Tell us about you (Short, optional bio): Hi, I've been a T1 diabetic since before the age of one.  I am now almost 48.  My first DKA was when I was 5, even though I don't remember it.  When I was 11, I started having seizures and they continued until I was 19.  At the age of 18, we (my family and I) found out that I have high cholesterol and blood pressure.  I have been in therapy for depression almost my entire life.
The reason I am telling you all of this is to show that we (T1Diabetics) can survive anything if we put our minds to it
