Back to Kids' Voices Frankie

Hello my name is Frankie and I am 10 years old. I live in West Virginia.

I got diabetes in May of 2000. It was so hard from the start I had to learn so much and I cried a lot. But once I started getting my blood sugars down I felt better. Since then I have had a lot of problems. Dr. Jones calls me a brittle diabetic but I still have a lot of fun.

The first year I went to camp was great. I didn't think I would like it, but they taught me so much and I had a blast! If you have a chance to go to camp you should go.

I have a brother who is eleven his name is Justin. I also have a sister who is 15 her name is Kristin and I tell her she's a pain all the time. She just laughs at me. I get to start on a swimming team this year I can't wait. My best friend is Seth. We are in the same class.

If you want to be my penpal you can write me at yugiohmstr[@] I love it. It is my favorite game and show. I hope to hear from you soon.
