This is for those who hate diabetes and thinks it changed you completly, Ya diabetes changes us but it doesnt change us in a bad way. Its changes us in a good way. Diabetes makes us a stronger person. It also makes us even more unique. People who dont like us just because we are diffrent its there loss. The people who tease us and call us names or the people who say things that hurt us or even the ones who think they know more then we do about it: those people make us a stronger person.

haha danny i liked that last part that made me laugh

Well said Anna!!! u got the right attitude!

Oh Anna you nailed it! ...I feel stronger already!!

I was diagnosed a little after i turned 4. Ever since then i have been called emo and teased. I have gotton yelled at by teachers cause im diabetic. Im not saying i like haveing diabetes but for those who dont think your strong you need to think harder. There are people out there who could never do what we do. Ya we didnt have a choice but we need to accept the fact that until a cure is found we will be living with this. Those with negative attitudes need to have positive ones. Positive people will be the ones who end up living a healthy life. If you have a negative attitude then you wont want to take care of your self and then who knows will you will be. " A Little Bit Longer And I'll Be Fine " Thats lyrics to the song A Little Bit Longer by nick jonas. We have to prove that diabetes isnt stronger then us. We have to show the people that tease us that so what if we are diffrent we are stronger then diabetes and will end up beating it.

Wow, that's a really powerful statement!

i hope thats a good thing! lol

Yup, I was very impressed with your comment!

Thanks!

You are so right Anna! And what I've found as I've gotten older (I'm 51) is that most people admire what I do to take care of myself with the diabetes. I think you'll find it gets better as you get older. So stay strong and stay an inspiration for people like me!

ik nobody has posted but i thought of a song...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH_dWijufDo
