Back to Kids' Voices Shane

My name is Shane. I am 11 years old and have had diabetes for a year.

I don't like testing my blood or taking my shots. I really don't like needles, but I have learned how to give myself shots and it's not so bad. I am hoping to start on the pump soon. I like to play XBOX, especially the game Halo, and I like to play with my friends. I play football and my team is in the playoffs right now. I like to draw.

I hope they find a cure for diabetes someday. I would like to hear from other kids that have diabetes. I know only one other kid at my school and he is three years older than me, so feel free to write to me.

You can e-mail me and my family at karalee_mcdo AT

I'm the one on the far left in the Gangster Tux
