The Real Me

Ruchie Bromberg

The Real Me is a great way to learn about different challenges kids face. This month we will be hearing from a very brave girl with diabetes. The more you know about diabetes, the less self-conscious a friend will feel. Understanding and acceptance are important and you’ll learn about early warning signs to help a friend in need.

All of a sudden, during the summer of sixth grade (wow, that was two and a half years ago already, I can’t believe it!), I started getting very thirsty. And I mean very thirsty. I always wanted to drink. It didn’t matter how much I drank, I needed more. I wanted sugared drinks. I was always very tired and had no strength.
