Hi ! My name is Andrea Martinez. I'm 5 years old and I live in Madrid, Spain. I was diagnosed on December 1, 1998. I was visiting the toilet very often, drinking a lot and losing a lot of weight. After a few days, my Mom was very worried and brought me to the hospital where they explained to us all about my new situation and my future. I am handling my "new situation" quite well, for sure better than daddy and mom. They showed to me the photos of the other kids with diabetes. It is good to know that I'm not alone and that most of them still smile. You can send me e-mails to my mom's address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Muchas gracias y adios.
