Living with diabetes can be hard. Having to watch your sugar all the time can be very stress full and annoying as a teenager, but in order to stay alive it is a must. I was only fourteen years old when the doctor had told me I had type one diabetes (the most dangerous one out of the two). I have to prick my finger everyday at least six times a day and have to take up to five shots a day. I hated to have give myself shots everyday of my life. Lucky there is a pump that I can receive to pump the insulin in my body without shots. I have overcome the facts that I would die without the care of myself if I want to live longer no matter how much I dislike it.
