My life

by Cayla

I was diagnosed 3 months before I turned 2 in December of 1998. I was on shots for most of my life until about 3 or 4 years ago when I switched over to the pump. I have a minimed insulin pump and haven't always loved it at all!! However the pump is better for most to regulate your levels and several people have told me so!

I'm about to be 14 on March 12th and at times I hate being diabetic since I'm the only one with it in my grade but I always try to remember when I was little and used to say that I was the one with diabetes for a reason and that I loved having it! I hope that everyone with diabetes could have that same attitude as I did when I was little or even some times now!!

Great attitude!
by: Miriam

This is a great article! Though short and sweet it captures exactly what I want other diabetics to see! It is so important to have a good attitude about your diabetes otherwise you will only be stressed and feel hopeless, not to mention that having a good attitude is great for your health as well! Thanks Cayla for being an encouragement to other young diabetics and for having a great attitude about your diabetes. Keep on shining!
