Back to Kid' Voices McKayla

My name is McKayla. I'm six years old, I'll be seven in a few weeks. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in November of 2009. I was drinking and going to the bathroom alot, and very sleepy all the time. And my stomach hurt all the time. Then I went to the hospital, they gave me an I.V. I named it the robot. I was scared to be diabetic. I didn't like my shots. Now I'm getting use to them. I'm looking for diabetic friends, someone to be pen pal's with.

I love horses and my dog Chloe. I take ballet classes. My ballet teacher, Miss Debbie, is also type 1 diabetic.
