Diagnosis Day
By Connor Comolli

In the blink of an eye, everything changed....

I was diagnosed with diabetes,
I wasn't feeling well.
I got shots in my arm,
thank goodness it didn't swell.

I was at the hospital,
for about a week.
I found something better than shots,
I really had to seek.

The invention is really helpful,
it is called a pump.
It gets stuck to me,
with a tiny little thump.

Till this day,
it is always with me.
I can't get rid of it,
even with help from thee.

I test my blood sugar,
and watch what I eat.
I plan all my meals,
and even my treats.

I'm allowed to eat anything,
like other kids do.
I'll try to go overboard,
but than I feel blue.

My life changed that day,
In a blink of an eye,
But I can handle anything,
cause I have Irish eyes.
