As a child I had difficulty with my weight and concentration as I was easily tired. It escalated to being much more tired and this affected me throughout primary and secondary school. I eventually was diagnosed at the age of seventeen as my symptoms escalated. It was a late diagnosis considering I was poorly for a long time but that's the issue, the symptoms seemed so mild and very easily missed. I am the only one in my family for generations with diabetes which has led me to write this book to let every child they are not alone and raise awareness to adults so they can help understand the signs.
