Hello my name is Charlotte I am 8 and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just before I was 7 in March 2006. I live in the U.K.
I am on 4 times a day insulin shots but have been recently looking into having a pump.
I have been doing my own injections since I was diagnosed and mum and dad think I am the bravest girl they know!
Sometimes I get fed up and angry at having diabetes and I do ask my mum "why me?" I hope they find a cure one day.
I am the only one in my junior school with diabetes but it doesn't stop me doing anything I still do lots of sports and dancing and trampolining and have lots of fun!
My favourite foods are pizza, bbq chicken, pasta, bagels, bacon, roast potatoes and chocolate cake!
I would like pen pals from anywhere in the world and I hope to make some new friends who also have diabetes.
Love Charlotte xx
