This is my little brother Dom. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 5, my mum and step-dad were in shock, and since then it has been a struggle for them, getting up 4 times a night to check his sugar levels, weighing every piece of food for him so he doesnt go too high or too low, my mum hasn’t had a job in 3 years because shes scared that my brother will need her. He literally means the whole world to me and this is the only family I really have. I don’t know what I’d do without him. He’s 8 now and healthy, he has a pump which tells him his levels and he’ll know whether he’s too high or too low. If youve taken the time to read this thank you. I love him to death.
