My 9-year-old son was just diagnosed. Would love to connect with parents/kids in Arizona. We’re new to this; I feel completely overwhelmed.
Where are you in AZ? My son is 9 and was diagnosed 2 years ago. We live in Tucson.
We live in Gilbert. Has your son attended one of the summer camps?
No, we are little overprotective, not really comfortable sending our kids off, even though I’m sure they would do great with the T1D stuff.
We also have a 15-year-old boy that was diagnosed at the same time, and we’ve done a lot of research about products and stuff, if you have any questions. There is a T1D “walk” in Tucson every year in October. We brought a bunch of people down from the PHX area last year, it was really awesome.
Yes, we’d be interested in going to the Tucson walk! Are your kids on the insulin pumps and/or continuous glucose monitoring system? My son was diagnosed only 1 week ago, and is already tired of finger pricks.
How did you discover both your children were Type 1? We have an older child, also; she’s 13-years-old.
Btw, our son has a Facebook page called From Kellen’s View, where he talks about the things he’s going through regularly. You and your son may find it interesting.
Completely understand where you are coming from. My son just turned 12 and was diagnosed in January. We have learned a lot since and we are here in Gilbert!
Hi! We are in Tucson too. I jave a 14 yr. Old boy who needs friends with T1D. He doesnt know anyone with T1 and it secretctly gets him although he wont admit it. Been diagnosed since 7yrs.
