Ever since I was a little girl, I have felt different from all the other girls my age. Not only physically, but also emotionally. Physically, I am different because I am a Type One diabetic. Diabetes comes in two forms; Type One is the disease that spreads throughout the body, having no absolute cure. I was diagnosed when I was six years old, being placed in a dark hospital where I was hooked up to wires and had IVs in my veins. This makes me special because I have learned to take care of myself from a very young age. Over the years, I have grown more independent and mature.
To me, the little things are just as important as the big events in my life. I try to focus on going through life day by day. Emotionally, I do care about what others think, I am sensitive in that sense. I have trained myself to let myself be free from the hate and the negativity. With having a life-threatening disease, I have to enjoy every moment like it is my last.
Think of things that make you different and special from others.
