Hi I am Stefani. I am 7 years old. I live in New Jersey.
I was diagnosed on October 29, 2006 with type 1 diabetes. I hate getting my finger pricks because my mom wakes me up in the middle of the night.
My mom said because I wet the bed 2-3 times, I was drinking a lot and also lost a lot of weight in about 7 weeks, I probably had diabetes. So she took me to the hospital and thay said I did have diabetes. My blood sugar was 824 and had a lot of ketones. I got scared about it. I was in the Hospital for 6 days!
My little sister doesn't like watching me get my needles. I like diabetes because you get a lot of attention. I love going horseback riding, ice skating, swimming and playing baseball. My favorite animals are horses, snakes, frogs, and bats.
