Hello, I have a younger point of view than most I know and I hope it is useful. My name is Carly, and I am a tenth grader in America.
I almost died
Lets start with my early life. I was born to a long line of diabetics, those with chronic diseases, and obesity. My mother was a diabetic at age sixteen. I was born ill, with one kidney and one-half of the other. I got a liver disease in my toddler stage, had colic from a young age, and nearly died on multiple occasions from my own illnesses. Age six and I gained extreme amounts of weight, I got depressed, and overall I lost my childish nature. I had a gigantic amount of mental and physical problems for almost my whole life, and it kept getting worse. In 2016 my mother died and it ruined my A average, thankfully it was just a bout of fatigue and regret.
