Back to Kids' Voices Vaughan
Hi my name is Vaughan. I am 7 years old and I was found to have diabetes just a couple of months before my sixth birthday. I have two injections a day that my mum or dad do. I can do my blood tests anytime it's so easy. Sometimes I have to have more injections if I'm too high. I go to swimming lessons once a week and spend lots of time in our pool. After my lessons I am allowed to have a paddle pop and I like that.

I live in Newcastle, Australia and would like to know anyone from around the world. If anyone would like to write to me my dad got an email address for me -- it is I would like to write to someone about things like toys, games and DIABEASTIES.
