The Sugar Princess
Diagnosed with Type 1 on 6/12/2007
Current age: 5 years old
I currently attend preschool and enjoy drawing,
coloring, painting, creating things, and playing with my big sister.
My family and I are thankful that insulin was discovered.
My fingers are poked 8-10 times a day to monitor my blood sugar.
I get 4-6 insulin shots everyday.
Insulin is my life support.
It is a balancing act between insulin, food, and exercise.
Sometimes we win, but sometimes it is a struggle.
I have a family who loves me.
They help me get through the tough times.
I look forward to saying......
‘I used to have Type 1 Diabetes!”
