Last year was my first year going to the Friends for Life Conference and I was really nervous. I thought I would be the only one there with an insulin pump. When we got there I saw so many kids with insulin pumps, even Miss America had one. I tried on her crown too which was GREAT!
I got to meet a lot of kids and try out a lot of cool stuff. I met Julianna from Egypt and she is so nice. My brother Max has diabetes too and he really had fun in the tween group. He even had a night where he sang and acted goofy.
The exhibit hall had a lot of fun stuff to do and learn about. I tried a lot of new things for Diabetes and found tablets that tasted yummy. My group leader was really nice and she made things a lot of fun.
The food was great because everything had the carb count. I can't wait to go back. I am more exctied this year than nervous.
