(waiting for the endocrinologist)
Today marks one year since I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I guess you could call it an anniversary, but so far, it hasn’t been a very happy one. My endocrinologist had me take some tests. They weren’t math or spelling tests, but they were just as bad. I had to pee in a cup , and I had to get a blood test ! Even though I get 5 shots a day, having blood taken directly from your vein really hurts. The only good thing about it was the Lego set I got from my mom for having to go through it all. But wait, there’s more. I also had to have my eyes checked and dilated ! I had to wear these big weird sun glasses after I left the optometrist because my eyes were sensitive to light. It was even hard to see the directions for my Lego set.
