At the age of 24 I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Otherwise a healthy individual, a seemingly harmless trip to urgent care, and then the ER, changed my life forever. Once diagnosed, I naturally found it difficult to cope with the daily pressures of this chronic disease on a daily basis. When I tried to reach out to the local Diabetic community, I was welcomed with open arms, but still found myself disappointed. Most local support groups targeted children with T1D, since most people are diagnosed with Type 1 early in life, meaning the group was full of moms. While their insight and advice was invaluable, they still did not see T1D through my eyes. In an effort to reach out to other Twenty-Somethings with T1D, this blog emerged.
