldn't get through a meal and i lost a stone in weight. So my mum took me to the doctors and i was diognosed with diabetes type 1. i was really upset and confused since i had no idea what diabetes was. i was taken to hospital and i was there for 5 days and i was taken good care of. Now i can control and take good care of coping with the disease and i know i have the support of my family.
