My name is John Cochrane and I live in Ayrshire, Scotland.

I’ve had type 1 diabetes since I was 4 years old, right now I am 9 years old.

My birthday is on the 10th  of November.

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on the 2nd of May 2007.

The reasons my mum took me to the hospital was because I was drinking a lot and peeing a lot.


My favourite things to do are athletics, playing my Xbox 360 and playing the guitar.

I have rules for my Xbox 360 that is  I’m only aloud on it 3 days a week those days are Monday, Tuesday  and Friday.

I have athletics on Thursdays at 6.45pm and it finishes at 8pm.

At athletics, we do: running, long jump, relays and lots more.


I have my guitar lessons on a Thursday as well as athletics. My guitar lesson is at  3.55pm with my tutor Stephen. My first exam is on the 19th of June 2012 .
