Hi! My name is Julia. I'm 8 1/2 years old. I have had Diabetes since I was 5. The doctor discoverd it at a regular check-up, which I guess was lucky because I didn't feel sick yet. The worst part was the first day when the doctor had to take lots of blood for testing. I never screamed that loud before or after. I'm pretty used to my tests and shots now. I sometimes wish for all the candy that other kids can have but we try to keep sugar-free treats and ice cream around which I like.
We have a place in Vermont and I love horseback riding there. My riding teachers name is Roger. I sometimes ride a horse named Bon-Bon. She is a white horse with brown spots on her back. I also love figure skating. I take lessons every Friday and I want to take private lessons so I will get even better. I also take Gymnastics, which I like a lot and piano lessons which are just okay.
My 4-year old sister is named Sophie and my brother is named Jake. They are twins. I have a hamster of my own named Hampton; and my family has a dog, her name is Molly. We have 2 birds named beautiful Beauty and Peter (my brother and sister named them).
