My name is Vanessa and I live in Ontario, Canada. I was diagnosed February 12, 2012 at the age of 7.
It came as quite a shock to my family. I was tired, thirsty, hungry and crabby all the time and lost a lot of weight. My mom thought I was depressed because she was working a lot but realized something was very wrong after my favorite activities didn’t make me feel better.
I am still learning about diabetes and all the things that go along with it. So are my friends and family, who have been very supportive of me.
I am looking forward to going to Diabetes Camp this year and am also curious about insulin pumps and if they’re right for me.
I have a great diabetic team at the hospital who have been fantastic, and even though the clinic visits are long, we learn a lot every time and I continue to feel better every day!
If you would like to write to me you can email my mom at .
