My dream job

Do you know what I really want to be when I grow up? (Probably not but here we go) I really really really want to be in the military or the army or something like that. I always change my mind about the jobs I want to do but this is one that has been in my list for a pretty long time! Well there’s one little problem ( ok maybe a big problem but whatever) So I was just talking about what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said I want to be in the military or army and my mom was like ” I don’t think that is going to happen because of you have diabetes (ok when I first got diagnosed they said u could do anything I wanted) I was very upset when my mom told me this almost in tears ( this is why I started this blog) I looked up on google if diabetics could be in the military ( looked on every sight I possibly could) every single sight I looked at was”If you have any serious medical condition you are not permitted to join the military ” I was so upset but I have lots of hope that diabetes will be cured before I am at least 30-40. That is my dream job 

You know that feeling 

If you are a diabetic (or have a condition where you have a bag to carry) then sometimes you get a really bad knot in you’re stomach that you will always be different because you have to carry a bag around everywhere and it’s just hard to accept that you’re different you will never be like your friends and you just need someone to relate to and one day there will be a cure and we won’t be different from everyone else and we just need faith and hope cause it will happen one day it might not be in my lifetime but I will still have hope for those people

A Diabetic 

Hi!, My name is Laylah I am 11 years old (I know I’m a little young to be on this site) It was June 14th 2016, I was just at the beach I was having a normal issue so my mom took me to the doctor to check me out and he asked me if I was using the restroom a lot and I said yes( it was unbelievable how many times I used the bathroom) He asked me if I was drinking a lot of water and I said yes I was drinking 3-4 bottles of water a day ( I would normally always have Sprite but I was so thirsty I would drink water) I also lost a lot of weight it’s unreal, Blury vision,Mood swings, Blah Blah Blah so then they asked me if I had ever had my finger pricked and I saw my moms face drop , (That worried me a lot) Of course I said yes (I get it every check-up now) so then they leave the room I ask my mom what’s wrong she said nothing. Before they came back in I was complaining about my day here we go, I was like”I have had a bad day today here’s what happened First, I did not get to go in my aunts pool because it was raining,(I stayed with my aunt that day)Second, I had to go to the doctors office that day and I hate the doctors office, Then, after they pricked my finger I got a bright orange band aid ( I am a big Alabama fan Tennessee vols our rivals color is orange) I was like”Nothing could get worse than this” Those STUPID STUPID words. The doctor came in and said”I am sorry to tell you that Laylah has diabetes.” My mom started crying so I started crying ! The doctor said I needed to be admitted to the hospital
