Hia! My name is Lucy Morris and I have been diabetic for about 3 years now. I live in the U.K.

First of all, I lost lots of weight, and then my eyesight went bad, and I was having trouble seeing. I went to the opticians and they referred me to a eye specialist. He diagnosed me as having cataracts, which meant having to have a operation on my eyes, and then later on, having laser treatment. I then got referred again to a paediatric doctor, and he was the one who confirmed me having diabetes. I was then sent to Boston Hospital. I don't think diabetes is the worst thing in life. My control is really good, and I went on the diabetes UK trip, to Aveimore, and it was so good, and I learnt lots of things. If you would like to e mail me, or talk, then my e mail address is bacardi_babe75[@]hotmail.com. or lucy[@]lucylocket200.fsnet.co.uk.

I am on two insulin injections a day. Sometimes I think that sometimes I really can't be bothered to do my injections, and then I think, well, it's keeping me alive, so I'd rather have a little prick than lose my life! I use the MediSense SoftSense (called the Sof-Tact in the US), which means I can do my blood testing on my arms or on my thumbs. I also think that being diabetic doesn't mean I'm not a normal girl, because I am! And the trip to Scotland has shown me that I can do anything that any other person without diabetes can do!

Anyway, I hope my story has inspired many people!

Hope to hear from you soon!
Love,
Lucy
