Back to Kid' Voices LilleAnn

My grammie is typing this for me.

Hi my name is LillieAnn. I am 10 years old, and I was just diagnosed with diabetes on May 28, 2010. I am brand new to all this and would like to know as much about this as possible.

I have a dog named Molly Mae and she is 2 years old. I got her from my Great Aunt Debra for Christmas 2008. My brothers dog Scooter thinks he belongs to me as well!

I have 3 brothers 1 older brother and 2 younger brothers.

I am going into 5th grade and may have to change schools, I am not happy about that right now and think diabetes stinks.

I think diabetes is very scary, I get so upset sometimes because I do not think it is fair that I have this diabetes thingy!

I am very hungry all the time and do not think it is fair that I can not eat like everyone else!

I always feel mad, sad and do not think it is fair that it is me!

Why does the needles have to be so sharp, and so long! and why should I take 5 to 7 shots a day! Why can they not make 1 shot to last all day?
