I was just diagnosed and i want to know how you do this? This is a thing i cant change but so you have any advice for a thirteen year old diabetic in 8th grade?
Over time, you being to develop a routine in which you can make diabetes bend to your lifestyle. You can still live the life you had prior to diabetes; it just takes a little bit of practice. Now that you know what adversity is, nothing can hold you back :o)
You'll figure out how to make diabetes fit into your life. If you like to read, there are a ton of good diabetes books. www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/d_06_b00.htm
I'd recommend "Think Like a Pancreas" which is written by a guy who was diagnosed at 14 and went on to be an exercise physiologist and diabetes educator.
