My drawing of my mum, me and my dad on the day I was diagnosed.
Dr. Johnson was my first diabetic doctor and he used to squeeze my fingers so hard to get the blood out of them that I would nearly cry.
Me on my fourth birthday, about a month after I was diagnosed as being Type 1 Diabetic
How it felt when I was diagnosed. The Diabetes Police.
My Uncle David and I around the time I was diagnosed.
My Uncle David is also a Type 1 Diabetic.
A family holiday in Ireland. This photo is of my mum (the lady with the camera), my cousin Chloe (the girl in the red shorts) and my Uncle Mark.
My Uncle Mark is also a Type 1 Diabetic.
I am at the corner of the photograph, stabilising my blood sugar levels with some carby crisps.
This is only part of my diabetic trail. An old needle, needle wrapper and old insulin cartridge.
These were in the drinks holder of my boyfriend's car. I am ashamed!
I always feel that when I say 'I'm diabetic', they assume that I'm either obese or old.
No, I'm Type 1 and even Type 2's aren't always overweight or OAP'S.
This is me now, aged 18, at my friend's house, testing my blood sugar levels at 2 am.
I am a type 1 diabetic :)
