Feelings on Diabetes

Mad. Sad. Glad. It all started with Dad. He took me to the doctor. She was sort of like a proctor. She looked over at me. It was easy to see I had diabetes.

She told us to take a bag. That made me sag. I was going to the hospital. It wasn’t like playing ball. I was scared and frightened. I wasn’t enlightened. The sound of keytone Was not like an ice cream cone. I was in my own little zone.

Sad Poem

I poke my fingers To check my sugar.

I have to take shots Before I eat.

I’m tired of all this. I wish it was easier.

I can’t go to my friends’ houses. They don’t know what to do.

I wake up every night at 3:00 a.m. To check my sugar.

I wish it would all end.

It Will Be All Right

Carina, 14, sibling

I worry about my sister when her sugar is low. She has a meter and a shot To save her from feeling bad. And when she takes the shot, It will be all right.

I imagine sometimes: what if I Had to take a shot? I think it would hurt. But she is brave. I’m glad she’s not scared Of the shot, and that she has Mom, me, and Dad and Cameron And Vanderbilt To help.
