Welcome to the club no one wants to be a member of!

Type 1 is rough, but there are so many advances in the past 2 decades it's become easier than ever to live and treat. Look at this positively…now you know and being diagnosed is actually the best thing that could have happened!

Welcome! This is a great place for info. and friends. I know there are some type1s on here that are doing very well and never seem to have complications, if that helps. There is much hope.

Greetings! Welcome to our site. My most important words of wisdom to you is that diabetes is not a problem… uncontrolled diabetes is! You have much to learn from each of us as we have much to learn from you. It doesn't matter what type of diabetic you are as long as you are the type that wants education, inspiration, and motivation. Need friends? Click on the crazy old man's picture to the left and select the "add a friend" button and you'll be added to my list where I take the label "friend" quite seriously. There's no need to stick to the topic of diabetes. I am a pretty well rounded (besides just body shape) person with a lot of hobbies and interests. The key is that we're in it to win it. Let me know if there is anything I can say or do to help on your journey.

I like how you said that, "diabetes is not a problem, uncontrolled diabetes is." I never thought about it that way.
