My name is Arzu Zaiba Hattam 13 years old and I am a career to my mother. My mother has type 1 diabetes (an Autoimmune disease) and although it may not be a debilitating disease it can still be very difficult for her and when things affect mum in a major way they affect all of us.
My mum often has to test her blood’s sugar levels and inject herself with insulin. My mother goes through mass amounts of stress and this can be dangerous for her so I must be there to support her by helping out around the house and making sure my siblings are taken care of.
My role as a career is to help mum when needed whether it be helping with her medicines or helping around the house I try to help. I don’t have to do much around the house because mum does most of it but sometimes when things like laundry need to be done I am able to step in and help.
I have two younger siblings that I live with, a ten month old and a five-year-old, I love each of them to bits but sometimes it can get a bit difficult for mum so I have to make sure they are not hassling her, to be honest they can get a little difficult for me too but I know that mum has important thing to do.
