14 year old Claire from Scotland

Hello...My name is Claire Mairi Sheridan, I'm 14 and I live in Scotland! I have had diabetes for two years, when I was first diagnosed I was really unwell, very skinny and when they told me what was wrong I really didn't understand! I hated the idea of being different I didn't have a clue what it was! But with the help of my family and the wonderful people at Yorkhill Hospital I survived! I have suffered greatly over the past two years as do a lot of people with diabetes! Then about 1 or 2 months ago the people at Yorkhill Hospital offered me the pump, I was delighted and had been on your website before and had I loved reading every bodies experiences! It helped me a lot with getting used to the idea of having diabetes with the pump! I am starting the pump therapy on Tuesday the 19th and am very excited! And thanks to your website I'm not Nervous! So I'd like to say I love you all and thank everyone who has written their experiences on this website as it has helped me a lot!! Thanks so much!

Love Claire x x x
