My older sister was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was just 3 years old. Then, not much later, when I was 7 years old, I was also diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Now, I am almost 13 and I am about to get the pump. It's been 5 years with this disease. Sometimes I get angry, thinking, "Why me?" but then I realize there are so many worse diseases in the world, ones that cannot be treated.
