Join my daughter Lexz to find the cure for Diabetes!!!
Hi my name is Lexz, I may seem like your typical 13 year old girl and I am. But my days are not like any typical teenager, see I have Type 1 diabetes...
The day my family and i found out is a day we will never forget. It was January 02, 2007, I was only 5 years old. My mom knew something was not wright. I was always thirsty and wanted to sleep a lot and had no energy. I woke up early for breakfast that morning and was so weak i fell down and then I got real pale. My Mom then rushed me to the hospital. When we got into the ER the staff rushed me to a room and the doctors took blood from me. They came back less the 45 minutes later, looked at my mom and told her i had Type 1 diabetes and that my sugar levels were over 1000. They then transported me to a different hospital where they had a children's ICU.. I was in the hospital for 4 days.
When I got home life became different, now i can not eat when I want and what i want. Now every time I eat anything I have to check my blood sugar and give myself a shots. At night before bed I have to check my blood sugar and give myself a shot. When my blood sugar is HIGH I have to give myself more shots and I feel yucky. When my blood sugar is LOW I feel yucky. Sometimes fingers hurt from poking them so much.
