    Hi. i am from Romania. I have diabetes at 7 years. Today at age 15 I see diabetes with other eyes. I meet everyone else and I want to be just like everyone else. I do not ignore the treatment but I do not stress too much in the calculations. kisses

    That's great Alex! Enjoy life and live it to the fullest. What are you taking or doing to control the diabetes?

    Regular insulin. Other than that good faith and friends that accept me as I am. Diabetes has become a minor thing in my life and I'm really grateful that I can enjoy life as everyone else. I hope the same will happen to you. :))
