"I don't get embarrassed about my diabetes. My friends all care about me and want to help - even my new friends. I tell my friends at school about it on the first day so they all know and look out for me."

Best piece of advice from Charlotte's mother: Connect with other T1D families! Knowing other children are going through this has been so important for my daughter, and knowing other moms and dads out there are struggling with the same issues has been so comforting for my own sanity. Sharing frustrations, fears, tips, resources, etc., has helped me in so many ways.
