I am now a full grown adult juvenile diabetic and I was able to find a diabetes camp that would let me be an instructor. The experience was so much fun to talk to kids about diabetes and to let them know that it doesn't go away after you turn 18, and to discuss favorite treatments for lows and favorite meters and all sorts of stuff. If you have the diabetes or know of anyone with the diabetes. I strongly suggest that you attend a camp or volunteer with a camp. Think about little me and how I was so alone all my life not knowing that I wasn't a bad person or not taking care of myself properly because I was scared to be around others with diabetes for so long. I can't wait till next year and see all the friends I made at diabetes camp. It's so much fun to be able to speak native diabetes language with others and not have to decipher it to English for the non-diabetes people in the world.
