Back to Kids' Voices Tiffani

My name is Tiffani. I am 13 years old. I live in Louisiana.

July will make it five years that I have had diabetes but it seems like 100 years. I got diabetes when I was seven years old in 1999. I hate having diabetes because I don't really feel normal like everyone else and since I'm in middle school I try to be as normal as possible while being myself.

I was with my dad and he brought me to the hospital because he was worried. I was surprised that he was the one to bring me. My mom just thought I had a cold and she was the nurse in my family. My mom and dad aren't together anymore. but my step dad is really tite. Anyway, he brought me to his family doctor and he told my dad to bring me to the hospital and then ya'll all know what happenes next!

My favorite colors are red, blue, and black. I would like if some one that lives by me would teach me to skateboard. I really wanna learn. I can play the piano but I dont really like it. I would rather be on the phone or something like that. I would like it if someone my age and knows what I go through would e-mail me at .
