Who needs to know?
Hey, I'm a 13 year old girl who has had type one diabetes since I've been 4 years old. Through the years while struggling with diabetes, I've learned that honestly, not everybody has to know that you even have the condition! :) If I meet someone new, I just don't tell them if it seems unnecessary... for instance, I'm in grade 7, but I've decided that when I go to high school, the only people that are going to know about my condition are my teachers, and best friends. This gives me a bit of a boost of self esteem, knowing that nobody even knows I'm different that way. They can't judge me on it, so they can't hurt my feelings. :) So if you're reading this and you think that you're being judged upon it, just remember that nobody has to know if you don't want them too! :D
