Parents are over concerned about my Diabetes

I’m a 13 year old boy and I feel that my parents are worrying a little much. I have been a diabetic since I was 7 and am on a pump and can check my own sugars give my own injections and insulin and all that.
They often won’t let me go to the movies with friends because what if I pass out and no one will know what to do. and even their parents come and know im diabetic. One of my friends parents asked if i could go to an amusement park with them for the day. Its an hour and a half away. Once again I couldn’t go because what if i passed out. no one would know what to do.
There’s going to be days in life when im an adult and have to go places, and I can’t call them for permission and it just makes me upset that this condition owns my life. How do I earn my freedom. I make good grades and know how to care for my condition. I try to be a good kid.

    You friends and their parents know you have diabetes. At amusement parks and places like that, they have people trained to take care of such situations. Many people have diabetes, so I’m sure they’d be prepared.

    You have to tell your parents that there is no point to living if all you do is live; you need to have fun and do things in life, not just sit back in fear o what could happen.

    You take care of yourself properly and it wouldn’t really be any different than if you passed out at home, there would just be trained people nearby.

    I’m sorry you have to go through this, it must be so annoying and frustrating. Don’t be mad at your parents though, they just love you and don’t want anything to happen, even if the chances are they won’t.
