Hi, my name is James. I am 8 years old. I found out I had diabetes last summer (July 2006).
My mom took me to the doctor because I was drinking all the time and getting more and more sleepy. I spent five days in the hospital until my sugar was back to normal. I also found out that I have a hypothyroid.
It has been a little hard getting used to having diabetes but I still have a lot of fun with my friends and playing sports. I like to play computer games like Runescape and Xbox. I also like to play hockey, soccer and basketball.
You can email me and my parents at
