Hello everyone!

I am 33 years old and was just recently diagnosed with Type 1 a few weeks ago! I look forward to chatting with everyone and learning more about this illness.

Thank you!

Welcome Stephanie, nice to meet you. I was 54 when diagnosed T1D and have spent alot of time educating myself. I have only 2 people I see every now and again who are also T1D. I like to chat with them, but sometimes I feel like I am imposing on their time. I started on a pump 3 months ago and it has been fantastic! Welcome to the forum and I hope you enjoy learning as much as I do.
Linda

Hi Stephanie. I’m also new to this community, but I’ve been a type 1 diabetic much longer, 27 years. I’m currently using a pump and a CGM. If you have any questions feel free to ask. WELCOME!

Welcome, Stephanie!

I joined this community a few weeks ago and have found that it’s extremely supportive. I hope you feel welcomed here!
I was diagnosed as a teenager and I’m going on year four, so I still have a lot to learn. I think you’ll be able to find a lot of great tips/resources here. Good luck!

Yes, I agree that this is a good place to find support, encouragement a some really good stories about what success [and other stuff too] people have gad living with diabetes. We share based on our own experience and not as medical care professionals.

If possible, I suggest that if possible you find and attend a “TypeOne Nation Summit”. You can find the Summits by using the “Events” tab at the top of the page - I did and was rewarded by meeting other T1 people close by. The events are free for us because of generous sponsors.

Tyvm I try to get on here often but I haven’t been feeling well and we are getting busy at work with the holidays coming!

Hope you are doing well!

Hello! I was diagnosed about 6 years ago, but have yet to actually meet anyone else with T1D. Glad to have found this community! Also going to take @Dennis advice and look for upcoming events nearby. Can’t wait! :smiley:

Hi, I’m Dawn
I am NEW here and I hope I am in RIGHT place. I’m glad I am here. I have just been reading everybody’s post on everything. I am a mother of a 23 year old son who is type 1. I am sorry for all pain and suffering you all go through. I know my son is giving up AND I almost lost him 3 weeks ago cause his blood sugar DROPPED TO 7. He just had a baby boy who is 3 months old. His finance SAYS they have IT under control but it’s not. They won’t ever tell me anything cause my son hates me upset but I feel I neel.d TO know things like that. One big thing I agree with IS the family should be involved AND I wish I had done more BUT I am now volunteering AND anything else I can do. IS there anyway FOR my son to spare my feelings SO HE CAN tell me when he needs help. God bless you all
