Back to Kids' Voices Anita

Hello my name is Anita and I live in Australia. I am 11 years old and have had diabetes for seven years now. I am already used to it. I live like a normal person. I go to school. I go to sleepovers.

To someone who just got diagnosed with diabetes, I would just like to say do not be afraid. It is no pain at all to check your blood. Don't be afraid. Don't worry -- be happy.
