Hi I'm Phoebe, I'm nearly 7 and I've recently being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
It was a bit of a shock to me and my parents but I think we've got a good grip on it now, I don't mind the insulin pens so much but for me the worst part is the blood sugar test as the ends of my fingers hurt afterwards but I suppose it's a small price to pay to make sure I'm OK.
I'm a very active young girl who loves bouncing on my trampoline and taking part in many physical activities, I don't let my diabetes stop me from doing what I want.
I sometimes think my parents worry about me to much, but I know they care about me a lot and only "fuss" because they care. When I'm older my Dad says I can write a blog about my Diabetes which should be fun. Anyway I'm off to cause my Mum n Dad some more grief now (lol).
