Love to read everyones replies. My son was diagnosed on December 17th 2007, at 4 years old. I think we can all agree whether were the one with type one or the parent of, we will never forget the day we found out. Its like a holiday or birthday we dont celebrate, but will always be engraved in our minds.

I was nine. I was diagnosed during the school year and since I was in the hospital I was excused from doing a book report I had been dreading. So that was a plus!

8....I feel very bad for the babies and toddlers. I hear that some people are glad that they got it an a young age so they don't know anything differently, but the older your diagnosis is, the less complications you will have at an earlier age.
