Hi, my name is Jasmin and I have Type1 diabetes.

I'm Jasmin but you can call me Jaz. This is a page for people that have type1 diabetes, this mainly aimed at people arround my age 10-15 but anyone can read it just so they know what it is like to have diabetes day to day. Yes, diabetes is daunting but it gets easier. I was diagnosed with type1 diabetes on the 29th of March 2012, so just a few days ago I was so shocked and so scared at first but as I went along it was starting to get easier. I was admitted to hospital a day after on the 30th of March 2012. I was critically ill and we didn't realise how ill I actually was. I was dehydrated, my sugars were through the roof and I had lost 3 kilos since September 2011, which really wasn't good! Everyone is panicking around me and I feel as if it is all my fault, but the best thing to do is talk it out with someone your close to. It doesn't have to be a family member, it could be your friends at school, a teacher, your nurse, anyone. This is what this page is for as well, if you ever need to discuss something or what to ask me to write about and I will do ;) This is still a learning experience for me too, so bear with me :D Hahah x

Lots of Love,
Jaz<3

  1. Hey Jaz
    Well done for writing this very grown up blog :-) you are inspiring. I've been meaning to write one for over 6 months, maybe you will encourage me along!
    You sound like you've been very brave and mature.
    I'm sorry that you're going through this. How will it affect your everyday life?
    My son, Sebastian used to be in your sister's class at EIC.
    Keep being strong sweetie, love to you and your fam.
    Stay special, Vanessa xx

    1. Hi Vanessa,

      Yes I remember Sebastian :) It's a really lovely idea to write a blog. I have only written 3 entries so far but it has already made me feel so much better. Also, knowing that what I write will help other people as well is a really great feeling. It was a struggle to get used to the fact that I have type 1 diabetes but I figured out, as I go along it will get so much easier. I have bad days were I don't understand it all but on the good days I just think that I can do this and it isn't going to take over my life!
      Thank you for writing to me xxx
