Funny, I thought I was unique with T1 for 51 years, but after reading posts in 2009 from Cheryl5026, LarryM, Kristi1967, Jan_H, and Sandmark, I’m now in good company! However, I am still certain that I was the youngest to be dx with T1 - I was 10 months old!
I am a 17-year Minimed pump user with a Dexcom CGMS.
I was treated for peripheral retinopathy (left eye only!) 15 years ago. I’ve had 6 trigger finger release surgeries, carpal tunnel release in both hands, a dupuytren’s contracture ‘rope’ removed from my left hand, and frozen shoulders.
CONGRATULATIONS to all my semi-centurions!
