Melissa (on the right) and a friend
My name is Melissa and I am almost 13 years old. I am going into the 8th grade this year. I was diagnosed with diabetes about a year ago. My uncle has diabetes and has had it since he was 12. I live with my Mom, Dad and brother.
I have a dog named Dumpster. We named her that because we found her in a dumpster when she was a puppy.
