When Were You Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes?
#1
Hi, just wondering if there are any other Type 1 Diabetics out there!

I was diagnosed 2 years ago at age 22. It came as a big shock to me as I thought Type 1 Diabetes was "just for children". My symptoms were weight-loss and constant thirst. When I finally went to the doctor my blood sugar was sky high. It was difficult adapting to the requirements of the disease, what with the constant finger pricking, 4 daily injections, and basically learning to carry sugar on me at all times. Let me tell you, I got over my fear of needles real fast. So, that's my story. Feel free to share your own!
