This happened a few years ago when I was a
child. I would eat junk food every single day. I didn’t eat much healthy food. I would eat
chips or candy anything to think of that involved sugar. My mom told me every day I shouldn’t
be doing this I should eat some healthy stuff often but I just ignored her and continued
eating food. A few years past and that’s when we went to the hospital because I couldn’t
really hear much from my ear so you went to the hospital for them to check it out. So when
we went there the nurse want to check my blood sugar so she did. When she poked my finger
was kind of hurt, but I was fine with it. When she came back she had a serious face on her.
She looked at me and looked at my mom and said that I had diabetes. So my mom was scared.
You could tell in her face that she was worried for me. I didn’t know what diabetes was all
I knew that one of my aunts had it. The doctor said that diabetes is when you cannot make
something called insulin that kind of balances your blood sugar. I have to take medication
medicine that was insulin. I have to put it in myself with a shot. I don’t like shots syringes
anything might involve the needle I would just cry. I don’t like needles at all.
It was scary knowing that I had to get shot every single day, check my blood sugar every
single day, and every single day all I see is a needle in front of me. It’s scary. Whenever
I eat and have to put the shot on. My people look at me whenever we’re at restaurants,
like, “Oh my God look at that girl she’s putting a shot on. Whoa what the heck, um, it’s kind
of nerve-racking.” My mom told me that I have to start eating healthy I can’t really eat
that much junk food anymore and that kind of well made me sad. It was like wow I can’t
eat no more junk food no more ice cream or candy. What am I going to do with my life. All I’m ever going to see is green. After a few years I kind of got used to the shots
but I’m still not used to the blood tests. I’m kind of fine with diabetes now, it’s still kind
of scary that knowing diabetes if I don’t take care of myself I might hurt myself you
could damage me I might die. I try my best to just live on act normally just like everyone
else but with friends do whatever normal people can do. But I just want to say take care of
your body and just be careful and stay healthy you guys.

  13. This is all your fault you never wanted to eat healthy now pay for your sins who told you too eat these poisons and thatโ€™s why white kids are becoming disrespectful because white parents donโ€™t give a damn and always be polite Iโ€™m brown and if my parents see me eating junk everyday man I get whipped ๐Ÿ˜‚ thatโ€™s why we brown teens are so healthy itโ€™s been months since I have not took junk food and my fat is going ๐Ÿ˜‹

  14. You can have junk food and sweets you just have to watch how you eat when you have diabetes

  15. My mother told me a story about my uncle because he had Type 1 Diabetes.. every morning she would feed him breakfast and actually really force him to eat it, and she would make him waffles and eggs with a ton of syrup on it, and at the time, nobody knew he was born with diabetes, so he was about 1 years old and he would try to tell her โ€œNo big sister! I donโ€™t wanna eat it!โ€ and she would make him eat it because she strained to cook for him, and she told me after he would have all of that breakfast with so much sugar.. he would make the cringe face, and that part heartbroke me and made me cry.. and its sad that my mom didnโ€™t know about it.. (NOTE: please do NOT start anything about my mom, she did nothing wrong and she didnโ€™t know at the time.)

  16. i think i might be diagnosed with diabetes and i don't know what to do. I'm really scared to tell my parents and i want someone to help me. I always sometimes want to go pee, i feel hydrated right now for the first time and water doesn't work much.

  17. you donโ€™t get type one diabetes from just eating badly! Itโ€™s just when your pancreas stops working and your body canโ€™t produce insulin. Iโ€™m diabetic and I still eat junk food all the time and iโ€™m still A okay

  18. I've got diabetes too since march 2 this year. I know this is hard but i feel happy becouse i know i using a very healthy diet, and don't eat junk food. So we can keep together๐Ÿ˜‰โค

  19. Me: I Feel So Bad

    * Continues To Eat Potato Chips
    Me: Oh Shit MOM LET'S BUY
    SALAD RIGHT NOW ALSO
    BUY LIKE 18 OF THOSE

  20. Not once did you mention the type of diabetes that she has. Which is a huge part of the problem. I mean itโ€™s obvious she has type 2 due to all the junkfood but then the explanation is just wrong. With type 2 diabetes the body develops an insulin resistance. This is easily managed with diet and exercise. With type 1 on the other hand you become insulin dependent FOR LIFE and it has nothing to do with diet. Itโ€™s pretty much just bad luck. It would be great to clarify next time…..

  21. Everyone please stop saying stuff about eating junk food. I have type 1 diabetes and it IS NOT because you eat to much junk itโ€™s because your body attacked the cells that made your body not produce insulin any more to cover your food. You can eat anything you just have to cover your carbs with a shot filled with insulin. Please stop thinking that you canโ€™t eat junk food when you have diabetes that is only with type 2.

  22. Her mom looks fatter than her, even though her mom is the one who eats healthy and shes the one who eats unhealthy

  23. Which Type did she have… I have 1

    Edit: also you can eat whatever you want with diabetes but you just have to take the Insulin for your food. But you should always stay away from soda cuz soda is like (exaggeration) 4 units of insulin. I didnt drink soda at all before i was diagnosed and thats what made my diagnosis wayyy less worse than it could have been. But yeah you can eat what you like but just be prepared to take the insulin needed and how many carbs everything is!! Stay healthy ๐Ÿ™‚
