hi I am Dezera I just got type one diabetes last mouth and I was very scared. But it is getting better as I go. What I do not get is how I got it anyway. I am only 14 years old and it fills like I gave up my life for this. I do not fill like myself half of the time. Plus I just got sick with a cold and it is no fun

Hello Dezera and welcome.

WebMD has an excellent Diabetes Health Center that has a good overview of Type 1 Diabetes. Here is a link: http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/guide/diabetes-overview-facts

You need to learn all you can about this disease so you can control it and live a full live. Do more research on the internet, ask your doctor and your parents lots of questions. If you take care of yourself and do what you need to you will be fine.
